I wonder then if the lockout continues that long if Suzuki isn't going to just sign on for one more year in Japan rather than wait in limbo for MLB to start back up.   There's always a chance he doesn't sign with any team in his 20 day window, and I bet he would rather know that before Japan's spring training starts rather than after.




He's a star player, even if he can't get signed by MLB his old team would gladly sign him for another year.




But when?   Does he want to miss spring training in Japan and possibly months of their season waiting for the MLB lockout to end?




When does baseball season start in Japan? I think waiting another month or 2 should be fine for him.

Their spring training starts Feb 1, so if he wants to be in his normal routine he has under a month now.

He might feel it's worth the gamble to see if mlb and the union can come to an agreement, I know if I were in his shoes I would wait it out until March.

Matsui was slightly better but Suzuki does have the speed element to his game though so he makes up for it in that department though the Yankees rarely steal bags so not sure how much of a factor that'll be.

"As noted by The New York Times’ Brad Lefton, February 1 could serve as something of a deadline for Suzuki, since Japanese teams begin their Spring Training on that date.  It is extremely rare for Japanese players to miss any of their training camps for reasons other than injury, so Suzuki could need to decide between NPB or MLB by late January."
