It's essentially up to Otani where he signs. Several teams will post the $20 Million for a chance to negotiate with him. The only other teams that I would have worried about would have been the Dodgers but they only have $300,000 to offer, same for the Astros. NY should be an easy choice for Otani. 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 think they do New . If they feel he can do both well I see it. I think the Yanks have to give him the option to sign him.I think its a huge draw also, what better team then the Yanks to have the Japanese Babe Ruth.. He wont cost much so it's not like they are paying him 20 mil per and have to worry about this huge investment.. I don't think he plays the field, just DH and probably just against some righties. It wont be everyday . When he pitches he wont hit, other days they will use other DH's. If he doesnt do well at both then they can go to what he's best at. From the scouting reports he's an athlete , he can run so it's not like he's another Wong getting hurt on the bases.

lol how did you base that conclusion? According to him and the rangers, they have a lot to offer. He almost signed with the Rangers when he was 18 due to the fact they were willing to let him do both. He's losing a ton of money to sign this year, but if he signs with the dodgers he would practically make nothing in his contract. Which it would definitely not happen since dodgers only have 300k.

"when he was 18"... That doesn't mean anything now that he's 24. They finished 6 games under .500 and their farm system is not very good either, what kind of future would you have?. He wants to win that has been said pretty much everywhere, no team in baseball that has been tied to him offers him that more than the Yankees and Dodgers, and they can offer him a whole lot more than the Rangers can in terms of winning, core to build with, japanese markets, endorsements, etc. I'll eat my hat if he's a Ranger.

He's 23. Go google his interview, he doesn't care about money or "winning team", his first take is letting him hit and pitch. He wont even talk to a team if they are not interested in that. No offense, but your logic is strictly opinion, no facts. Thats why he has always been intrigue with the rangers. All said and done, I want the Yankees to get him.

I share that same concern.


However, if he were to pitch in relief, rather than start and throw "80 pitches on pitch day", then I think that would be a different story.

Beat me to it. I've always puzzled over "Nippon Ham Fighters". I imagine two pork roasts in biplanes in a dogfight.

I read the article. I missed where he said anything about the Rangers but he will go to a team that lets him hit and pitch. Hopefully the Yanks don't mess this up.
