    White Sox made formal offer to Masahiro Tanaka. SIGNS w/YANKEES

    Guess not thread-worthy of it's own and left to be buried in general off-season talk...

    Its ok we can leave it by itself and just simply talk Tanaka in this thread. His decision has to come this week by Friday.

    I'm guessing it comes tomorrow or Wed. Need a few days to finalize the deal and probably do one other physical.

    Most have said that he will make a decision earlier than Friday. I, for one, will be shocked we get him.

    I'll be shocked if he signs with the Sox but I'm glad to see the Sox making the effort. At least I know they aren't afraid to add payroll

    Maybe that is part of the deal.

    KW and RH must've shown Jerry some pretty good attendance projections if we were to add Tanaka, hence why we are 1 of 5 teams in it. Maybe we saw a good bump in attendance when Shingo or Iguchi came over, and they think Tanaka will help pay for part of his contract himself with the increase in attendance, merchandise sales, etc.

    Only realistic thing I can think of as to why we are offering a SP what is likely 20mil annually and for at minimum 6 years based off our history.

    Plus the fact of adding a 25 year old potential ace to go with Sale and Quintana at the top of the rotation. They would all be around the same age and have control for a long time with hopefully E. Johnson showing he is an above average pitcher.

    Man it would be so nice to have that rotation.

    I do think its a longshot that he chooses us. Having the Cubs in the running hurts us a lot I think.

    On a side note, if we miraculously get him, I can't wait for all the Cub/Yankee/Dodger/Dback(if there are any) fans to start blasting the signing calling it a waste and an overpay.

    It would be great to see all the other teams' fans **** on the Sox and the signing out of jealousy. But I don't think it happens.
