Tanaka is here, it's the biggest stage, we went deep into the playoffs andhave a good core of young talent. He'd be nuts to go anywhere else. 




Yea glad the Dodgers are out of it. It seems this kid wants the big stage. He could have waited and got a bigger payday. Now we could be wrong but it's no comparrison between the Yanks and Rangers.If he wants the big stage there is none bigger then here. With all the good young players, 2nd most money available, no full time DH, Matsui and Tanaka to recruit him the Yanks should get him. Hoping this happens. Scouts love him.




Yank, do you really believe the Yanks willlet him pitch AND play the outfield or DH? I might be wrong but I don't see it. Throw 80 pitches on pitch day then go deep in the corner in left to make a throw to 2nd the next or even 2 days later. I'd be surprised but I've been surprised before I guess




I can't see him hitting when he's pitching, and I don't see him playing in the OF, so, and I say if they let him DH it will only be when he's not pitching and it won't be an everyday thing.. Just my two cents...

 That's exactly how they would use him. Anyone who thinks he would pitch, then play the next 3-4 games as DH/OF, should think again.

I agree. When Otani is pitching that's a chance for the Yankees to give Sanchez a break and let him DH.

I don’t mind Headley hanging around as a vet bench player. If they can trade him that would be ideal though. They better be sure Torres is ready though if they go that route. The only other option is Andujar who is still a butcher at 3B.





Headley's contract is up after next season so maybe the Yankees keep him as a bench player, but they need to upgrade at 3B.

he did it in Japan. Don't see why he will doubt himself if he has already done it. But if I'm the Yankees or any team, I will be concerned about my investment pitching and hitting consistently. His translator in a interview I posted previously pretty much said if a team is not open to it, then he's not open to talk to them.

Why is he a diva ? He excelled at both in Japan and wants to continue doing both. If he wants special drinks in his locker and his own massage therapist I'd call him a diva not for wanting to play.

He also might want to decide if he wants to go to a Team that almost made it to the WS Rangers were nowhere near. Since Tanaka decided to stay with the Yanks Otani might want to follow Tanaka and sign with the Yanks and let's not forget Japan Biggest Hideki Matsui! could be the one that convinces him.

I think the only way he's going to find a team that will cave to him hitting as much as he wants to is a team that's not a contending one.. No team that's in the hunt for the WS, and I mean a legit team, will let him hit, pitch and play like he's on some amateur team playing in some country league... It's just not that way in the US major leagues.. Just my two cents...
