Posted in: Ohtani's arrival leads Angels into a fascinating year See in context

The guy is not going to make the opening day roster.  Going to the minor leagues for sure.   Has given up 17 runs on 18 hits in 8 1/3 innings.  3 for 28 at the plate.  Nothing fascinating about that.

backscratcherJun. 15, 2016 - 12:47PM JST There are too many guys that fail here, and then become household names there, like Tuffy Rhodes. Who?

Wladimir Balentien, Matt Murton, Randy Bass, Alex Ramirez, To name a few more....

Hahaha. Who does he think he is fooling? He is toxic. No candidate wants him campaigning for them. They are all trying to see who can out-distance themselves the most from him.

Posted in: 12 Pacific countries seal huge free trade deal See in context

Don't believe the hype!! This article is horribly misleading. Japan won major concessions allowing it to continue heavily restricting its market and keeping tarrifs on beef, dairy products, and rice imports. They were not eliminated to the extent this article states. You will see no material change in the quantity of these commodities and their prices in Japan except for deflationary pressures from the demographic structure.. All the "Stop TPP" signs in Nagano prefecture will rot and decay before you see any material change in Japan for these commodities due to the TPP deal.

Don't believe the hype. DMM.com has offered a streaming service for a couple years now. Selection is a joke just like Hulu Japan. The old guard and studio content owners are not going to relinquish control of the cash cow that is the Japan market. Don't expect much beyond Netflix's original video content.

Only 20 million plus attendance? LA Angels has more than 3.2 billion, LA Dodgers has more than 2.8 billion, Yankees has more than 4.2 billion attendance a year

@toshko, millions not billions in attendance. LA Angels 3.2bn / 81 home games = 39.5mil in attendance per game.
