07:39 AM ET 02.10 | Though a decision on his future may not be made for at least a few more days, the interest in Suk-min Yoon's next steps is heating up in a number of MLB cities -- particularly in the AL East. We seem to be about a week away from a decision on where the South Korean will land. When Masahiro Tanaka was out there, teams considered him the best free agent pitcher, and now Yoon could be that guy. Concerns about an injury to his elbow have subsided, as medical reports have been studied closely by teams. There's lots of competition for him. The Red Sox, Blue Jays, and Orioles in the AL East have made bids. The Diamondbacks also remain interested, but at this stage "it could be anybody," according to a National League general manager.

I think it's time we started raising our own Chinese pitchers here in the US. That way we can get their best stuff without paying the posting fee. I will do my part by going out and impregnating some Asian chicks. Who's with me??

Dole's with you!

I sure don't like the sound of THAT.

I know you're HOPING I'm WRONG.

With a shortage of good young pitchers these days, it would be a good ideal to raise your son as a pitcher and don't let him throw curve balls to his arm his fully develop.

And teach him knuckleball early to help save the arm..... that way - if your child isn't great - he may still make it because he can get batters out....

You can't teach a kid how to throw a knuckle ball until their hand is big enough for the grip. And you need to teach them how to throw a four seamer for a strike before you do anything else.

I'm holding out for my dream woman. A 6 foot tall, red-headed oriental woman. (Something tells me I'll be waiting a LONG time)

these teams better watch out, Taiwan baseball is not on par with the Major Leagues, not at all. It's more like double A ball. I'd go after a good Japanese over a star Taiwan player.
