INSANITY that they have yet to change the rules to institute pitch counts! How many good, young Japanese pitchers have to suffer torn UCL thus requiring Tommy John surgery before they change things around???
Remember when Daisuke Matsuzaka had some insane pitching counts at Koshien? True insanity, S&M, torture, whatever you want to call it, maybe all three! It ruined him, he could've been a good MLB pitcher iMO. They might've ruined Ohtani! Certainly Darvish is not the same and probably won't be after TJ surgery. His velocity is down since the surgery which tends to be the case, and was going down before he blew out his UCL. Whether he ever returns to near 100 mph is highly unlikely IMO. He's probably done in a season or two unless he can command some better off-speed stuff.

Euro Dude: Stop telling us haafu people what to do. We're cool with it, any word can be said with disdain or disrespect, kind of like some of us are doing with "Euro Dude" right about now. :D I'm joking but seriously, get off your VERY HIGH PC high horse, it's not a good look esp on a subject in which you are not an expert.
Congrats, Tetsuro. You are a man with a big, kind, giving heart!

Japan/Kyoto should set cameras out there, maybe some volunteers. Maybe start with stiff FINE$ first....and perhaps consider CANING for repeat offenders.
