Masahiro Tanaka could be on his way to LA

Published Add your comment

The story of Masahiro Tanaka and where he will move rumbles on, but now we have another bizarre piece of information that may tip us off to his whereabouts come the start of the season - his wife's preferences. 

Actually, this might not be the craziest of tips offs ever. I suppose the question is, who wears the pants in the relationship? 

Tanaka had a ridiculously good season last year in the Nippon Professional Baseball League for the Rakuten Golden Eagles, with an impressive unbeaten year of 24 wins.

Since it was announced he would be available for MLB bidding, somewhat of a frenzy has begun, with Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees currently favorites.  

If the question is West Coast or East Coast? We may have our answer according to @DavidWaldstein

"Consensus in Japan right now is that Yankees and Dodgers are favorites on Tanaka and word is his wife prefers to be on West Coast."

Who knows, if it really does come down to either the Dodgers or the Yankees, maybe Mrs Tanaka will make the all important decision for Tanaka to become a Dodger. 

Will Tanaka follower the money or go to the destination his wife wants? Only time will tell.
