Yomiuri Giants' chairman Tsuneo Watanabe spoke to reporters on Tuesday about the status of the next NPB commissioner and said that eight NPB teams now had a mutual understanding.  He added that the problem was not due to a difference of opinion between the Central League (CL) and Pacific League (PL), but rather a fragmentation of opinion within the PL.  He also said that a final candidate will likely be decided by January and perhaps even before the end of the year if interim commissioner Yoshihiko Miyauchi pushed harder to get things done.
