Aside from succeeding as being a warm body, I don't know where $9.5 million is deserved aside from just having to spend money somewhere. Just another guy, nothing more or less. At least it was only one year.
Sort of makes me wish i could even remotely swing a bat or throw a ball. Look at who the A's signed at SS too, a .300 hitter with more upside and probably are paying less for it.
Other than Ichiro and Godzilla, the majority of Japanese hitters that came over to MLB have been huge disappointments.
