M’s in on Tazawa bidding
If you were hoping the M’s might shore up the rotation by signing Junichi Tazawa, check this out. MLB.com:
Hideaki Okubo, manager of the Nippon Oil team that Tazawa pitches for, said the Braves, Red Sox and Mariners are also involved. Okubo said the Rangers have made the largest offer to Tazawa.
Those crazy M’s. Are they hell-bent on exacerbating the clubhouse split between Japanese players and everyone else? After all their terrible experiences last year, and of everyone they have the best knowledge of what actually occurred, it makes no sense that they’d actively go into a rebuilding year signing — wait, wait, wait. What if the M’s know as much about this as anyone and thought the whole thing was overblown and not worth missing out on a good player over?
