Fukudome to decide tonight

For those who haven't been following it, free agent from Japan Kosuke Fukudome has been back and forth on whether he intends to play in America or Japan. It looks like he's planning on making that decision tonight. This hasn't got the following like Santana has got, but it's definitely newsworthy.

The teams interested at this point are both Chicago teams, as well as the Giants and the Padres. With players that haven't had a chance to really compete on a daily basis in Major League Baseball, I've grown more and more weary in recent years. It's such a hit or miss market, that you really have to do your research. I've been following this Fukudome story since it was first posted on ESPN, and am personally glad to have a conclusion. Let's hope this doesn't turn into a conclusion as conclusive as Hank Steinbrenner "we're not interested anymore" official statement.

He's at best a 10-homer, .280 hitter. And that's if he gets put on a team with a bad offense and gets a decent spot in the order to hit.

I feel bed for whoever ends up spending way too much money on him.
