Kobayashi is scheduled to meet with the front office on the 10th.

Sports Hochi and Sponchi both mention that Hiroyuki Kobayashi may be leaning towards exercising his international FA option in order to pursue his dreams of playing in the Majors (they quote unnamed baseball sources).  After Sunday's deciding game 7 of the Nippon Series, Kobayashi told reporters that he still wasn't sure what he wanted to do and needed some time to think.

If Kobayashi opts to exercise his international FA option, Lotte is not expected to try and persuade him to stay.
