Tomoya Satozaki met with the Chiba Lotte Marines today and apparently told them that he wanted to stay because he loved the team.  Shunsuke Watanabe is also in the talks with the team and while he didn't say which way he was leaning, he did say that he liked Chiba and enjoyed pitching in Chiba.  He apparently put the Marines on hold and will have at least one more meeting with them before deciding what he wants to do.

Hiroyuki Kobayashi met with the Marines today as well and told them that he was going to exercise his international FA option to pursue his dream of playing in the Majors.
