    Is the mound closer to the plate in Japan, I honestly don't know.

    No.

    He's also nothing like Dice-K or the other Japanese pitchers (some of whom have actually been decent, if not worth their high price tags). He's younger has a different style of pitching... From what I've heard, barring injury or some severe culture shock/homesickness its hard to imagine him not being successful here.

    Also--can you name the two Japanese baseball players with most wins in the MLB? number 2 will :mindfuck: you.

    Without looking it up I'm going to go with Nomo and Kaz Ishii.

    Surprised he killed himself, not a bad being the second winningest Japanese pitcher. But I guess being known as the Fat Toad was too much for him.

    Jamie Moyer to the Rockies. Oh no, that old man may get killed pitching out there.

    You would be correct in that it was not him...
