It funny, he didn't come out here and say, 'I am going to have 7 or 8 bad outings per year" like prior closers have. I wonder why?

He's already making us happy in January!

If he speaks in K's and SV's, it will be received well in any language.

So in other words, he thinks we'll win those last three games of the season in KC on 10/1, 10/2 and 10/3.

Like any Japanese he doesn't dwell on the bad things that have happened. "Visualize success to ensure success" -Miyamoto Mushashii, Book of Five Rings

So are you saying your cousin said yes?

That is why he has the name Mr. Zero - for his deadly performance in the postseason.

:bkoch:
"Hey, Oakland said I'm pretty deadly in the postseason as well!"

Is he planning on raking our leaves this year in October? Not sure how else he can make us that happy.

LOL! It isn't too obvious that poor sap isn't from around here, is it? :smile:

"Hey Zero man, I hope you didn't sign anything with an attendance incentive clause!"

:reinsy
"What if he did? Bwahahahahahaha!"

:KW
"Actually, Zero's incentive clause isn't based on attendance. It's based on post-season victories."

:ohno
"Bwahahahahahaha!"

At least Shingo didn't say something stupid like..... "I'll probably only have 5 or 6 bad outings this season."

I love it. Let's hope he holds true to his word. Ohio!

It's the first comment I've read from anyone even remotely connected with the organization that expresses hope that the Sox will make the playoffs this year.

That means I won't have to go to the massage parlour to get a happy ending from a Japanese person this year.

If Peattle makes the playoffs and we play them, my ultimate dream would be to have Zero strike out Ichiro in the 9th for the final out and win the pennant.
