Our good friend Greg, who runs Japan Baseball Daily, emailed the following report on our boy Joe:
that may compensate for the problem he has with southpaws.
Dillon has shown a lot of hustle and he got a lot of points in the press for bringing a couple of cowboy hats for manager Tatsunori Hara. It looks as if Dillon had read up a little on Japan and found out about the tradition of giving presents to those you are attempting to curry favor with.
Sounds like Joe is off to a promising start in Japan. Hopefully I can get (read beg) Greg to keep us informed on Joe's progress throughout the season.
