Tsuyoshi Nishioka meets with the Chiba Lotte Marines

by on Nov.10, 2010 @ 5:01 pm, under NPB

Tsuyoshi Nishioka met with the Chiba Lotte Marines today and informed them of his desire to be posted to the Majors.

Said Nishioka, "It might be selfish of me, but I asked them to help make my dream come true. ... If we hadn't won the Nippon Series, I thought I'd be in this uniform [next year].  [But we] did win and I feel a sense of fulfillment."

Club managing director Akira Ishikawa comment on the meeting:

"He was very clear about his desires.  He stated his request and now I'll discuss this with the people upstairs."

    I have a bit of a hard time believing what he says about having stayed if Marines did not win as I heard this news just before Japan Series actually in some article on Yahoo. I was hoping it was just rumours but it turned out to be true. I was quite frustrated as a Marines fan that there were rumours just before Japan Series as that is the time to stay focused and not think about the next season. Oh well…
