I've noticed on cbssportsline.com that Gabe Kapler is on his way back from playing in Japan to join the Red Sox outfield.
Did anyone even know he was in Japan? What the hell was he doing out there?
He played 136 games for Boston last year with a .272 avg, 6 HR and 33 RBI.

During the off-season, he became odd-man-out of the Boston outfield (with Trot Nixon back from injury) and decided to play as a starter in Japan.

Yeah, I knew he was playing in Japan because I was at the Yomuiri Giants home opener. He had the "Can I please be released so I can go back to America" face going for the entire time.

Maybe he was cleaning out his system? The timing seems to fit.
This was one of those muscle and fitness magazine cover guys.

I was wondering the same thing. Then again, he really kind of sucks so maybe he's legit. We'll never know.
