Strange trend with Japanese players not reaching deals in MLB. Last year Iwakuma, now maybe Nakajima. If his dream is really to play in MLB, I think he should just take what he can get for a 1-year deal and try to prove himself. With the Yankees' aged infield, there's always a chance for playing time, so just go for it instead of trying to cash in on a MLB deal. With the recent performance of Japanese hitters in MLB, players have to understand that the fat contracts for unproven Japanese talent (Darvish being an exception) are a thing of the past.
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.
