Hanshin Agrees to Terms with Kevin Mench

» 01 December 2008 » In nichibei, npb »

Looks like the Hanshin Tigers have agreed on a contract former Blue Jay Kevin Mench. Sanspo is reporting that it’s a one-year, $2m deal, which looks good for Hanshin with the yen strong against the dollar. The contract isn’t final, but it’s looking good at this point. 

Mench should take over rightfield from the disappointing Lew Ford and bat fifth or sixth for the Tigers.

    Maybe Kevin can get his sister-in-law, Lisa Dergan-Podsednik, to teach him some Japanese since she supposedly is fluent in Japanese. Maybe Scotty Po will sign with a Japanese team also, then they will all be there together as one big happy family.
