A Sanspo report mentions a meeting could take place as early as Monday.  And if Okajima is ok with a salary of around 100M yen, the Tigers may push forward with plans to offer him a deal.

Nikkan Sports reports that the Hanshin Tigers have dropped hints that they might be meeting with Hideki Okajima at some point in the near future.  The report also mentions that they are still interested in Hiroyuki Kobayashi, that if they had a choice they opt for Okajima because he was left-handed, and that money could be a factor (they aren't going to get into a bidding war).
