This Friday is the deadline for Masahiro Tanaka to make his decision on his employer for 2014. There are five or 6 teams in contention (reportedly) with the Dodgers being the front runners. Arizona, the Cubs, the Yankees, Seattle and possibly the White Sox have made or are making an offer to him. He wants to live on the west coast and his wife is a wannabe pop star so you would think that all signs point to him signing with the Dodgers. Although the Cubs are offering the most money. It sucks that 2 of the 5 (or 6) teams interested are from our division.
Whoever gets him will be significantly upgrading their rotation.
Dead zone. Think I might go scour around for a new BBOTD to perk me up.
