As a Phillies fan, I'm delighted to see Taguchi will be in Philadelphia. He can play all three outfield positions and he's shown he can hit Billy Wagner! Also, I'm eager to see Fukudome when the Cubs come to town. From everything I've been reading the last few years and seen on YouTube, the guy is a legit five-tool player. I wish I could have been in Nagoya to see him and Ochoa in the same outfield. I've been an Alex Ochoa fan since I saw him against the Reading Phillies in AA back in 1994.

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.
