Sponichi reports that the Chunichi Dragons may be softening their stance on posting Wei-Ying Chen.

Members of the front office met for a meeting at a hotel in Nagoya on Saturday.  The issue of posting Chen may have been brought up as Chunichi Dragons' present Junnosuke Nishikawa said to reporters, "I never said we would never consider posting [Chen].  The biggest thing here is finding out what Chen is thinking.  And what we do about his contract for the 2011 season will hinge on what Chen would like to do."

The Dragons were said to have met with Chen's agent, Alan Nero, on the 16th and was told that a number of MLB clubs were interest in Chen.  Chen is currently scheduled to return to Taiwan on the 24th.  No word on when the Dragons and Chen will meet.
