Johjima’s press conference
“I’m still a free agent.” — summary
Pic here and also from reader Toshio, this more-detailed summary:
1. Johjima said clearly that he will chose the team based on living environment for his family. Then, he said his wife “really liked Seattle”.
2. Johjima will visit only one more city in this trip (I guess that
would be NY).
3. Johjima’s agent said the M’s are only the team that has made an offer so far, and that the offer is better than his current one in Japan (500 million Yens / year: $1 is 100-120 Yen, I think. So that would make $4.2-4.5 mil / yr).
