Falconsfan567 Posted February 18, 2012 Share Posted February 18, 2012 Why is Darvish suppose to be a sure thing? Why is he suppose to be successful far more than Daisuke, Kawakami and all the other pitchers that have come over here from Japan? Japan's baseball is not nearly as good as it is here. That's why so many guys that can't cut it in the majors over here go and play in Japan to try to get better so than can eventually stick in the majors. Hideo Nomo was good but that didn't last long before teams figured him out. Saito has been very good but he's a reliever. Ichiro and Hideki Matsui have been the only 2 hitters to come over from Japan and have great success. I would put Soriano in that group but he's not Japanese even though he started his career over there. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
