Shun Yamaguchi visited the Yokohama Bay Star offices in Yokohama on November 8 to file paperwork for his domestic free agent option. He told reporters he struggled with his decision because he loves the team and feels they are close to becoming a championship-caliber team, but was also curious about hearing what other teams thought about him. He also said he wanted to listen to all offers and that remaining in Yokohama was still an option.
[UPDATE 11/10 @ 2:41am]
The Bay Stars last offer to Yamaguchi may have been a three year deal worth over 500 million yen.
