Cool ad placed in the Sun-Times by the Sox

And as for Kaz Matsui, if you look at his numbers for the previous season before he came to the US, they aren't impressive as Iguchi's.


Here's an article from November 2003.


For instance, Matsui is a free swinger who strikes out a lot ? 124 times in 140 games this season. Iguchi only struck out 81 times. Iguchi also had a far better on-base percentage (.438 to Matsui's .365) and a better slugging percentage (.573 to .549).

Iguchi will also make a lot less money than Kaz.

Two words: Kaz Matsui :plain




I think only like 2 or 3 Japanese players have translated into good MLB players - Ichiro and Matsui are few and far between.


Kaz did well for the Mariners before he went back
