Now with the likes of Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper, and Mike Trout all making an impact in the Majors as such young ages, why wait 9 years in Japan for his chance?

If the Mariners don't get him, I'll be shocked. They're running a little bit low on Japanese star power these days.

Good for him and may he find great success playing hard-ball with the Americans.

It is amusing to hear the Japanese baseball league complain about it. I guess they can make more rules...or they could learn to play a decent game of baseball. Mr. Otani just wants to be with the best players.
