It appears there's a chance Yuki Saito (1st round) might be graduating on his own, due to a possible scheduling conflict. ... Saito's name made it to Electronic Library's 2011 Important Keywords.  He's the first baseball player to make the list since Daisuke Matsuzaka in 2007 and the first name since Ryo Ishikawa (golfer) since last year. ... According to Sanspo, pitching coach Masato Yoshii plans on taking a laid back approach to Saito, just like he did with Yu Darvish. ... Saito will be a signing a management deal with Bow Planning.  They are the same company that represents Ichiro in Japan.  The two players will make up the companies entire client list.  Seems Saito received offers from 10 or more companies.
