Saburo Does a 180

by Patrick Newman (Nov 10, 2008)

Sponichi and Nikkan Sports are both reporting that Saburo has changed his mind and will remain with the Chiba Lotte Marines for at least another year. Sponichi quotes Saburo as saying "the direction is decided but it's not 100%. It might change. I'll decide within 2 or 3 days."  Sponichi reports that Saburo has a two year, ¥200M ($2M) offer in hand from the Marines and the two papers are in agreement that this could be wrapped up by the 11th. According to Nikkan Sports, Saburo wants to avenge his team's 4th place finish, but I still wonder why we're seeing this reversal. I'm sure we'll learn more in the next few days.
