German Esteban?

Discussion in the Ask the Commish forum
German Esteban?
I was wondering, why did Seibu let German Esteban go to Orix? German had 2 good seasons with Seibu. Can someone explain to me why he left? Thanks.

German wanted a two-year contract, and Seibu refused. So he moved on to Orix, and Orix in turn parted ways with Aarom Baldiris, who moved on to the Baystars.

Had been wondering the same thing myself. Hanshin should have tried to get Baldiris back, as he has shown when he got the chance with Orix that he can perform. But without more playing time for little brother at 3rd, Arai would turn even more mopey and underperform.

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.
