Igawa Contract almost done

NY Times

...also said that the Yankees were close to completing a five- year, $20 million contract with the Japanese pitcher Kei Igawa. The deal is likely to be completed tomorrow and is pending a physical. The Yankees won the bid to negotiate with Igawa, who has pitched in Japan for eight seasons, on Nov. 28 and have 30 days to negotiate a contract with him.

The Melky deal is definitely in the works since, the Times, the Post and Newsday are all reporting on it. How did The Daily News get shut out of this story? Is anybody excited by Igawa's deal? Anybody?...
