    Golden Eagles acquire SP Okamoto from the Hawks

    The Eagles made the first big move of the NBL, moving MR Gavin Floyd and prospect Miguel Cruz to the Hawks for LHP Koryusai Okamoto. While the loss of Cruz may hurt in the long run, the Eagles wanted another southpaw in their rotation, and were willing to sacrifice Floyd in order to do so.

    Season 2 Draft Highlights

    1st Round (14): SP Tadamichi Maruyama

    Really like this kid. Big righty with this potential for three plus pitches. He needs his control to develop, but I love that his movement is already at 50.

    2nd round (14): 3B Natsume Noda

    With my short porch in right, I try to target some power lefties. Noda is just that, and his intangibles are off the charts.

    3rd Round (14): SP Naruhiko Fujihara

    Not sure if this guy will develop at all, but that change-up/slider/fastball combination and his size (6'5, 225) have me excited. I have no clue as to whether size matters, but I love having big pitchers.

    4th round (14): SP Kenko 'Sniper' Suzuki

    He had me at "Sniper". Another guy with the potential for 3 plus pitches who needs to develop some control before he can really contribute. Despite being only 6'0, the nickname alone makes him my favorite draftee.
