Clay Travis: Ohtani’s Gambling Scandal Bigger Than Pete Rose’s!



In a recent appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Clay Travis, founder of Outkick, joined host Laura Ingraham to discuss a brewing controversy in the world of baseball involving Shohei Ohtani, a star player for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Travis expressed his bafflement at the situation, saying, “None of it makes sense. Laura, I don’t know how many of your friends could spend 4.5 million of your dollars, and you not know about it while they’re gambling on sports.” He highlighted the legal implications of sports gambling in California, where it remains technically illegal, and the use of a bookie to place wagers.

The conversation took a serious turn when Travis pointed out the potential for a major scandal if there was any indication that Ohtani or his translator bet on baseball. “This would be bigger than Pete Rose because it was at the end of Pete Rose’s career when this happened. Shohei Ohtani right now is in the absolute apex of his career,” Travis explained.

Laura questioned whether the issue would be resolved adequately, given the stakes for the Dodgers and baseball at large. Travis responded, “It depends on how aggressive the investigation is,” and pointed out the implausibility of the translator taking the fall for $4.5 million of theft without Ohtani’s knowledge.

The discussion also touched on the parallels with financial scrutiny in politics, with Laura drawing a comparison to the Biden family’s financial dealings. Travis emphasized the need for transparency, saying, “We need a new translator, and we need to see the documents.”

As the segment concluded, both Travis and Ingraham agreed that the situation surrounding Ohtani and the alleged gambling scandal warrants further investigation and could have significant implications for Major League Baseball.
