Kei Igawa in Spring Training

Kei Igawa in Spring Training
Here's the first news I have seen about Kei Igawa this spring, an article entitled "Yankees Say They Have Time To Wait For Igawa To Catch Up" by Tyler Kepner in this morning's (March 5) New York Times.

It's a bit of a fluff piece, but interesting to read Hideki Matsui's take on the whole situation nonetheless.

The Igawa news from NY Yankees Tampa spring training is not good. Yesterday he had a chance to secure a long-relief spot but may have hurt his possibilities with an erratic outing. Kei-san allowed four runs, five hits, and three walks over three and a third innings in a 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

And indeed, Kei Igawa was sent down yesterday and will begin the 2008 season in Scranton-Wilkes Barre AAA.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
