BREAKING: Tanaka to #Yankees, seven years, $155M, opt-out after fourth year.

Finally, for the love of God the Masahiro Tanaka sweepstakes is finally over.
And what felt like an eternity ends up being well worth the wait, as Tanaka is officially a New York Yankee.
Admittedly, I had my doubts whether Tanaka would come the Yankees over the Los Angeles Dodgers, and if Hal Steinbrenner would really blow past his $189 million goal but both did. And Tanaka is going to be a New York Yankee for the next seven seasons for the price of $155 million, but he does have a fourth-year opt out clause for when he is more Igawa then Darvish, maybe?
Nonetheless, the only thing left to say is…..
…….at least for now!
