2009 Draft: What's in a Name?

by Patrick Newman (Oct 21, 2009)

My draft coverage outside of Yusei Kikuchi has been pretty weak this year, but I have a week to catch up. I'll start by pointing out how awesome Kazuhito Futagami's and Masato Kiyashiki's names are in Japanese.

二神一人 (Futagami Kazuhiro):  "two gods, one person"

鬼屋敷正人 (Kiyashiki Masato):  "demon estate, correct person"

Futagami is a top college pitcher and should be drafted in the first round after the Kikuchi fallout takes place. Kiyashiki is a high school catcher who appears on some teams' high pick list, and could sneak in to the first round as well.
