Kapler Picked up by Brewers
Former Yomiuri Giant Gabe Kaplan has come out of retirement to play outfield for the Brewers for one year at $800k.

Last year, according to Yahoo! Sports, he was a coach in the Red Sox farm league organization.

Here is a guy who was totally miserable in Japan and now hasn't played for a year. I thought he'd get a non-roster invite when he said (in October) that he wanted to play again. But a guaranteed contract? Well, who am I to say the Brewers don't know what they are doing off of the way they improved last year?

Now, if the Orioles had signed Kapler, I'd know the guy is finished.

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.
