    He passed by in his best physical condition.
    Just like most Japanese players who came to MLB.
    At least he looks much better now than Saito Takashi in 2005.

    And I guess,Iwase has no intention of going into mejor league.

    As is no secret, I am a big fan of Yu Darvish. I think it would be good if he came over.

    Iwase would have been the best performing pitcher available from Japan had he come this season. He'll have serious competition for that honor from Uehara this time. We'll see. I just don't get too far ahead of myself on this yet as players could sign contracts in Japan which would take them off the market. Also, they could get hurt, etc.

    Both Takahashi and Aoki are not FA next year. So no chance for them to go to MLB.
    However Uehara Koji is locked to go to MLB next year.

    Pardon my poor English,

    I think Y.Takahashi may not be a good player because he is inferior than K.Fukudome.

    Aoki is young and good,though,he is not tall nor a power-hitter among MLB.

    Watching entirely,Japanese young batters are not good as those of fomer generation(Ichiro,Both Matsuis,Jojima,Iguchi,Matsunaka,Ogasawara,Y.Takaha shi,etc.)

    Totally(including future grouth),I guess Aoki is not so valuable as Leonis Martin.
    And,H.Tanaka(Second baseman of Swallows) is not so good as Hector Olivera.
    H.Nakajima(Lions) is not so good as Gourriel.
    H.Morimoto(Fighters) is not so good as Alfredo Despaige(except catching).

    Though,speaking of pitchers,Japanese young staffs are still Excelent !
    (To say nothing of superiority over Cuba)

    Next Major Japneese Star to play in America?

    After doing some research is it possible that either Yoshinobu Takahashi(.308 BA, 35 HR, 88 RBI) or Norichika Aoki ( .346 BA, 20 HR, 17 SB) coulb be the next major Japanese import to play in America? And if not, who in your opinion is?
