The guy blew his pitching arm out, no longer making him a “two-way” baseball player. He wasted his productive years on a team that had zero chance of making the playoffs let alone get a WS ring.

Some team will pick him up, but he is past his prime.

The pro-Hamas supporters need to be constantly reminded who started Oct. 7th. Israel is doing what has to be done: Wipe Hamas terrorists off the face of the Earth.

By giving the Middle East conflict a good leaving alone. Japan has no dog in that fight. It needs to keep it that way.

Posted in: IOC warns countries that block athletes for political reasons risk harming Olympic host bids See in context

The biggest winners have always been the cities that loses out on hosting an Olympics. The cities chosen are doomed financially to build/refurbish sites for something that only lasts one month tops with little hope of ever recouping all the money it spent to appease the IOC. Ask any Japanese if they think hosting the 2020(21) Summer Olympics in Tokyo was money well spent.

“Just as long as we do not confuse the flag of Palestine and that of Hamas.”

The Palestine government is run/controlled by Hamas.

Remember, Emanuel is the guy who famously said: “Never let a crisis go to waste”. Japan should take his advice with a grain of salt.

Posted in: Kishida's election strategy in limbo after unimpressive reshuffle See in context

Kishida keeping Taro Kono in his cabinet is a real head scratcher. Everything the guy touches explodes on the launching pad (authorizing the purchase of the wrong types of syringes for use during the Rona pandemic comes to mind). The only government job the guy’s qualified to be in charge of is cleaning the bathrooms in the Diet building.

Kinda late to the party on this one JT. The rest of the world has known about this decision since the middle of last week. One of the drawbacks of relying a slow as molasses legacy media outlet to release “Breaking News” to pass along to a low info/no info readership.

Japan should do the right thing and revoke these Putin stooges’ passports. If they love that country so much, let them stay there.

Posted in: U.S. routs Cuba to reach World Baseball Classic final See in context


Your post is wrought with emotion (yelling does not mean you are right). You are welcome to espouse your devotion for Team Japan, but looking at the teams they faced in pool play (China, Australia, the Czech Republic? Seriously?) and the location they played (all home games in surrounded by adoring fans) the WBC organizers set your team up to get trounced once they jumped on a plane to play outside of Japan. The reality is the guys you support will be one-and-done.

Meanwhile, Mexico is a very formidable squad. We learned that in our earlier meeting. But, that was then and this is now. They are worthy to meet the U.S. on Tuesday night. Japan is nothing more than a sacrificial lamb in a run up to the barn burner that will be a Mexico/U.S. final.

Team USA is hitting its stride just at the right time. 23 runs scored in the last two games. They should have an easy victory over Mexico in the final.

Really makes no difference if it’s Puerto Rico or Mexico; either team will spank Japan (possibly the Mercy Rule will have to be used) in the semifinals.

Posted in: Homecoming hero Ohtani helps Japan win WBC opener against China See in context

Good news: Japan beat its opponent 8-1. Bad news is the opponent was China. Not quite a baseball powerhouse on the global stage.

Of course Japan will advance to the second round. The cards are stacked in their favor. It will be interesting to see how well they do once they finally play outside that country and not surrounded by a stadium packed to the rafters with adoring fans to cheer for them and more importantly the excuses they’ll come up for not bringing the WBC trophy home (foreign players are too big, the grass on the playing was too tall, the sun kept getting in my eyes, etc, etc., etc.).

Our president is a very, very busy man. He’s combating our enemies both foreign and domestic. He has no free time to talk to the yapping media.

President Biden’s visit to Eastern Europe was and will always be historic in scale. From the swagger in his step when he walked the streets of Kyiv with co-world leader President Zelenskyy to letting the Polish president that America will always have their back during good times and bad, Mr. Biden’s swing through that part of the golden was Presidents Kennedy-and-Reaganesqued rolled into one.
