    Remember, he never had that surgery that doctors and management recommended. I would not be surprised if his arm hurts and he is just trying to work through it. He has cost me a couple of times after looking fine a couple of times earlier this year.

    Over paying Oriental pitchers usually don't work out long term

    If Tanaka is ever gonna have a rebound game it would probably be tonight.. They will pull him early if he starts getting lit up.. Yanks have enough bats at home to get back in this game are my thoughts anyways against the suspect opposing pitcher https://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/9582/...

    Now that I think about it, that's a really good point. When has it ever paid off? Even Nomo didn't string that many good years together IIRC.

    Off the top of my head, Asian pitchers that got big contracts and made their teams regret it...

    Irabu
    Sasaki
    Takashi
    Dice-K
    Ishii
    Uehara

    Times where it has paid off

    Iwakuma
    Oh (so far)

    Not good odds, especially for what they're paying.

    I'm surprised this became a pitchers duel.. Still 0-0 thru 7... First one to score probably wins.. ..

    Everytime Tanaka throws a gem he gets shelled the next 2 games.

    Don't think he's hurt...he's just one of those pitchers where if his sinker isn't sharp he gets bombed

    He always gives up homeruns but he can get K's for you

    Hard to trust...Pineda and Severino much better
