Hisayoshi Chono is hoping to avoid the sophomore jinx next season.  Seems he's also put together a 007 plan: that is, 0 errors (he made 5 this year), 0 missed bunt attempts (he succeeded on 2 out of 5 attempts year), and 7 sac flies (he did not have any this year).

Yasunari Takagi suffered an injury to his left eye during practice on the 7th and spent the day resting in the team hotel on Monday.  As of yesterday, he was scheduled to get his eye checked out at a hospital in Miyazaki.

Giants and Buffaloes work out a trade: Yasunari Takagi for Hiroshi Kisanuki

Tags: , , ,

The Yomiuri Giants and Orix Buffaloes are apparently working on a trade that would send Hiroshi Kisanuki to the Buffaloes for Yasunari Takagi.

The Giants are in the process of trying to bolster their pitching staff and feel that another left-handed pitcher will bring them one step closer to fulfilling that goal, while the Buffaloes are looking for more depth in the rotation and in the relief core from the right-side.

If talks continue along smoothly, an official announcement could be made some time today.

=== UPDATE 2:53pm JST

Doesn't really have anything to do with the trade specifically, but it appears as though Yasunari Takagi has plans to get married to a Hiromi Kanesawa (sp? - 金沢宏美).  The wedding ceremony is to take place in a hotel in Osaka on the 12th.

The two have been dating since they met in December 2006 through a common friend.

I guess the question is, is this a good surprise, or a bad surprise for Takagi and his soon to be wife?

=== UPDATE 11:03pm JST

The deal was officially announced earlier today.

Takagi's new uniform number will be 13.  No word on what Kisanuku's new number will be as of yet.

=== UPDATE 12/7/2009 9:31am JST

The Buffaloes assigned Kisanuki the number 12.

=== UPDATE 8:46pm JST

The Giants held a press conference to introduce Takagi on Monday.  The Giants also signed Takagi to a contract worth 24M yen.

=== UPDATE 12/9/2009 1:32am JST

The Buffaloes held their press conference for Kisanuki on Tuesday.
