A League of Our Own

It likely won't surpise you that I've been an avid watcher of the Japanese invasion of America's pastime, baseball.

While chatting with my youngest brother on line, we noted that this year saw the introduction of Kenji (Jojima) as a catcher of Seattle. The next big thing from the Land of the Rising Sun is Daisuke (Matsuzaka) whose rights were sold to Boston for a measly $51 million. This news was followed shortly by the Yankees acquiring rights to Kei (Igawa). Now, it's doubtful that Kei is short for Keizo, but he is left-handed.

Kenji - Daisuke - Kei(zo) matches the birth order in our family; now all we need is a roster spot for our sister Rumiko.
