It always amazes me picking up the Japan Times during a Narita layover and seeing 5 pages of baseball coverage months into the NPB offseason.  The Japanese-language papers seem to be the same way.   

And now he's got him!

It's weird how these things work. I really don't remember any talk of the the Nats being in, or even scouting in person, but Asia was still lightly scouted. It's different now, but a lot of teams still do not have Asian-only scouts
