Ah, Japanese prospects. Some of them are never what they're cracked up to be. Think back to Kasuhisha Ishii, Hideki Okajima and Yasuhiko Yabuta. They all had short lived careers, and they all have quite long names. What I mean is that not all Japanese prospects pan out.
Even the ones that are said to save a franchise that hasn't won a World Series since before most of their ancestors were born, and are said by SI that they will, and end up leaving said team in last for two seasons before ditching them and heading to Cleveland and now their cross-town rivals.
What I'm trying to say is enjoy watching Kosuke Fukudome. He's a decent player that can hit a little bit, but he can' save a team just by being on it.
Coming Tomorrow- Gotta make more. Any more requests?
