Ugh. Some sore Yankees fan posted on a card trading board I'm on, "They should have given it to Cano."

I love Iguchi for many reasons, chief among them that it was my fevered internet searches for any information on him that first led me to WSI :smile: .

I also found this accurately-translated quote from the Diary section on his personal website. It's dated just after he signed with the Sox:January 31st of 2005 (month) 10:30
Good morning it is.
For a long time, we assumed worry, but it completed the white socks and contract, yesterday returned.
I keep imagining how unbelievably cool it must've been for him to come to a new team, a new league, a new COUNTRY, and win a World Series Championship in his first season!

Go Gooch! Now it would be nice to bring Ichiro here so he has a buddy to talk with.

So does this mean he gets his own special baseball card or something?
