    I agree kuroda is a better comparison, and its not such a bad thing hes a decade younger. Only concern is this isnt another dice k situation where he was so overused he just fell apart once in mlb. As we saw with koji, if you csn throw strikes, your delivery has deception your fastball is good at 92 tops.
    Business wise he would bring in a ton of japanese fans from la. Might push us to 4 millions fans next season.

    With the way this ownership has acted, I think we get Tanaka. Not just because he is the best FA pitcher, but because of this statement right here.

    Does anyone know if the Dodgers could potentially make more TV dollars by selling DodgersTV to both Japan and Korea or is that not allowed?

    24 - 0 this year is hard to ignore and he had an ERA of 3.82 as a 18 year old. Never has had a losing season 29 complete games in the last 3 years with ERA's of 1.27, 1.87 and 1.24 with WHIP's of below 1 in 2 of those 3 years. At any level that's impressive, starting to drool at the prospect.

    FYI: She resigned to pursue other opportunities if that makes any difference.

    Don't care why she left, but when the team had to use the DL more than any other team in the league, something wasn't right. I'll celebrate the small victories at this point

    and not a moment too soon...

    Can we NOT replace her with another woman? I think it takes something away from the dugout mojo... however sexist that may sound I could not care less... I just want to win

    not unless they have somebody better in mind...
    even then, not thrilled by the way they appear to be going about it
    like doyer said, either extend him or fire him
