Well it’s that time in my career and life my family and I had to make a HUGE decision, and so that is what we have done!!! MLB has been amazing to myself and my family. We had an incredible run from the day I signed in 2003 to my final AB last year. It’s been the greatest 12 years and 139 days a person could ask for! The game has provided me an incredible living and has borne many fruits and hardware throughout the years . A lot to be proud of, that’s for sure . It’s now time to move on to my next chapter in life and say farewell to MLB and hello to NPB. That’s right, there is a team over in Japan (Orix Buffalos) that views me as a valuable piece to help bring their organization back on track and I’m up for the challenge!! They have expressed to my family and I that they value everything I bring to the game, and have proven that by offering me a 2 year guaranteed deal with a chance to play a 3rd year and beyond. My family and I are very, very excited about this new chapter in our lives, and rest assured we are going to embrace the shit out of it. I will miss all my peers, colleagues, and most importantly the Fans in the MLB but our paths will cross again I’m sure, in some type of capacity . You all be good and play nice over there especially with the CBA coming to an end. There is enough to go around, just work it out!! I’m out for now. AJ10……P.S. I can’t wait to eat that amazing Kobe beef!!

そして最後に「素晴らしい神戸牛を食べるのが待ちきれない!!」と付け加えた。

存分に神戸牛を食べ、MLB通算282本塁打、ゴールドグラブ賞4回の実力を日本でも発揮して欲しい。
