Minami, Sakai, Mayumi, and GM Shoji Numasawa all met for a meeting yesterday to talk about the upcoming draft. It seems they may have also touched upon Mayumi staying on for the 2011 season (although an official decision / proposal won't be made until after the season).
Tigers' owner Shinya Sakai told reporters on Sunday that the team is leaning towards keeping Akinobu Mayumi on as manager for the 2011 season. Sakai also said that while the details had yet to be worked out and discussed, it only made sense to keep Mayumi on board for at least another year.
Sakai, club president Nobuo Minami, and Mayumi were all scheduled to meet for dinner on Sunday night.
