Well, it looks like there’s going to be one more free agent in the 2013 market.
According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, it seems likely that Masahiro Tanaka will be posted by the Rakuten Golden Eagles. The Tanaka saga had been going on since the beginning of the offseason with a “will he be posted/will he not be posted” story coming out every other week.
If Tanaka is finally posted, you can fully expect the Yankees to be all in on Tanaka. The Yankees need a pitcher in the rotation, and Tanaka looks to be the perfect fit.
Now, many teams are going to be in on Tanaka, so let the Tanaka Games begin; and Major League Baseball…may the odds ever be in your favor (sorry, Hunger Games reference…I had to do it).
