‘The Drake Curse’ Is Being Blamed For Shohei Ohtani Signing With The Dodgers Over The Blue Jays

Friday was a day of highs and lows for Toronto sports fans.

First they thought a plane carrying MLB superstar Shohei Ohtani was on its way to Toronto to sign a mega contract with the Blue Jays, but it turns out he was still in California. Now he won’t have to leave, since he signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers to a remarkable 10 year, $700 million contract a day later.

One Toronto sports fan following along was Drake. He’s worn his Shohei Ohtani all-star jersey before, and he posted a pic on his IG stories when it seemed like the signing was imminent.
