A little more on Hideaki Wakui’s salary arbitration

by on Jan.22, 2011 @ 3:48 pm, under NPB

Nikkan Sports' latest report mentions that:

...the meeting lasted over 90 minutes.

...the Lions are sticking to their 200M yen offer (no change over last season).

...Hideaki Wakui could be looking for a salary of around 220 to 230M yen.

...GM Kosuke Maeda is representing the Seibu Lions (this was actually mentioned in reports last night, but I failed to mention it).

...Maeda explained how the Lions arrived at the 200M yen amount (an explanation of their assessment system).

...Tsuneo Horiuchi (one of the arbitrators) told reporters that he could understand where Wakui was coming from (via Sanspo).
