Fighters to offer Atsunori Inaba multi-year deal

Atsunori Inaba is in the final year of a 2-year deal and it seems the Nippon Ham Fighters are planning to offer the 38-year-old another multi-year deal.  The Fighters actually hold a club option for 2011, but they apparently want  Inaba to collect his 2,000th hit with the club and conservative estimates suggest that it could take Inaba 2-years to do it (Inaba is short 158 hits and has only twice collected more than 157 hits in one season over his career).
