FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: YANKS "WON'T BE DENIED" ON MASAHIRO TANAKA

                                          

After it was finally revealed that the Rakuten Golden Eagles would post star Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, a source close to the team revealed that the New York Yankees "won't be denied" in signing the talented righty.  While the Yankees are expected to get stiff competition from the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago Cubs, the source said the team has prepared all offseason to "give the farm" to Tanaka.

Analysis:  This should be fun to watch.  With the posting fee now capped at $20 million, there will be a lot more clubs involved in the bidding on the outset.  However the eventually $100 million-plus price tag will likely keep this a battle between the usual big market teams along with the Arizona Diamondbacks who have expressed interest all along.
