I'm not so sure about the "trying to stay under $189". I know they've stated that, but it sure doesn't seem like that's really a factor.
I rest my case.

Tanaka will post next week.
According to Li'l Kenny Rosenthal, but Dylan Hernandez and others are very much disputing that translation of the Rakuten's president's comments (which were the basis of Rosenthal's report). Basically, where it looks like we're at is that Rakuten will try to convince Tanaka to stay long-term, and if he can't be convinced of that, they're going to decide whether they have a fiduciary responsible to post him now vs. trying to post him next season vs. keeping him for two seasons and risking free agency.
