seattle is expected to sign japanese catcher Kenji Johjima today or tomorrow
Sources say that Johjima has agreed to terms with Seattle. His name is much bigger in Japan, where he has averaged .305 with 30 homers the past five years and won seven straight Gold Gloves

if this works out i could be a huge signing for the M's, the catchers spot was a total waste last year after Dan Wilson went down early in the season with an injury, i don't know how his Japanese stats will translate to the American league but i would expect his home runs to drop a bit in spacious safeco field

should make for some interesting conversations on the mound
