Tanaka Decision Could Come Tuesday Or Wednesday

According to David Kaplan on Twitter Masahiro Tanaka could make his decision on Tuesday or Wednesday before the Friday deadline. Additional medicals need to happen, including a physical I assume, and all this has to be done before Friday. I wish it could just come today and not leave us in any more suspense but hey, can't have it both ways. By the way the tweet above is a two part tweet and below is the first part so you know who the "he" is when being referred to in the first tweet.


  1. IMO the Cubs would need to offer at least 20 million more for Tanaka to consider them. Again its just my opinion

  2. I gotta tell you guys: I am scared as hell right now. I have no idea what to expect. In the past few years, the Yankees never seem to be able to acquire pitchers when a bunch of other teams are interested, so I'm currently doubting that they'll pick this guy up.

  3. I am inclined to agree. I don't think Tanaka is necessarily chasing the money as much as he is chasing the fame. He gets that in New York, not so much in Chicago.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
