Greetings from far, Far East
It’s been a fascinating experience out here. The people are so nice and respectful, everything is very nice.
Tokyo actually resembles New York City quite a bit with its bright lights and big city feel, although it is much quieter and less stressful.
I went to see the Prime Minister today along with some of the players. That was really cool. Who would have thought i’d get to the Prime Minister of Japan’s office before the White House? It’s a crazy path that sportswriting can take you on, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Sounds like nothing major has happened with the Red Sox since I’ve been gone. I think everyone should be prepared for the Yankees to make an insane offer that can’t be matched for Matsuzaka. Why else would the Mariners have backed out before the bidding even started.
Anyway, please join me on the Japan blog. I’ll be way more frequent over there until my return to the States on Nov. 9.
