D’Antona signs two-year deal!

Things finally got worked out behind the scenes, and thankfully D’Antona will be swinging the bat for the birds again in 2010.

He reportedly signed a two-year deal that will see him taking home 73 million yen this year (plus incentives).

The deal includes a club option for the second year.

Phew! Glad that’s settled.

Welcome back, Jamie!

Tsubamegun wishes you all the best in 2010!

About Christopher Pellegrini

Christopher is a budding sabermetrician and long-time supporter of Tokyo’s more lovable team, the Swallows. He has publicly volunteered, several times, that he plans to buy the team at some point in the future. When he finally runs the joint, it is likely that he will fine any player who swings at the first pitch or sac bunts (unless it’s a pitcher, of course). Follow him on Twitter: @chrispellegrini

    Nice work on the site lads. Tremendous effort. Keep up the great work.

    And some good news to begin the year with! I knew I should have bought that limited edition Jamie T-shirt!

    Happy New Year to you all, and bring on the new season…

      Thanks for the kind words, Mac. We’ve been hard at work this past month or so.
