That article even mentioned Matsuzaka was a poor comparison. It's like the original poster didn't even read the article and simply threw it there to attack Tanaka.
I think you forget the Matsuzaka hype when he was signed. Now that Yu is a top 5 pitcher,the next pitcher now gets hyper-hype. He probably is a stronger prospect, but just reading scouting reports, the comps aren't out of line.
