MLB & NPB Officially Announce New Posting System

Major League Baseball and Nippon Professional Baseball have officially announced a new posting system for Japanese players after ratifying the new deal today. This is good for three seasons and eliminates the bidding process. The Japanese team simply named it price, a max of $20 million, and any team willing to meet the posting fee can negotiate with the player. Only the team that signs the player has to pay the posting fee so I don't see a scenario where we shouldn't at least kick the tires.

Masahiro Tanaka watch officially begins now... Tanaka will be posted we just do not know when. Stay tuned.
