Hanshin to Re-Double Efforts to Land Kawakami

by Patrick Newman (Dec 1, 2008)

Daily Sports is reporting that Hanshin is set to boost it's efforts to acquire Kenshin Kawakami after failing to entice Daisuke Miura to leave Yokohama. The figure thrown out in this article is 4 years/ ¥2bn ($20m), but I don't know how seriously I take that number.

Hanshin, if you're listening, the time to act is now. As of this weekend, Kawakami didn't have any offers in hand, and he's unlikely to get much MLB until the frontline guys sign. Go in and offer him $6.5-7m/year and give him something to think about.
