Akinori Iwamura-3B-Player Oct. 17 - 3:54 pm et

The Yakult Swallows are prepared to post Akinori Iwamura, sources told the Yomiuri Shimbun on Monday.

Iwamura has been asking for the opportunity to play in the majors for years, but the Swallows have refused to post him until now. The Padres, Indians, Phillies, Red Sox and Giants are among the clubs that could have some interest in the 27-year-old. He hit at least .300 with 30 homers in each of the last three seasons, topping out at 44 homers in 2004.

Pogo, that wasn't very diesel of you. Be nice to the man who's trying to expand our rumor knowledge. Oh, and if you're Canadian, that's rumoUr. I'm sure you didn't understand what I was saying. I have total empathy for you. After all, it's not your fault where you're from.
