I don't know why he didn't try to play a couple seasons in Japan. Would have enjoyed seeing him in a Dragons uniform.

I'm not guessing, he's done. You don't keep a player on the roster for what he used to be. Several races last year were decided by a playoff game, so every game is important. When the roster is finalized, Ichiro will find himself playing Left Out.

From Moneyball, "We're all told we can no longer play the child's game. Some are told at 18 and some at 40, but we're all told". He would probably never be a good coach but he'll be a great ambassador for the game. Thanks for the memories.

@mmwkdw, the recovery for encountering wind shear is to pull back until you get the stick shaker. Would the MCAS actually lower the nose in this instance?

@Tokyo-Engr, they are screened and selected for interviews by a 3rd party, but the actual interview and sim eval is conducted by current and retired ANA pilots.

@Speed, wasn't it actually Japan that took the lead on grounding the 787 with the battery fires?

Hasn't hit .300 since 2010. Was demoted to the front office early last season when he was only hitting .205. Still has a great arm but looks like he's been moved over to Left Field. He'll start both games but don't expect him to finish either. This is just for the fans. He'll be back in the front office in short time. Thanks for the memories.

Posted in: 3 men arrested over murder of 80-year-old woman in Tokyo See in context

@toast, if these guys want to plead guilty and spend the rest of their lives in prison, I'm good with that. If they want to roll the dice with a trial, they deserve the maximum penalty as prescribed by law. I have more compassion for that kid who killed seven in Ueno than these three. These guys terrorized and murdered an old woman, for money and nothing else. Can't find any reason they should get anything less.

They should spend the rest of their lives in prison...right up to the point where their necks are snapped by a six foot drop.

I remember Mao's many successes. Three-time World champion, three-time Four Continents champion, Olympic Silver Medalist. Nobody will be in any hurry to forget Mao...except for you. Btw, Tom Brady has lost three Super Bowls...what a loser!

I would bet my next paycheck that he never took a photo. Just trying to make a bad decision go away. She's just using that as an excuse and trying to get sympathy. Arrest the other girl as an accessory, she'll turn on her friend in a heartbeat.
