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 MLB

Yes and they are washing out early as well, dice-k was supposed to be great yet he's out of the game already. Well he's with the mets, same thing basically.

Well, he came after playing 7 years there. So imagine if Matsuzaka had pitched here his whole career. 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.


Again, as mentioned earlier, until ESPN and other networks give Tuffy Rhodes the same treatment for dominating NPB this means shiat coming from them. What's amazing is how he was walked every single time after tying Ohs record just so a foreigner wouldn't break it, same with Cabrera the next year. And NPB has Olympic style stringent testing so there can be no steroid talk.

In Japan, I think they call that "honor."

Yeah in 'Murica we call that being a bunch of biatches.
