Um, I don't really think the Cubs need anymore starters at this point, and most certainly none in the age bracket that Takahashi is in.

I seriously don't know why the Cubs didn't go after Saito instead if they are indeed looking for more Japanese players as I've heard.

I personally compare Takahashi to what Shingo Takatsu was a couple of years back for the White Sox. He had 2 good years or so but after that he was done. I see Takahashi being more or less the same as Shingo was.
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.
