Sorry, no worries, I will stop calling you out on that. But FYI, from someone who has been posting on here for 7+ years with you now, I don't think your comments are registering as humorously as you think they are lately. Normally you add a lot to these comments and a lot of humor, but lately you just sound like a broken, very disgruntled, record...
Remember, the player has to request to be posted, then it's up to the NPB club to agree to post the player (which they do not have to do).
Brett Gardner will be a FA after the 2014 season, so I doubt that the Cubs would give up players with more years of club control than Gardner just to get a one-year (or even half-year) rental... unless the plan is to try and sign him to a multi-year contract (which they have already done with LH OF Ryan Sweeney) or else flip him to a third team at the July Trade Deadline for prospects.

The Cubs should see if Ted Abernathy wants a 2 year deal?
"Astros signed RHP Chad Qualls to a two-year, $9.5 million contract."
"Ben Badler of Baseball America reports that the Rakuten Golden Eagles will speak with Masahiro Tanaka about his desire to move to the MLB, and if he truly wants to do so they are expected to let him leave."
i give humor, you only register angst.
yeah, it's a bit editorial, but it's not a diatribe.
also, doesn't this work both ways in multiple threads for your expressed point of view? we don't have guns here. the first person to fire doesn't win.
Wait, you are unhappy with the Cubs spending? Hadn't heard that before.
i imagine it'd take more than that...plus, they got b.ryan on a 2-year deal as their d.barney equivalent.

Barney and Russell for BG?
could be fun to speculate on this even though I agree we probably don't match up.
they'd probably want a pitcher or 2nd...
doubt the cubs have any pitching to spare for an OF'r.
Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the Yankees are willing to listen to trade offers on Brett Gardner.
They have already received significant interest in Gardner since Friday's signing of Carlos Beltran, and though they aren't actively shopping him, the Yankees outfield is extremely crowded and he could net a useful return. The Bombers currently boast an outfield contingent of Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury, Beltran, Alfonso Soriano, Ichiro Suzuki and Vernon Wells.
