Newsday is running a great feature today entitled “Mysterious gyroball may or may not be an actual Matsuzaka pitch” and I saw this in the notes there (at the end):
The Hanshin Tigers’ Kei Igawa, a highly touted lefthander who is likely to be posted in the coming weeks, starts tonight for Japan.
I just looked at the stats for Kei Igawa. Why is this player not getting as much hype as Daisuke Matsuzaka? I don’t get it.
