Domo Arigato Mr. Hisanori Takahashi

Lots of reports out there that the Mets are on the cusp of signing Hisanori Takahashi to a minor league contract.

From the NY Times:
The Dodgers, Orioles, Red Sox and Padres also offered minor league contracts, but the Mets made the strongest offer. According to the report, Takahashi would make roughly $1 million if he cracks the major league team, with a chance for an additional $500,000 in performance incentives. Takahashi, who turns 35 in April, posted a 3.70 ERA over 10 seasons with the Yomiuri Giants. The veteran southpaw was a starting pitcher in Japan, but has been projected by many as a reliever in the United States. If that holds true, he would have a chance to be the second left-hander out of the bullpen behind Pedro Feliciano in New York.
