Via Nikkan Sports: MLB.com's Jane Lee ranks Hideki Matsui's signing as the fourth most memorable storyline for the Oakland A's in 2010.
Matsui returned to Japan today and told reporters that he felt his knee was feeling much better than last year.
Koji Uehara closed out his training for the year on Tuesday. Uehara has plans of working out with Toru Murata (minor league deal with Cleveland Indians) and Yoshinori Tateyama (Texas Rangers) in January.
Takashi Saito apparently selected the Milwaukee Brewers because they showed the most enthusiasm to sign him. While the Brewers are looking at Saito to pitch in the set-up role, it seems he also has a performance bonus that's based on the number of games he closes out.
