Light on the news so far...

Sponichi: Akihiro Higashide may be returning to the Carp next season. Early reports indicate that the Carp may be offering Higashide a 4-year contract worth 4-oku yen plus bonuses. An announcement could be made as early as Monday.

Sponichi: Bobby Valentine is getting tired of all the questions surrounding the possibilities of him accepting a managerial position in the Majors. "I've said before, 'I plan to be here next season.' It's getting a little old to be questioned so much. Please, stop asking me these types of questions. I've said the same thing to the people in the US."
