Maybe Tanaka's had a change of heart about playing in the states..
That would suggest to me maybe the price inflated within the last 24 hours out of the range they thought possible. Would seem on the surface to be a good sign for us.

Can we start the official let down thread too?
Possibly but there are a lot of "wish list" boxes unchecked for Arizona in which "Market Size" probably being most glaring to me.Originally Posted by turnaround3:27846787

I don't get this.
I don't think we've ever really needed a player more than we need Tanaka. He would be a huge piece to this rebuild, a 25yr old ace to anchor the pitching staff of the future. Him combined with the Baez/Bryant super combo plus the rest of our future call-ups could be what puts us at the top of the division and keeps us there for years. Sadly, I do not think we will be signing Tanaka though.
IMO Close is milking it as much as possible to land his client as much money as possible.
Sure Tanaka may take less money from either LAD or NYY however if either organization was close to CHC rumored offer, it would be a done deal already. I'm sure the preference is NY or LA, but money talks.
Milk it out to see if NYY or LAD, who both have history of careless spending, do it one more time.
I'm more scared of LAD than NYY. That gift wrapped Aroid salary relief is just too much for me to overlook for luxury tax implications especially with Aroid back in 2015. Coincidence after all the NYY signings and Aroid relief NYY will be around 180M with the 189M threshold for 2014?
Maybe Tanaka is already in the states getting checked out ? This has been kept so quiet it smells of this front office!
