Chances are a translator will not be needed at any off-season negotiating session between Koji Uehara and Ben Cherington. Or maybe the meeting won't take place at all. Uehara blew another save last night—perhaps his most spectacular—giving up dual solo HRs to The Evil Ones in the 9th inning in a 5-4 loss.
