Baseball: Lee Dae-ho turns down Orix Buffaloes offer

Hey guys, the first baseman and the Orix Buffaloes are parting ways after two years, as Lee looks for a job elsewhere, possibly in America.
According to a Japanese sports daily, the 31 year old told the team that he wanted to pursue a chance at playing in the Majors.

However, many speculate that Lee was simply just looking for more than the two-year, 800-million yen, or about 8 million U.S. dollar deal, they offered him.

Meanwhile, another report in the daily said that Samsung Lions closer Oh Seung-hwan would be a good fit for the Japanese league's Hanshin Tigers, if he can't reach an agreement with a Major League team.
