FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: DODGERS THE EARLY FAVORITES TO LAND MASAHIRO TANAKA

                                                     

According to a report from the New York Times, the Los Angeles Dodgers are now the front-runners to sign Japanese free agent SP Masahiro Tanaka.  Tanaka's wife reportedly wants to live on the West Coast which would put the couple a shorter plane ride back home to Japan.  The Los Angeles Angels, Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, and Arizona Diamondbacks are all heavily involved in the sweepstakes. 

Analysis:  The Yankees were originally said to be the favorites but the recent signs suggest otherwise.  If it came down to money, the Yankees are better prepared to go into a bidding war now that Alex Rodriguez and $25 million of his salary will come off the books for next season due to his PED suspension.  This is a fluid situation though and things could change quickly.  Stay tuned.
