Masahiro Tanaka To Be Posted Today

There is no going back and changing their minds this time for the Rakuten Golden Eagles as Masahiro Tanaka will be posted sometimes today. That gives teams until January,24 2014 to pony up the $20 million and exclusively negotiate with Tanaka.

Tanaka has hired agent Casey Close, agent of Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira, to be his man to talk with teams. That's a great sign since he has such a relationship with the Yankees organization as a whole. The Cubs, Angels, and Diamondbacks appear to be New York's  stiffest competition for the 25 year old right hander but I fully expect teams like the Texas Rangers and New York Mets to at least be in the discussion.

People have been asking me on Twitter and such what I think about Tanaka and two words come to mind, all in!
