According to Daily Sports, Takahiro Okada is thinking about asking the Orix Buffaloes for a nice juicy raise during his upcoming salary negotiations (sometime early December) for the 2011 season (from 12M to 55M yen, the same as his uniform number).  While Okada did struggle with a hamstring injury towards the end of the season, he also gave the Buffaloes hope for the future with a 33 HR, 96 RBI season (he also had .933 OPS, which was second only to Alex Cabrera in the Pacific League).
