Unless you are comparing purely their hype, what does that have to do with comparing their career paths? It's insane. It has nothing to do with that in the least bit. These are two guys that baseball wise have zero in common. To say that Tanaka is the next Matsuzaka, as the original poster implied, is to ignore baseball completely. It's purely on the basis of where they come from, and is a merit-less argument.
