I know, I understand the certainty thing. But he has a better chance to perform in the Majors than the 20 or so guys Callis has above him.
And beside, is he really that much of a guarantee to perform at the ML level? Dice K was one of the biggest players ever to come over to America from Japan. He was a #1 overall prospect, but even he only had a 4.40 era. Not bad, but overhyped. If he is overhyped, what I cant see Fukudome doing much.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
