Masahiro Tanaka arrives in style

I’m a baseball fan and cheer for the Rays (I live in Tampa, duh) but one of the AL East rivals, the New York Yankees, added a new pitcher this off-season and he is arriving in style.  Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka, who went 24-0 last year, signed with the Yankees for $155 million dollars (that’s a lot of Yen).  For his flight to the United States, he decided to buy out a 787 to make the 15 + hour trip to the states (Check here for the story). Yep, for $195, 000, Tanaka bought out the plan from Japan Airlines for himself, 5 guests, and his poodle, to make the trip.  When you are making the cash he is, I guess you can rent your own massive plane.
