The Hiroshima Carp both like what Bryan Bullington and Dennis Sarfate have done for the team this year and will most likely have both return to the club next year -- the team holds options on both player for the 2012 season.
"I'm thinking that I'd like to stay with the Carp," said Bullington. "If the team needs me, then I need the Carp. I like it here in Japan; my family does as well."
Regarding their performances, team GM Kiyoaki Suzuki told reporters, "No one can argue with the kind of season both players are having. ... As long as there isn't an accident, we'll officially contact their agents."
