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.

"There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die."
