MLB & NPB To Ratify New Posting Policy On Monday

Does this mean Masahiro Tanaka will be posted on Tuesday? Obviously that is severely jumping the gun as I wouldn't expect him to be posted the very next day but that definitely opens the door for the posting.

The Japanese team posting the player will be able to publicly "name their price" on the posting fee as long as it does not exceed the $20 million cap.  All teams that meet that asking price will be allowed to negotiate with the player and the player, in this case Tanaka, will get to choose who to exclusively negotiate with from that pool of teams. This new deal absolutely gives the power back to the player and cuts down the cost of the posting fee significantly.

I like the new deal now let's get this show on the road.
