What if they don't want us?  Great question.  Lester, of course, had a special relationship with Theo.  Others?  We overpay...Heyward, for example.  What do our coveted players see?  A team that came in second in most competitions, and who didn't try too hard to keep its super stars.  Or we trade them, Yu.  Our FA record is not impressive.

I think if the Cubs want Senga, they’ll get him.  They’re known here, have some history with Japanese players, Seiya being there doesn’t hurt.  Most importantly even if they have to “overpay” to get him, an overpay on Senga is the sort of overpay PTR could live with.  On Rodon, not so much.

The question is, do they want him?  Who knows what their scouting says - other than someone like Ohtani or Yu, no Japanese player coming over is a sure thing to begin with.
