Insurance agent scrambling .... DOH.

Wonder if this is also a bit of an "insurance" move by the Yankees. By putting him on the 15-day DL now, he's out of pitching in the All Star game. This gives him an additional break, without him having to decline the All Star invitation.

David: He was scheduled to start just prior to the All Star Game(Sunday) so he probably wasn't going to pitch if at all. Supposedly just inflammation. Let's hope nothing serious.

That two day outing at Koshien that everyone thought was in the past....

Right on track with many of the other Japanese players teams have paid far too much for. Japan kills its pitchers. Why anyone would pay millions for a liability is beyond me.

Really? Name one other than Matsuzaka. Don't say Igawa, nobody thought that was a good signing at the time, even.

And notice how these pitchers perform without major injury when they are in NPB, but some get injured when they move to MLB? Seems like MLB is the problem, not NPB.

Wishing Tanaka a speedy recovery from his injury. We hope you get rid of those aches and pain and will feel good as new soon.

Another bust in the making.

Yankees is GB behind of Blue Jays and Orioles. MLB teams aim toward WS than someone is voted for All Star. healthy Tanaka later is better than voted for All Star. Yu already commented he is not interested in All Star that is a popularity votings anyway. Yankees need healthy Tanaka and it needs to get power hitters. About every team has foreign players. Angels was terrible with a team that has a player named Kawasaki recently. The last name means nothing to American funs, maybe. Yankees fund love Suzuki, Kuroda, too. Tanaka needs good rest.

MLB disable has nothing to do with Insurance. Each team take care of players in Disability. They even have baseball disable specialist doctors. Like fingers, back, toes, knees, etc. Notice people rush to players when they slide and slow in standing.

Yes. Exactly. The name on the front of the uniform is more important than the name on the back of it.

Didn't Darvish JUST have to take some time off??

It was a great start but as I always said let the first season start and see how Mr. Tanaka finishes after all star break well we just past that point and he his practically finish what a waste of money on an unproven Major league pitcher!
