Tuffy Rhodes to stay with the Buffaloes?

The Buffaloes continue to negotiate with Tuffy Rhodes and it now appears as though there might be some hope of him staying with the team.

Orix was originally looking to drop Rhodes' salary by as much as 100M yen but it now appears as though they are backing off that figure and are now talking about a 70M yen drop, which would put the Buffaloes' contract offer at 250M yen.

According to the report, it also seems as though the Seibu Lions are backing away from Rhodes now as well.  Whether or not that's because they now think Rhodes will stay with the Buffaloes or because they are no longer interested in him, is not mentioned.
