The Orix Buffaloes apparently caught wind that a team (or teams) might be interested in signing Alex Cabrera and Mitsutaka Goto.
Akinobu Okada wasn't too pleased, saying that while he didn't know what other clubs were up to, now wasn't the right time to start talking about going after another team's player (at least not so much that it leaks out to the public).
Cabrera finished out a 2-year deal this year and is technically a free agent. He has also expressed an interest in playing in Japan next season and has yet to hear anything from the Buffaloes.
Goto earned his domestic FA option in August and while he hasn't really said anything about his plans for next season, the Buffaloes consider him an important part of the team.
