I bought Daisuke last August and have him on my roster for $1 this and next year which has turned into a steal. Does anybody know of who the top Japanese prospects that could be in the majors next year?
If you could mention any info you know-how likely to sign with MLB team, who big an impact can they make, would they be worth a keeper for next year. Thanks for the help!
Here is an article I wrote for the cafe at the beginning of the season... http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/2007/tips_sons2.php
Note: Apparently, since Saitoh was injured for a large portion of time. He might not get granted free agency in Japan and may need to be posted. But Nakata, Aoki, Darvish, etc are all too young and cheap to make the jump to the majors unless they are posted but I don't see that happening anytime soon. I will write a Rising Sons III
later on in the season when more info becomes available as to who might make the MLB leap. Hope this helps.
