According to Nikkan Sports, it seems the Oakland A's might be able to announce a deal with Hisashi Iwakuma before the end of the month (although they don't really have any solid evidence to back that time frame up, other than A's saying they wanted to get something done as soon as possible).  Sanspo adds that the A's have only contacted Iwakuma through his agent via e-mail so far but plan on meeting them face-to-face now that the winter meetings are over.
