He seems like he will be interesting I like what he said at the end of the story, its hokie but its still cool.

“I’m very excited to be here,” Takatsu said. “Chicago is my ‘Field of Dreams.’

Come on dude, you faced him in 91. He's changed a little since then. He's gonna be reliable, I believe.

"Shingo-san, it's up to you to save my job. By the way, you wouldn't happen to have Hideki Irabu's phone number, would you?" :cool:

Being a righty side-armer I'm sure he's still deadly against righties but has trouble with lefties. Hitting a guy is just a way of showing him who's boss and thats actually okay with me.

Lol, it wouldn't be okay with me. Good sportsmanship Ondafarm, that's how the game is played. Tell me something, are you going to root for Shingo, and do you think he can be at least solid in the pen? KW is considering him the replacement for Sullivan, partly because of the delivery motion.

I'm surprised he didn't mention how excited he is about Elvis nights--
