Default Monster Thread: Sox and Tadahito Iguchi try for Love Connection

I found this at BostonDirtDogs.com earlier this week. It's fairly old news but I don't think I saw anyone make mention of the White Sox making an offer to Japanese second basemen (I've also read he's a shortstop) Tadahito Iguchi.

Quote:
A BDD source says that Japanese news reports indicate that Richard Moss, agent for Tadahito Iguchi, said he is confident that the former Fukuoka Daiei Hawks speedy second baseman will end up signing with the Red Sox. So far Iguchi has received an offer from the Chicago White Sox for two years at $4M but Moss has dismissed that offer, referencing Kaz Matsui’s three year, $20.1M deal with the Mets. Iguchi is quoted as saying "I don't expect to know where I will be when (Randy) Johnson doesn't know. I hope to know by the time (spring training) camp starts." Yankees manager Joe Torre was asked about Iguchi as a back up to Tony Womack and said "I don't know about him."
I'll settle for Alex Cora. Joey needs to recruit his little brother.

He's looking at the Met's contract to Kaz? Jeez.

The Mets should just die. They give out bad contracts left and right, yet never seem to learn from their mistakes. In the process of screwing themselves, they (like DC this year) ruin things for other teams by driving up prices for good players through spending lots of money on average or below average players.

If there were one franchise that I could toss into the fiery baseball furnace, it would without a doubt be them.

I thought the 3B was Nakamura. I could be wrong though.

He's the 3B that wants to come to the MLB. Iguchi plays 2B and SS.

I just looked up his name on google and it says he is a 2b.


Where is this guy coming from?





edit - Good average with good speed, but it looks like he strikes out a lot.

Japanese 2B for Fukuoka. 30 years old...here's his stats.

http://www.japanesebaseball.com/play...p?PlayerID=970

Has had two very good years in a row in Japan in 2003/2004.

I saw him play when I was out there last year. He might be good enough to play in the MLB. If the price was right, I'd take a shot at him as a UI. He could platoon with Willie at 2B, so Harris doesn't have to face lefties.

Beat ya to it!

Wow, this guy can hit. He has homerun power, can get on base, steal bases, and he plays the positions we need -- 2B and SS. He's like Kaz Matsui but GOOD!

I'm all for signing good Japanese players. I was excited about the possibilities when the Sox signed Shingo, and I that turned out to be a good signing by the Sox. If this guy is good, bring him in.
