Takahiro Okada and Kenta Maeda were recipients of the 2010 Hochi Pro Sports Award for Baseball on Wednesday.  Hisayoshi Chono was presented with the Fresh Award.

Comments from Maeda:

I don't care about strikeouts, but I do care about ERA and wins. (via Nikkan Sports)

I'd like to try playing in the Majors. (via Sanspo)

Comment from Okada:

I was able to win [the HR title] because Seibu's [Takeya] Nakamura got injured.  I was also lucky.  If Nakamura is healthy next year, I think he'll hit about 40 homers, and I'd to reach that and go over it.  (via Nikkan Sports)
