www.japanball.com has the infamous Tsuyoshi Nishioka batting .297 for the Hanshin Tigers. No news on his turning of double plays, however.

I'm glad for him. He was a good player in Japan and should be again.

If he continues to do well, maybe the Twins will call him up. :)

I hope he gets food poisoning and spends the rest of the season on the DL

Yeah, forget that guy...I mean how dare he

A: Sign with a team that wanted him, fulfilling a dream to become a MLB player.
B: Break his leg.
C: After not doing well, ask for his unconditional release forfeiting money owed to him.
D: Apologize to everyone for not working out, accepting all responsibility.

Forget that guy!

I just wish his wife would have come around more often.
Do or do not. There is no try.

I might have thought his charity work with cancer patients and war orphans and baby seals would have turned VodkaDave and BadSmerf's opinions around.

Why?


Wasn't VD just making a humorous counterpoint to my message of good wishes toward the player? That's how I took it.

That's why she left him.

She's actually a lovely woman, and I wish them both the best.

Update - He's batting .279 (somehow that's good enough to be the 11th best batting average in his division)

Apperently it is only an offense if one puts down ownership, or management or person who provides inside information? But it is ok to run down a guy who doesnt speak the language.

What does speaking the language have to do with anything?

Nothing against him as a man, because he's a good egg. But .279? Really? That's why I opened this thread? He hit like .336 and won a batting title the year before the Twins signed him. Now he's holding his own at a league a notch below the IL. Meh.
