NORICHIKA AOKI RUMORS

White Sox interested in Norichika Aoki

The Chicago White Sox are one team who could make a play for outfielder Norichika Aoki this offseason, should he leave the Kansas City Royals as a free agent. Nick Carfado expects the White Sox to make a play for Aoki who hit .285/.349/.360 for the Royals this season. Such a move would require the team to trade Dayan Vicideo or at the very least move him to the designated hitter...

One Man’s Trash: Aoki Dokey

After a disappointing first half Norichika Aoki has really turned it on, resulting in a +46% spike in ownership which made him this week's most added player. Most fantasy owners invested in the Royals' outfielder expecting a high average, lots of runs scored, and a steals total somewhere in the twenties. But prior to the All-Star break, Aoki was hitting a ho-hum .260...

Brewers Wednesday: Norichika Aoki on paternity list

Aoki has been on high alert over...

There's So Much Aoki, You Have No Idea What to Do - (This Includes An Explanation)

I've really been bothered by something involving the previous artwork. My closest guess would be that I forgot to include a nightmare-free version, as well. This is not Norichika Aoki's fault, at all. It's mine, because I can't draw facial hair, so that will not be included in this one. Also, there's a nice background that is kind of like what you'd see on...

WHAT A RIPOFF

Aoki gives Reds fan an imaginary foul ball

There are rivalries, and there are rivalries.  Real rivalries go deep, here the Milwaukee Brewers RF Norichika Aoki wants none of giving a Cincinnati Reds fan the ball after he makes a catch near the wall.  Or more likely, he probably didn’t know what the fan was asking for (as Aoki gives him an awkward “low five”).  Watch the funny moments (courtesy of MLB.com): The Reds...

RF Aoki puts in extra work for Brewers

When Norichika Aoki came over from Japan, he had his routine. He'd followed it for years, taking 1,000 swings a day, arriving earlier than almost everyone to take extra batting practice before games. While that worked in Japan, the grind of the big league season wasn't allowing him to continue the extra work without wearing down. The Brewers asked Aoki to cut down on some...

Aoki has given Brewers needed boost

MILWAUKEE Norichika Aoki could feel his muscles aching, day after day, as the middle of June wore on during his rookie season in America. He was tired -- there was no disputing that -- but for the first time in his career, he didn't know what to do about it. Aoki had been one of the most consistent players in Japan before signing with the Milwaukee Brewers in the offseason...

Brewers' Aoki looks like intriguing import

Norichika Aoki feels quite comfortable in the batter's box. The native of Hyuga City, Japan, proved as much Sunday, when he hammered a full-count, two-out offering from Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw over the fence for a homer. That round-tripper was part of a stretch in which Aoki produced 10 hits in 16 Cactus League at-bats with his new squad, the Brewers -- much to the delight...
