Still going with the Yanks on this signing. Months I've been reading this was their plan. Need Starters bad. Small Posting Fee, they'll do something crazy, they always do.
Lot of Big name Pitchers going into Free Agency next year,(including Lester) with lots of money coming off the books for the Sox. Doubt the Sox will be in on this. Pretty sure their plan lets see how the kids do in the Minors, this coming year.
Not sure that under the new posting procedures that the Yankees are the favorites given thier fiscal challenge to stay below the luxury threshold. Tanaka will command something north of 20M per and not sure the Yankees have the room given they need multiple starter's and a couple of quality bullpen arms...
[/QUOTE] hey Beans..Happy Holidays..if not us, somehow i see him landing in Texas or one the LA teams(Dodgers/Halos)...
Merry Christmas Jete, He's definitely going to cost big bucks, and a lot of teams have the extra cash this year, which will jack up the competition.
[/QUOTE] hey Mike...same to you..i agree...the Yanks aren't a slam dunk for Tanaka, i feel like they could be behind the 8-ball because they will be dealing from absolute need vs maybe others team that surely want him but could maybe afford to pass..i hope it's us but i still see him landing West
