Red Sox Make Offer to Tazawa

Red Sox Make Offer to Tazawa
One of the teams that has been actively courting 22-year old fireballer Junichi Tazawa is the Boston Red Sox, and, according to Sankei Sports, they have formally extended an offer to him to the tune of $6 million, but the length of the contract and whether it's a Major or Minor League contract is not known.

Craig Shipley, who was instrumental in getting Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Okajima into Red Sox uniforms 2 years ago, declined to comment, keeping with Red Sox team policy.

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.
