According to a new report, the leading candidates for Amazon's second North American headquarters are Dallas, New York City, and a DC suburb.

Amazon's request for proposals, made public in September 2017, left open the door that the company could entertain multiple offers, or opt to select none at all, with a disclaimer at the very end of the eight-page document that started the company's HQ2 search.

But Kershaw indicated that he had little interest in uprooting his family out of its in-season home or inking a longer contract. Had the Cubs declined the option and paid a $6 million buyout, the Rangers would have paid the Cubs an additional $6 million.

The long-awaited decision has yet to be made, but the Journal, citing a person familiar with the decision making process, reported that the internet retail titan will choose two locations for their newest headquarters. The company had promised to bring 50,000 high-paying jobs and $5 billion in construction to HQ2's home.

Amazon has not confirmed either report. Dallas-Fort Worth ranked No. 12. Officials aren't turning down the hyperbole any time soon - New York Governor Cuomo recently joked that he'd change his name to "Amazon Cuomo" if it guaranteed a headquarters in the state. Splitting the project in two could also ease concerns over housing and traffic in host cities, the Journal reported. The aging NY subway system has several issues the city is working to fix.
