Taishi Ota is thinking about improving his eyesight (for moving objects) by reading numbers off license plates while in the car.


Hayato Sakamoto wants to steal at least 20 bases in 2011.


Ryota Wakiya has his eyes on a batting average over .300, 30+ stolen bases, and 30+ sac hits.

DYK: Eishin Soyogi (HIR) became the first player in NPB history to accomplish the feat this season: .306 AVG, 43 SB, 36 SH.


Alex Ramirez apparently wants a new phrase to say during his hero interviews in 2011.  This season, he used the phrase "Yorokonde!"

Ramirez is currently trying to find ideas via the Internet and various comedy sketches while spending the winter in his home in Florida.
