Kawakami Stays Quiet

by Patrick Newman (Jan 9, 2009)

Word on the street is that Kenshin Kawakami is nearing a deal with the Braves.  For his part, Kenshin is staying quiet. Nikkan Sports has this comment from the pitcher: "Basically I can't say anything. In the end it is me that will decide, but I don't want to disrupt the people who are negotiating."

While we wait for a resolution, let's enjoy this footage from Kawakami's last regular season appearance in 2008, a start in which he held the Yokohama BayStars scoreless over six innings. (English box score courtesty of JapaneseBaseball.com).

To go with that, here's a highlight reel spanning the course of Kawakami's career, and the last out of his 2002 no-hitter.
