While I Was Away
by Patrick Newman (Jan 16, 2010)
Okay, time to come out of hiatus with my first NPB Tracker post of the year.
Did I miss anyone?
- MLB and NPB are discussing holding a global world series
between the champions from the two leagues. It doesn't seem as close as
initially reported, but I would love to see this happen. More later...
- Having failed to get any NPB offers, former Orix Buffaloe Katsuaki Furuki is moving into the ring and becoming a figher
- Yusei Kikuchi has begun working out for his first pro spring training. And believer or not, he's walking on air
- More jibba-jabba about Yu Darvish going to MLB
- Matt Murton will play center field for Hanshin
Any other big stories over the last few weeks that I didn't include?
