    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Rosenthal tweeted the Cubs reached an agreement with him yaaaaaaaaay.

    The team's bullpen was horrible last year. Yaaaaaaaay the FO actually made an aggressive move and beat out a competitor for a talent of significance yaaaaaaaay.

    Ken_Rosenthal: Sources: #Cubs in agreement with Japanese closer Kyuji Fujikawa. Rival executives involved in bidding had expected him to go to #Angels.

    Always good to be reminded of why I will enjoy disliking and eventually looking down on the Dodgers.

    Deal:

    Fujikawa deal with #Cubs: $1M signing bonus, $4M salaries in 2013 and '14, plus vesting option at $5.5M or $6M based on games finished.

    If Fujikawa option does not vest, #Cubs hold $5.5M club option with $500K buyout. A total of $9.5M guaranteed.
    Not bad at all.

    We don't know about the guy, but seems like a solid deal.

    Keith Law scouting report - had him at #30 on his top 50 FAs list:

    The closer for the Hanshin Tigers is a true free agent now at age 32 after a successful 12-year NPB career that saw him strike out one out of every three batters he faced.

    He's not as dominant as he used to be and pitches with a solid-average fastball and a good splitter that is occasionally plus, showing more of a steady drop than the abrupt tumble of a really good splitter. He also missed some time in 2012 with an adductor strain, and hasn't thrown 70 innings in a season since 2007.

    He has potential as a setup man but I don't think he's an elite reliever unless that splitter gets sharper or more consistent.

    Good move from the Cubs


    You can cover a turd in sugar but in the end you'll still have a turd... Or you'll have a typical Marc Trestman press conference describing his pathetic team.

    I think the cubs got him because the angels couldn't guarantee him the closer job, but the cubs can.

    Seems like a good signing. Rather the Cubs than the Angels.

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you
