Bobby V. Sending Out Feelers to MLB

If this is true, then I'm very disappointed in Bobby V. And no matter what he says about being happy and content managing in Japan, it's obvious that he's itching to get back to the major leagues.

Considering that he mailed it in this season, I don't think Marines fans will be too disappointed to see him leave.

I'll take Bobby at his word when he says that he's happy here in Japan. 3 sentences or so with vague references in some little unknown newspaper is not enough to sway me. Seems to me like someone is stirring the pot.

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.
