He was negotiating a contract with an American team while his Japanese team was still in the playoffs? And he signs it and announces it right before they play in the championship?

What an incredibly ****ty thing to do to all the fans in Japan.

I think the Royals were moving quickly on the deal because he was a dark horse candidate for the Yankees job.

Clearly he likes long vacations and doesn't have much of a stomach for post season play.
