The December 26th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Tanaka to be posted, 10 questions facing the Angels and much more...
The Story: Masahiro Tanaka is being posted today.
The Monkey Says: The saga finally comes to an end with Tanaka getting his wish. Now teams have until 5 PM on January 24th to sign him. He may very well use up all of that time as he will have several suitors that can be played off of each other. For what it is worth, Tanaka hired Casey Close, who also represents Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, as his agent. That seems like it would give the Dodgers an edge. On the bright side, this should finally open up the pitching market logjam so that Matt Garza can get signed in the next few weeks. Getting Garza seems like a much more likely path for the Halos at this point.
The Monkey Says: Noted moron Jim Bowden lists the Angels at second despite having to just dismiss their luxury tax concerns because, well, he wants to dismiss those concerns. He then somehow leaves the Cubs off the list, despite them widely being considered amongst the favorites to land Tanaka. So, take this with an entire mine of salt.
