    Daisuke Matzuzaka

    On SNY Mets Hot Stove they were pondering signing DiceK....like Brian Wilson another low risk high reward signing that could generate some media attention as a bonus. If DiceK works out he would be the first big time Japanese player we ever signed that panned out other than some cred to Takahashi (Matsui, Igarashi, Nomo, Yoshii, etc.) never lived up to the hype or lost their edge by the time they played for us. If he has anything left he would be one helluva pickup. Like drafting Rule 5 players we have little to lose bringing in a rehab squad...Sizemore too.

    I wouldnt be able to watch him throw 30 pitches per inning. He takes forever to pitch also and hes not even good. I would pass on him

    Positives: He may accept his salary in Yen.

    Negatives: He'll pitch.

    Only the bottom layers. He's not THAT valuable.

    I'll pitch for free if that helps them.

    Wow. We have had more terrible Japanese players than any other franchise. You forgot Shinjo, Komiyama, Ishii, we've actually had two Takahashi's (Ken and Hisonri) and a first name Takahashi- (Kashiwada), Takatsu, and maybe a couple others.

    Its a shame we can't get Irabu too. Matsui should be counted twice- he was that big of a flop.

    Why did you make a duplicate thread?

    Instead of Ichiro we got Shinjo and instead of Hideki we got Kaz. The Mets have had like twelve Japanese players...I cannot recall them having more than one at a time...and thwy wrte all disappointments. Maybe the 13th try would be the lucky one.

    He can be the next "Fat Toad" of NY. What an effin' waste of oxygen. His main problem (besides not being in shape) is he never adapted to the MLB game. He still tries to play the Japanese game of throwing the "straight-oh" past every hitter. Fastballs are a dime a dozen here -- he never bothered to learn how to pitch. He's not about getting outs -- just a typical Japanese "try to strike them out" pitcher. And, even when he was less obese and a better arm, he still did not have the stiff to pull it off. Interestingly, Darvish is the polar opposite style-wise, despite having exponentially better stuff -- that's the guy we missed out on.

    Didn't the Sawks pay $50 million just to talk to him???? Then pay him a salary on top of that.

    What a waste of $$$$.
