Maeda May Not Get Posted This Offseason After All

In a happening that will likely ruin some team's winter, Hiroshima Toyo Carp Pitcher Kenta Maeda may not get posted this offseason after all. 

Earlier this month, it was reported by numerous sources that Maeda wants to play for either the Yankees or Red Sox in 2015, something that would probably benefit either club. Maeda, though not necessarily as good as Masahiro Tanaka, has gone 82-58 with a 2.43 ERA during his seven-year career, one which began back in 2008.

"We have the right," Carp Owner Hajime Matsuda recently said, via Japanese news outlet Kyodo. "We would like to let him go, but based on his production this year it will be difficult."

According to the New York Daily News, the Yankees started their post-season pro scouting meetings yesterday, where they meet to discuss their future options. Among their needs this time around is a new shortstop, along with maybe a hurler or two. 

So, in spite of the fact that Maeda hasn't been that dominant lately this revelation isn't great for the Yankees, who currently lack a reliable starter. Going into next year, each of the guys in their rotation (which could end up consisting of the aforementioned Tanaka along with CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, Ivan Nova, and Brandon McCarthy) are either coming off an injury or are entering their first full campaign with the organization, a fact that's rarely positive when one's offense is already weak.


  1. Nothing to do with this post, but I love watching the Orioles lose for 2 reasons. First, Buck is an a$$hole! And second, karma is a bitch!

  2. I second this notion Mr. Levin.

    Also, BTW, I figured out the seat situation hence the lack of a text message. I do appreciate your willingness to help though sir!


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
