Okajima Prioritizes Comfort, Security

by Patrick Newman (Nov 30, 2009)

Hideki Okajima needs to work out a deal with Boston for the remainder of his arbitration-eligible years, and he's got a couple of basic requests. "I requested to my agent that I'd like a personal translator to be brought in," said Okajima in Sponichi, adding, "more than money (salary), I want to play baseball in America even a year longer." Oki isn't a free agent, but all indications are that he would have wanted to return to Boston anyway, and it seems that he has reasonable priorities for this series of negotiations.
