New Japanese posting rules- Tanaka can negotiate with any team

New Japanese posting rules- Tanaka can negotiate with any team

Any team that pays the $20 million fee can negotiate with Tanaka. So we get to bid against the Dodgers, Yankees, Sox, Rangers, whoever....


So much for fairness.... MLB just wants the big market teams to win consistently. What a joke.

Actually, I think the kickback is to Japanese owners. MLB is their patsy on this one.

In an interview with Duquette from Roch Kubotka, Duquette said the Orioles will not be involved with the posting system.

Why would you want to pursue the next Yu Darvish when we can sign Wada for nothing. Wada was a huge success for the Orioles.......Another cheap excuse.
