Hideaki Wakui met with the Seibu Lions earlier today at Seibu Dome and was offered a 2011 salary of 200M yen (same as this year).  Wakui put the offer on hold and later told reporters that he was thinking of a different number.  While Wakui didn't have an awful season this year, 14-8 with a 3.67 ERA and 154 strikeouts in 27 starts (196.1 innings), it was a drop off from 2009 when he went 16-6 with a 2.30 ERA and 199 strikeouts in 27 starts (211.2 innings).
