Jonny Dub will be real happy about getting more Japanese players on the team. I bet Jonny is checking him out on the internet right now. Not to see his stats, but to see if he's cute. Don't worry Jonny he's cute.
Maybe they could both get signed to the Corky's Pest Control Commercials.
Today, the Padres expect to pick up Otsuka's club option, guaranteeing the right-hander a $1.75 million salary, more than twice his wage in 2005.
I still find it unbelievable that they are trying to shop Nady. He hit more home runs than Castilla in less AB's. Yet they think Castilla has power and Nady is tradeable?
Still, even after Towers publicly implored manager Bruce Bochy to put Nady at third base, Bochy didn't have him take practice grounders there, and a month after Nevin was dealt, Bochy returned Nady to the bench, not a typical spot for a young player whose income exceeds $1 million.
