Posted in: Tanaka shuts out Mets to improve to 6-0 See in context

Tanaka has been the Yankee's saviour thus far this season. What an amazing performance tonight and so far this season.

I really dislike how the media always brings up Tanaka's incredible unbeaten streak last regular season WITHOUT mentioning the fact that he blew it in Game 6 of the Japan Series.

Total BS! This clip from the NY Daily News' report on today's game is typical:

"Tanaka (6-0), who threw a season-high 114 pitches and is unbeaten in his last 42 regular-season starts in his native Japan and the majors. He hasn’t lost a regular-season game since Aug. 19, 2012, although he dropped a game in last year’s Japan Series."

I haven't heard one report where they didn't mention it.

Typical Yankee-hater BS and as for Jeter not being a team player because he announced his retirement before the season began.... Puh-leeze. He's the heart of the team, the captain and you would be hard-pressed to find anyone actually playing the game who had a bad thing to say about the guy.

Posted in: Tanaka says Yankees wanted him most See in context

The bullpen was never a problem and with Mariano Rivera's retirement, David Robertson should be ready to take the closer reins. "No hitting"?? McCann? Beltran?? Ellsbury??? OK, whatever you say. Now I will admit they have some infield issues with the aging Jeter and in need of an A-Roid replacement at third but there is no doubt the Yankees are championship contenders. Kershaw choked in the playoffs last year when it counted the most. Good luck there.

"In English we would probably call this kind of person a hermit or shut-in." -- The word "loser" comes to mind as well...

Wow, great compassion there. One can't help but wonder if you'd spout the same opinion if someone you personally cared about ever had to deal with those demons.

This one hits close to home because my in laws live in Takamatsu. There is a very good chance that any one of us could of been on that plane.

I live in Takamatsu. You and your in-laws wouldn't have been on this flight unless you were flying from Ube to Tokyo. The plane was diverted here for the emergency landing.

Just when I was starting to get worried about the Yankees making next to no moves in the pre-season. I should have had more faith in Brian Cashman. Yankees are now clear favorites to repeat as AL East champs.

Not much. Ishihara's still got the backing of the aging Tokyo population unfortunately.

I have never liked Princess Kiko's fake smile and I always will.

Shouldn't that be, "and I never will"?

Or maybe he meant "I have always liked...." Hard to tell.

"Just weak people! It is a Japahetic society!"

I love the Japan-bashing in these comments on almost every story, usually from the same readers.

This incident, with it's taunters urging him to go through with the act, was hardly a Japanese innovation. In 2008 an American teen named Abraham Biggs killed himself on Justin.tv to the same sort of chorus of depraved cheerleaders. Google Abraham Biggs for all the details.

Sorry, to burst your Japan-hating bubble, Disillusioned.

Posted in: Daughter says pilot in Texas IRS crash was a hero See in context

The "son" you mention's father was the victim killed in the building when it was struck by the plane. His father was a hero. What a tragedy, and this kook daughter is indeed as mentally ill as her father was and should be institutionalized so that she doesn't end up hurting innocent people either.

Posted in: Head-on collision results in three dead on Yonago Expressway See in context

I travel the Yonago Expressway quite often on the way to and from Mt Daisen for skiing and it can be treacherous at times with snow and ice. Mandatory tire chains are often enforced. I agree that it appears one or both of these cars was traveling at a far higher speed than is advised.

Posted in: Man walks into Wal-Mart in Georgia and smashes 29 TVs with bat See in context

Anyway, this is clearly just a case of mental illness for the TV smasher so obviously anything could have set him off, even a presidential speech. I do agree with sensei258 that it's just fortunate he took out his aggressions on TV sets and not fellow customers.

Posted in: Rumors of domestic abuse persist in Fujiwara-Jinnai divorce See in context

In fact, an incident where Jinnai had yelled at Fujiwara and demanded that she get on her knees to apologize for bringing up his extramarital affairs had made the headlines

I must have missed the "might have" on this one.

I'd say domestic violence is a newsworthy issue, particularly in a high-profile case such as this one. It isn't restricted to physical abuse either.
