This morning I have been trying to figure out if Tanaka's team could make more money next year by not posting him. Most fans see baseball teams as working to win championships but it is a business. It has always been designed to win money. Theoretically, signing guys brings in money for a team. So, the question I have is is Tanaka worth more than his posting fee would be? I'm guessing they set the postinf where it because the answer is no but does anyone have idea of revenue in Japan?
Any ideas would be great.
