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.

Agree.  Don't think there is any reason why the Cubs wouldn't have a fair chance to compete for Senga, *if* they want him.  But as you say, do they?  And *if* they both want him and pay what it take to get him, will that scouting be vindicated?  Who knows.
