Katsuya Nomura thoughts on the current Rakuten Eagles' plan for signing Senichi Hoshino:
He's a one-man show, so it won't the same. Things will be harder for the club [to control]. ... His biggest hit was getting Tomoaki Kanemoto. That's what he's good at. ... But Hanshin has money. And Rakuten doesn't. ... He's the complete opposite of me, so that could make things interesting. Not really sure how it'll make things interesting though.
