Japanese porn (star)

Very nice article on Kikuchi and the NPB from Larry Stone of the Seattle Times. Some good quotes suggesting that Kikuchi has the ceiling of a #1 starter who should progress quickly through the minors while also giving some history on the first 3 players to skip the NPB draft, including one chastened porn star...


If MLB teams share the high opinions from these scouts on Kikuchi's ceiling, then he will get a lot more than Tazawa's 3yr/5.1m deal (3.3m bonus) with TX offering him 4/~7m. I'm thinking 4yr/9million. We'll know soon...
