What are the odds that Shohei Ohtani "Comes to Texas" and plays for the Texas Rangers

Section 133 made some noise Tuesday night as they pleaded with an Angels superstar to Come to Texas, but what are the chances this actually happens?

A group of rambunctious fans took over the game on Tuesday night and injected electricity into the stadium and also some loud pleas for a certain Los Angeles Angels superstar. The game saw the Texas Rangers win again on Tuesday night taking game two of the series against the Los Angeles Angels 7-3 and winning their fifth series in a row. The story of the game was not Jordan Montgomery. He had a great performance pitching six innings and striking out a season-high nine batters. It was not Corey Seager, although he once again was amazing as he hit two home runs and had five RBIs on the night. It was the rowdy fans in section 133 who were audibly heard in-person and on the game broadcast from the first to the last pitch.

It all started from a simple instagram post and went viral from there.

It was organized by 20-year old Texas Rangers fan Jake Dupre. He started this community nine-years ago when he was 11 and has seen it grow over the years. It blossomed into a full fledged section takeover on Tuesday night that was seen, heard, and appreciated by the players and coaching staff. Dupre even got a moment in the sun when he was interviewed by Texas Rangers dugout reporter Emily Jones.

This section was loud all night, but one thing they did that really made waves across social media and that was chant, "Come to Texas" during every Shohei Ohtani at-bat. It was loud and taken notice of by Texas Rangers' broadcasters Dave Raymond and C.J. Nitkowski.

The talk around Ohtani is now shifting from a potential playoff run to his free agency. The Rangers fans are not going to be the last fan base to try and lure Ohtani to their city. The question becomes what would it take to sign Ohtani, does he fit on the roster, and what are the odds that Texas would be able to convince him to sign here rather than with other major league teams?
