Twitter log, all about Hisanori Takahashi, Feb. 14

Funny that this week I only had 10 twitter updates but three of them were Hisanori Takahashi. Takahashi signed with Mets. I know he doesn’t throw as hard, but he has a good command and, who knows, could be good. I have stopped predicting how Japanese players do, since I thought Fukudome was going to be great (he is not bad, just way over paid…) and and Okajima will be a bust… which I was happy to be wrong about.
