The media learned today that the twelve NPB teams are proposing that a full-time manager be selected for Samurai Japan.  The manager would be expected to check on talent year-round by watching spring/fall camp and regular season games.  He would be in charge of selecting teams for international games during the off-season, the Premium 12 in 2015, and the World Baseball Classic in 2017.
