Rakuten Eagles want Takashi Saito?

The Rakuten Eagles are apparently interested in signing Takashi Saito to be their closer for the 2011 season.

It seems the Eagles think that part of their problem this season had to do with the fact that they didn't have a dominant closer and had to rely on 5 different pitchers for a total 26 saves.

The Eagles still have flame-thrower Juan Morillo, but he was limited to just 6.2 innings of work over 7 games this year due right elbow problems.
