Junichi Tazawa was one of about eight hundred people that attended a JX-ENEOS celebration event on Tuesday.  He also made the following brief comment about 1st round draft pick Shohei Otani: "[The US] minor leagues are a lot tougher than Japan's Ni-gun leagues.  But, to each their own."  Source: Sanspo 11/28/2012


Hiroyuki Nakajima is not making any comments about the MLB right now.  He did tell reporters on Tuesday that his left flank was fine and that he longer felt no pain in any part of his body.  Source: Sanspo 11/28/2012


Kosuke Fukudome supposedly met with Hanshin Tigers today.  He is slated to meet the Bay Stars on Thursday.  Source: Sanspo 11/28/2012

The Rakuten Eagles have also apparently joined the mix (Senichi Hoshino was the Chunichi manager when Fukudome began his pro career).  Source: Daily Sports 11/28/2012
