Softbank Hawks' official Itaru Kobayashi told reporters on Monday that the team will likely meet with Toshiya Sugiuchi's agent on 12/14.  The Hawks have not given up on Sugiuchi and are not only planning to offer him more money (from four years, 1.6B yen to four years 2B yen), but are also thinking about re-structuring their salary assessment system.

Whether or not it is too little, too late for the Hawks could be revealed this week as Sugiuchi is also slated to meet with the Yomiuri Giants again on 12/16.
