Here we go again. After the Yu Darvish stuff, I'm not sure I want to go through this again but Masahiro has been very good in Japan's major leagues:
I'm hoping that Alex let's us know if the Jays are going to bid or not this time. Last time, as I'm sure you remember, the announcement was a mess. Some folks told us through tweeter that the had inside information that the Jays had the winning bid for Darvish, which seemed pretty strange, since the only people that would have known were in the commissioner's office and they weren't likely to share.
The Jays scout everyone. I'm pretty sure I saw a Blue Jay scout at my boy's little league games this year. I doubt that anything will come of it, it is their way of doing their due diligence, but it would be fun to actually win the bidding for one of these guys.
