While the Red Sox and others try to retool their pitching staff by offering dough to another Japanese player I am left with the usual question. Why don't the Orioles ever try this? I mean ever. If you remember last year the Dodgers fell out of the Erik Bedard sweepstakes because they had signed a player from the Orient and didn't need to trade.

I know last year finally some steps were taken by the club to check out the Far East so it's better late than never I guess.

We have seen the act of most of these retreads they bring in so isn't it time to widen the perspective. Wouldn't it be refreshing to tap into a new resource? With some searching just think they just might find that SS and a pitcher. Others have done why can't they.

Just something to think about.
