Looks like Nori's turning into a bit of a hippari-dako! And why not? He's certainly one of the top performers here, although I notice that he missed out on the top RBIs this season (only just, though).

Other posters have said that Nori won't go to MLB because of the pay cut, or whatever, and westbaystars-san says that Yokohama needs him. I just hope he acts like a good Osaka boy and joins Hanshin!

Having said that, though, it was reported in SanSpo the other day that the incessant rumours that Hanshin were after him were starting to annoy Kintetsu's owner, which is perhaps why Hanshin's Kuma-owner made a statement that he wouldn't make any more statements regarding the Nakamura situation. Go figure .
About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
