Seems Hideaki Wakui is a little envious of how much Yu Darvish managed to sign for.
"I was amazed by Nippon Ham. If only the [Lions] would just listen [to what I have to say and try to understand my position], I have no intention of making this hard on them," said Wakui. "But when they told me they had no intention of giving me a raise, I just couldn't go along with that."
He continued, "My stats aren't so bad that I need to give up [on a raise]. Other people are supporting me on this. I feel like, come on, even a 30M yen raise is fine."
