The interesting thing about the Rotoauthority article (besides us needing to get a real translation of its source) is that this was projected before the season began. Given Iwamura's running thus far, I think his SB trend will continue. Whether he steals 40 is another matter, but 20 to 25 seem reasonable to project.

Looks like he expects 20/20 out of himself. I knew that 40 number was from nowhere.

showed desire to new member king with measure.


I guess that's how they decide ties... :-b

To summarize the article, he basically says that he's aiming to win the ROY award.

Alex Ramirez, who played in the majors and now plays for the Yakult Swallows, says that Iwamura can go 20/20 in the majors.

Iwamura himself, is thinking he can steal 30-40 bases this year.

the devil rays can have 4 ROY campaigners.
upton dukes delmon and aki.

but none of them will win it because its a small market team, and a player on a team in a bigger market will win it.

I think he says stealing 20 bases doesn't make a player a base stealer, and that he thinks you have to steal 30 to 40 to be a good one. I'm pretty sure he says he wants to go 20/20....wait... he says 20 to 40. ;-D

“you do not call 20 stolen bases 'base stealing', 30 and 40 you do”

"Iwamura's declaration…He aims for 20 to 40 stolen bases"

8-o
Aki is a cocky man, and thats why a lot of Japanese players didn't like him. He used to slid hard into 2B and break up DP's, which the Japanese players don't like and he believes he is great and can help the Rays win. I love having this type of person on the team will only help. Also, Maddon loves to run, so he will get his chances to steal.

Thats aren't the correct translation.
The last sentence pretty much says
"When asked about stealing bases, Iwamura said "I wouldn't say 20, but more like 30 or 40".
