The current phase of the Yu Darvish posting saga has predictability opened with a round of "no comments". Here's what Nippon Ham Fighters representative Toshimasa Shimada said to the Japanese media:
"We don't have anything we can talk about yet. The outlook for a decision? I think we want to make a decision within the extent of the rules"
When asked about what Nippon Ham would base an acceptance on, Shimada reponded,
"Starting now, we're considering our options, including that."
And that was all.
