I was just thinking that once his career is over what a great story nishiokas journey to and from the mlb would be (and its kind of sad to say). A celebrity sports superstar in japan gets a big contract with an american baseball team with all the glamour and then his life and career spirals out of control (broken leg, wife leaves, all the public mocking). I just get images in my head of after his last game full of blunders before getting sent down to AAA, of him getting hammered in his hotel and upturning all the furniture in his room.
I think im on to something here!
