I haven't been able to find his 2003 Japanese numbers, but before that (2308 Japanese plate apperances) he had a 451 OBP and a 639 SLG
The problem with Petagine is that there is no way the Reds would be able to beat his Japanese contract. He's, IIRC, is currently the highest paid player in Japan, something like 11-mil a year.
