Yukinaga Maeda sat down and spoke to Kenta Meada for Tokyo Sports.  There is not a lot of new information, but for those interested, the following are some of the comments made by K. Maeda in the article.

When it was [Hideo] Nomo, I never thought about it for myself.  But then [Yu] Darvish and [Hisashi] Iwakuma went and when I saw them do I got the blurry image in my head.  Then I pitched in the WBC and that blurry image turned into, "I want to pitch there."

I decided "I want to go there too" when I heard the news about [Masahiro] Tanaka maybe getting posted to the Majors.  We're the same age and he's a pitcher that pushes me to do better.

I will do my best so that I can go [to the Majors] with people around me cheering for me.
