Sports Hochi: Yu Darvish could decide on posting some time this week

Sports Hochi is reporting that Yu Darvish (25) could ask the Nippon Ham Fighters to post him as early as some time later this week (likely after the Winter Meetings).  And depending on the conditions (salary, bonus, planned usage) could opt to return to the Fighters next year -- Arn Tellem and Darvish have apparently that if they can not get an offer that is considered "appropriate for Japan's Ace," they will simply withdraw from negotiations and Darvish will return to Japan in 2012.  It is possible Darvish could be seeking at least US$8M a year.
