    Fascinating deal.  7 years and that much dough for an unknown commodity.  His Japanese numbers are gaudy, for sure.  But so were Matsuzaka's.  Darvish looked like the real deal with the naked eye.  You could see he was electric regardless of what kind of line-ups he was facing.  Hard to say with Tanaka.  He is young, so if he falls on the Yu end of the Dice-Darvish scale, works out great for the Yankees, and also instantly makes them a contender this year.  If he falls on the Daisuke end of the scale though ...

    22 million per year.  He has an opt out at 4 years, so if he is any good he will exercise that making the total more like 26 million (as they spread out the posting fee)  Off the books the total cost to the Yankees would sit at around $36 million a year when you include the salary cap tax. 

    For a guy with a flat fastball who projects as a middle of the rotation starter.

    We have about 5-6 prospects who project as a middle of the rotation starter, even if one pans out we will have our very own Tanaka for less than a million.

    Nice post Hugh.

    I think the Yankees had to do this deal, but that doesn't undo the fact that the money and years are ridiculous.  It's nice to be in the position that the Sox are in with regards to their pitching depth and prospects.

    Flat fastball??

    97 mph is flat?

    [/QUOTE]

    97 is 97.  But you can still be flat at 97.  And a flat 97 gets creamed in the bigs.  Just ask Jon Papelbon.  His 97 flattened out on him and he was never the same.  Not saying that Tanaka has a flat fastball.  I cannot tell from youtube etc. (in the way that I could clearly tell that Darvish's cheese was filthy from youtube etc.).  It sure will be interesting to see if Hugh's scouting eye is sharp on this matter or not. 

    [/QUOTE]

    but it's not 97...and it's flat (reportedly, I haven't seen it) 

     

    Here is nice link about Tanaka where they talk a little bit about his Velo

    With Tanaka signed, #Yankees have committed 29 years and $471 million to nine free agents this offseason.

    Interesting...we'll see if that is enough money to buy a WS.  That kind of money for a guy yet to play in MLB should light a fire under MLB pitchers everywhere as well as the batters who face him.   Makes me more anxious than ever for the season to get underway! GO RS!

    For 2014?

    Nope. Jeter is getting $12.5.

    Drew would have to make that or more. I don't think that's happening.

    Now that it is finalized that the Yanks will not be under the limit... can they please take Drew off our hands and give us another draft pick?

     

    We all knew it was a foregone conclusion that the Yanks would sign Tanaka... it was simply that the price went up for them once other teams were involved with the bidding.  The Yanks have been the Yanks for as long as I have been watching baseball and can always outbid other teams if they really want a player.

    Re: Yankees to sign Tanaka

    There isn't an AL team that needed to make this move more than the Yanks.

    But it doesn't solve their pitching woes.  They get a breather on ARod this season; depending on how Tanaka plays out, that might be the best part of this deal for NYY. 

    Funny, I recall dozens of Yanks' posters screaming about the Sox' Dice K signing.  Not a good move, overpaid, would be foolish to spend $$$ on an unproven pitcher.  Lol.  Tanaka isn't going to light up this league in his first year.  Give him 3-5 years before he's in the NL West, possibly AL in Seattle.  

    What's the opt out clause of this contract? 4 years?

    and to all the Sox fans that worship these yankees fans that post on this board...i dont really care what you think.

    @ the clown - lol at your yankees "trade bait"  that is some funny stuff.  who you going to get with that trade bait?????

    yankees are trying to buy them$elve$ out of basement.  not going to work.  they are just digging their hole deeper and deeper.  they tell their fanbase that they are going to get back under the luxury tax limit this season.  they very well could end up with their highe$t payroll ever.  and for a .500 team.

    over/under games played for jeter?

    over/under games played for texiera?

    over/under era for CC?

    over/under blown saves by robertson?

    yankees record in 1 run games?

    over/under ops of 2b & 3b?

    8th inning era?

    how old is kuroda?

    mccan bright lights of northeast baseball?

    i guess i should pipe down as you are all correct.  the signing of Tanaka just made the Yankees the 2014 world series champions.  i might as well cancel my subscirption to MLB package and not bother watching the sox this season.
