Koji Liked Baltimore So Much That He Recommended It To Wada And Chen
There aren’t too many guys that like Baltimore so much that they cry when they get traded. Koji Uehara was dealt by the Orioles to pitch for the American League Champion Texas Rangers and on his way out the door he thanked the organization that brought him to America.
I’ll always remember that.
Uehara’s love for the Charm City continued this offseason when he recommended the Orioles to free agents Tsuyoshi Wada of Japan and Wei-Yin Chen of Taiwan.
I love this guy.
On Wednesday, Uehara rejected a deal with the Blue Jays. I guess Canada isn’t for him. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports says that Texas could potentially still deal him back to Baltimore.
Something tells me he wouldn’t invoke his no trade clause for that move.
