Japan Crowdsourcing Followup Part One – My List

Last week, I asked you guys to suggest some players who fit the profile of guys who might do well in Japan. I was hoping I would get 15-20 suggestions, but you guys came up with 38 names. I’m still sorting through the suggestions, so in the meantime I thought I would share the list I started with.

My bias here is that I have a tendency toward guys I’ve seen at the Major League level. In my next post I’ll make my picks of who I think the best bets are among your suggestions.

We hoped you liked reading Japan Crowdsourcing Followup Part One – My List by Patrick Newman!
