The way Major League Baseball does business with Japans top professional baseball league may be about to change. According to Fox Sports analyst Ken Rosenthals sources, MLB and Nippon Professional Baseball are "very close" on a new posting system. Rosenthal posted the details of the expected deal on Twitter Thursday morning. To acquire negotiating rights to an eligible Japanese player, MLB teams will still submit a posting bid, but unlike in the past, the new maximum posting fee will be $20 million per player. In the event multiple teams post $20 million, the player would then be allowed to choose his destination amongst those teams that submitted maximum bids. Only the team chosen by the player being posted would then be required to pay the fee to his respective NPB club. If no team posts a maximum bid, the player would go to the highest bidder. Under the current system, teams submit their top bids in secret with the highest bidder getting an exclusive negotiating window to sign the player. The deal comes as MLB teams wait to start bidding on the latest Japanese phenom pitcher, Masahiro Tanaka. The New York Yankees were believed to be the front-runners for Tanaka, since their deep pockets would allow them to submit a high posting bid, while only having Tanakas salary count towards luxury tax. However, under the new system that advantage would no longer play in the Yankees favour. Since only the posting fee is luxury tax-exempt. The change levels the playing field, giving players like Tanaka the ability to choose between whichever clubs deem his services worthy of a maximum bid. MLB expects that once the deal gets completed, Tanaka and others will still be posted. Otherwise, Rosenthal believes, Japanese players might demand earlier free agency. Japanese players are currently eligible for free agency after nine years of NPB service. The highest bid ever submitted by an MLB club for a Japanese free agent came in January of 2012 when the Texas Rangers paid a reported $51.7 million for the right to negotiate with pitcher Yu Darvish. The Rangers and Darvish took almost the full allotted month to reach an agreement, with Darvish settling for a six-year, $60 million contract on the final day of the negotiating window.

A wide-eyed 18-year-old visiting North America for only the second time in his young life, Caboclo immediately noticed the "big tower" his new home is best known for.NATAL, Brazil -- Clint Dempsey scored in the first minute and rookie substitute John Brooks scored a late game winner as the U.S. defeated Ghana 2-1 Monday in the World Cup opener for both. The victory gave the Americans a measure of revenge against the tiny West African county that knocked them out of the previous two World Cups and put the U.S. and Germany on top of the Group G, with Ghana and Portugal at the bottom. Dempseys goal came on a low shot just 32 seconds into the match. Ghana dominated much the rest of the game, and Andre Ayew levelled in the 82nd minute. Just four minutes later, Brooks -- a 21-year-old who came on at halftime because Matt Besler was injured -- scored off a corner from Graham Zusi. It was the first time an American sub had ever scored in the World Cup. Dempseys goal made him the first U.S. player to score in three different World Cups and was the fastest ever scored by an American in the tournament. Dempseys goal showed the kind of technical flair seldom seen from a squad that typically scores through set pieces. Brooks game winner came in the waning minutes as the Americans were desperately trrying to survive waves of attacks from Ghana.dddddddddddd. DaMarcus Beasley, who became the first American to play in four World Cups, started the buildup to Dempseys goal with a pass to Jermaine Jones, who fed it to Dempsey inside the penalty area. With a nifty move to split defenders John Boye and Sulley Muntari, Dempsey sent the left-footed shot past goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey, where the ball bounced off the post and in. Already ahead after the game had barely started, the Americans looked well on their way to erasing eight years of frustration caused by Ghana. Ghana regrouped at halftime and the U.S. looked punchless on the attack after losing striker Jozy Altidore to an apparent hamstring injury in the 21st minute. Ghana applied relentless pressure on U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard and finally drew even when captain Asamoah Gyan flicked a backheel pass to Ayew, who used the outside of his left foot for a powerful shot. Ghana was still pressing for a winner Brooks delivered the header. He appeared shocked to have scored, raising his hands to his head before falling to the ground to be mobbed by his teammates.
