And a team does not have to pay the posting fee unless they sign the player.

I don't know if the Sox will sign Tanaka but I am pretty confident that it won't be the posting fee that stops them if they don't sign him.
Appreciate the clarification. Take the gamble, Sox! I'll be shocked, maybe the most since the Belle signing (well, except for the WS, of course!), if that happens.
