Kirin Beverage Company wonders if they have mystic fortune-telling abilities.  Before Hideki Matsui signed with the Angels for the 2010 season, Matsui appeared in a commercial for the beverage company wearing a red uniform.  And during a photo session in June this year, Kirin managed to snap a photo of Matsui at Oakland Coliseum and ended up taking a picture of him with the A's logo in the background.

Pure coincidence?

Koji Uehara returned to Japan via Narita today and told reporters the number one reason why he decided to re-sign with the Orioles was out of love for the team.

Prince Fielder apparently wants to follow in his father's footsteps (former Hanshin Tiger Cecil Fielder) and play for the Hanshin Tigers at some point during his career.

Said Fielder, "The Tigers?  Yeah.  When?  Some time in the future.  I want to play some more in the States first.  And I'm not just saying.  I'm serious thinking it."
