Masahiro Tanaka Finally Posted
Here’s the good stuff. This is why I think the Mariners are not done spending. I think they are in on Tanaka. I think they have a great chance of signing him and I think even if they lose out on him, this allows the other free agent chips – Matt Garza, Ubaldo Jimenez, Ervin Santana – to start falling and the M’s will get one of them.
Even New York writers think the Mariners will make a go for Tanaka.
Many here expecting Yankees vs. Mariners Round 2 in Tanaka chase. Hard to see the Yankees losing to M's twice this offseason.

With the Dodgers, Yankees and Twins among the teams thought to be in on Tanaka, this process could take us right up to the January 24th deadline.
