Yakult Acquires Aikawa
The Tokyo Yakult Swallows have signed catcher Ryouji Aikawa to a 3 year deal worth 450 million yen. Aikawa was purusing a major league deal, but interest was light for him.

Wow, that didn't take long at all. Hopefully Aikawa has a good run with Yakult and I wish him nothing but the best.

Now, I hope that Yokohama can get a decent player (pitcher preferred) in return for Aikawa.
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.
