The TNT (I'm dynamite!) is reporting the M's are close to signing Japanese catcher Kenji Jojima. The beauty of this blog is that even though USSMariner et al have already put this out there, I don't think our regular readers frequent those blogs. So it's like we're breaking big news or something. I don't know a lot about Jojima except that he's got some pop and plays good defense. The deal is for 2 years, $8 million.
His English skills are lacking. Kenji you need to learn the following terms by March:
"Hey Vladimir-I've got some good pictures of your sister."
"Stop being such a baby Gil."
