The media learned on May 23 that the Seibu Lions are planning to meet Ernesto Mejia’s agent, Peter Greenberg, within the next few days to discuss a possible contract extension.
Greenberg in currently in Japan and attended the Seibu-Lotte game at QVC Marine on May 19 and the Softbank-Seibu game at Seibu Prince Dome on May 22. He spoke to reporters and said Mejia was set to become a free agent after the season. Sanspo seems to think the Lions might be willing to go up to around 600 million yen a year (the same amount they paid Alex Cabrera in 2006 and 2007) to keep him in Saitama and away from other NPB teams.
