The only starter I can think of that came over before he was 30 was Nomo. Matsuzaka is much younger and won't rely on that silly tornado windup to fool hitters his 1st couple of years. I think he'll be very good.

Ishii wasn't that good in Japan either.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Don't forget about Sasaki from Seattle

He was a very good closer for a few years.

Its just unfortunate we won't see most Japanese and Korean pitchers in their primes (early-mid 20's).
