Buffaloes meet with Mitsutaka Goto for 5 minutes

The Orix Buffaloes apparently met with Mitsutaka Goto on Sunday for their first round of negotiations.  But it seems their meeting only last 5 minutes, pointing to the possibility that there was a fairly large gap separating the two sides.

While neither side would go into details about what was discussed, club GM Yoshio Murayama did tell reporters that he was able to tell Goto how important he was to the team and that he would continue to push that point in future meetings.

Incidentally, the Nikkan Sports article I've linked to also mentions that Goto didn't have a very satisfied look on his face when reporters questioned him about the meeting.
