Seung Yeop Lee signed a four-yeal deal with the Yomiuri Giants, although the Korean slugger, one of the stars of the WBC, could still play in MLB if the Giants win a Japan Series during the term of the contract.

Lee is getting a wee bit of a pay raise. He is going from about $1.3 million per year to $5.96 million per year. Lee hit 41 home runs and batted .323 for Yomiuri in 2006.

The Lion King is one of Lee's nicknames for those not familiar with him.

Lee had made hints, but also seemed hurt by the fact that his first tryout in MLB went so poorly. Since Lee is a foreign player in NPB, he has a bit more leverage in negotiating his contract. He can hint that he wants to go play somewhere else, although Yomiuri is a good place for him and the Tokyo Dome is a great park to hit in.
