I may be totally wrong but I really could see the Japanese league raise a fuss over this.
Well if Japan stops the posting system, then all their high end talent will bypass the Japeneese league.. They will sign with American clubs, and then possibly come back home after they've washed out of MLB..
The posting system is very profitable for Japaneese clubs.. I doubt they would ever get rid of it.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
