Found the following interesting:

I'm sure it will eventually be put back together without the fee impacting the luxury tax but its always fun to read about tensions between the "haves" and "have nots".

Also, if they get the offer put back together, maybe it puts a little more pressure on the Japanese to act quickly.

Let's see, if the posting fee for Tanaka ends up being $75M, and the Twins sign a bunch of free agents to get their budget up to $115M, they could wind up paying a luxury tax. Hey, a guy can dream, right?
