Yes, and there are usually a few teams willing to spend incredibly on the possibility. Has Cleveland ever won a posting for a Japanese player?
Well we did sign Kobayashi when he was a free agent, but we have never tried to win a posting either...
Guardians need to make a splash in year one since we have to try and move the fan base away from "Dolan is cheap"... I doubt it would work, but giving extensions to players and posting Suzuki/signing a big name player, actually wouldn't be a bad idea to combat that. I mean we arent going to go get Bryant, but making a solid splash and gambling a bit is something we have to do once in awhile in my mind.
If I said we could get a .800 OPS player at age 26/27 for 65 over 5 years, I think no one would say no to that. I have a hunch he will play about that if he stays within himself and doesn't try to much...
