Turnin' Japanese:
The Phillies needed some lefties, so Ruben Amaro Jr. landed some lefties...from across the sea. Japanese pitchers Shigetoshi Yamakita and Naoyo Okamoto have been signed to minor league contracts. Both were in Japan's minor league system and don't seem to be all that great. So as far as them having an impact on the Phillies, I doubt it, but at least we'll have a helluva time trying to pronounce their names.

So for 1.5 million. the same amount we gave to contreras...we could have had Erik Bedard in the rotation???

WTF Rube. You want low risk high reward...that's pretty F'in good.

Rediculous.....i should be a GM!

SirAlden said...

Aaron, the contract is 1.5 minimum,
it goes up to 7.75 million based on
innings and starts.

GM-Carson said...

Bedard won't be ready until probably June-ish, and he has many escalating incentives in the deal.

Aaron said...

Never mind that's too much $$ in incentives. I'm back on the Rube bandwagon.
