Hanshin Tigers GM Katsuhiro Nakamura has told the media that the Tigers' offer to Nishioka needs to go above what other teams have proposed.  They are expected to go above the Buffaloes' two-year deal at 400M yen.  They will also probably offer him the number seven, provide him with whatever support he needs in his move to the Kansai area, and should be able to offer him either short (if Takashi Toritani leaves) or second.  Source: Daily Sports 11/8/2012
