Orix Buffaloes

The Buffaloes are thinking offering Ichiro Suzuki a job as a player/manager next year.  The Buffaloes would like Ichiro to end his career in their uniform and could be willing to sign him to a contract that would allow him to play until he is ready to retire.

So Taguchi could also be offered a contract as a member of the coaching staff.

    Are the Orix Bufffaloes thinking about signing Ichiro to be a player/manager or player/coach? If it’s manager, Did anyone tell Moriwaki he might be out?
