Toshiya Sugiuchi met with the Softbank Hawks earlier today (with his agent, although other reports are saying he sent his agent in for the negotiations) and was offered somewhere between 350-370M yen (up 70M yen) for the 2011 season.  Sugiuchi put the offer on hold and later told reporters the wasn't satisfied with the Hawks' offer.

Sugiuchi was apparently quite upset and said he didn't even feeling like talking to the team anymore.  Seems it wasn't just about the actual offer itself, but also with the new system the Hawks are using.
