rocky_howard: steamingpile: Slow To Return: Japanese pitchers are tough, which is why we're starting to see more and more of them making the transition to MLBYes and they are washing out early as well, dice-k was supposed to be great yet he's out of the game already.

You're probably instinctively looking at him like a 7-season veteran, but he's in his 14th one.He was also "supposed to be great" due to the gyroball fiasco, not because he was something extraordinaire. I mean, he is/was very good, but nothing we haven't seen before. We were just hyped due to some made up BS.
