    If the west coast rumors are true, the mariners will be tough to beat. I have the dodgers right there and the angels a lot closer than 10, they want and need him also.

    As a Cub fan, I think they will make a strong push for him. The one team that really scares me is the Mariners with such a strong Japanese market out there and with Ichiro's history there.

    New Tanaka news:

    John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that Tanaka's initial preferred cities are Los Angeles, New York and Boston

    Interesting considering so many place had the M's were number 1. Boston isn't likely to be in the running and I would assume that by saying LA the Dodgers are more likely than the Angels.

    So it looks like its the Dodgers and Yankees at this point (which could change at a moments notice).

    Is this guy more Yu Darvish or Hideki Irabu? From what I've read about him it doesn't seem like he should be worth what everyone's making him out to be.

    He's not quite as good as Darvish but definitely better than Irabu.

    But everybody laughed at me when I mentioned Seattle in an earlier Thread!

    and to [MENTION=9603]corockies[/MENTION], the talent is there and he's almost MUCH younger than most Japanese pitchers when they migrate over, which adds to his value...
