[11/29/2013] NPB planning to resume posting system discussions after a meeting on December 3

An NPB representative was in New York on the 26th and 27th with the hopes of hammering out a deal before the Thanksgiving holiday, but an agreement could not be reached.  The NPB is planning to resume telephone discussions with the MLB once they have had a chance to meet on December 3.  The focus of the meeting will be to get everyone caught up on current negotiations and to round up opinions and suggestions.

One of the proposals submitted by the MLB apparently called for an upper limit on posting bids of about twenty million US dollars.  In return for the limit, posted players would be given the opportunity to negotiate with as many teams that make bids at the upper limit.
