They better win...and they better win every World Series for the next ten years.  We are talking the LA Dodgers following the $700 million 10-year deal they just entered into with ace Shohei Ohtani.

The Dodgers odds of winning the 2024 World Series still offered a generous payout of $600 on every $100 bet, though Ohtani will be sidelined from pitching this upcoming season.

"To all the fans and everyone involved in the baseball world, I apologize for taking so long to come to a decision," Ohtani wrote. "I have decided to choose the Dodgers as my next team."

Ohtani's contract is the largest in baseball history by more than $250 million, topping the 12-year, $426.5 million extension given in 2019 to Mike Trout, his now-former teammate with the Los Angeles Angels.

His agent, Nez Balelo, issued a news release Saturday announcing the mega deal, ending months of speculation that began even before Ohtani became a free agent on Nov. 2. Ohtani was mostly favored to land with the Dodgers.

In recent days, media and fans had tracked private plane movements and alleged sightings like detectives in attempts to discern the intentions of the two-time AL MVP with the Angels.

“This is a unique, historic contract for a unique, historic player,” Balelo said. “He is excited to begin this partnership, and he structured his contract to reflect a true commitment from both sides to long-term success.”

“He structured his contract to reflect a true commitment from both sides to long-term success,” Balelo said. “Shohei and I want to thank all the organizations that reached out to us for their interest and respect, especially the wonderful people we got to know even better as this process unfolded.
