    I was just reading up on my free agency rules to write an article on our site. Won’t the Giants owe the Swallows less than the 60%/40%+player for firt time free agents (specifically 30% or 20%+player) since Aikawa is a two-time free agent.

    My only source is the Japanese Wikipedia article on Free Agency, but I’m not completely confident on my interpretation of the Japanese. Can you confirm that my interpretation makes sense.
