Uehara Watch

A quick note to those of you depressed, disappointed, or disgusted about the Red Sox insane bid for Daisuke Matsuzaka. I have started project #2 in my efforts to bring a top Japanese pitcher to the Yankees. That pitcher is Koji Uehara of the Yomiuri Giants.

Uehara is Japan's other ace. He is Greg Maddux to Matsuzaka's Pedro Martinez. Uehara is not the otherworldly talent that is Matsuzaka, but he is a top caliber starter that will come to the US in the 2007 offseason as a FREE AGENT. While there may be a number of teams ready to pay him big money, I would argue that the Yankees have the best shot. His former teammate is Hideki Matsui, and the Yankees have a working relationship with the people at Yomiuri. If you don't believe me look at our outfield wall and see for yourself. I won't use much space at the Canyon to hype him, but I'll let you know when there's a new piece at Uehara Watch. It's making it's debut, and you can check in to see what I've got cooking today.

Help is on the way next year!

I've read about him for over a year and have him on my fantasy baseball reserve roster for an A.L. only ultra league. I have heard the White Sox are following him as well. I was upset he wasn't posted this off season (equally upset I hadn't reserved Matsuzaka as well), and a little surprised that the Japanese Giants are passing up all those millions to let him go next year and recieve nothing.
