Cubs May 'Blow Away' Rivals To Land Tanaka

Maybe the new mascot (the ever-so-cuddly Clark The Cub) is just a smokescreen. Following up on earlier reports,'s Jayson Stark is now reporting that several MLB owners are convinced that Theo Epstein will "blow away" the field and sign Japanese hurler Masahiro Tanaka to a "monster deal". There are other reports that Tanaka's wife would prefer a west coast landing spot—but it looks like the biggest offers may come from Gotham and the Wind City. Stay tuned, sports fans.
