This is gonna upset me all year!

I saw Fukudome's homerun yesterday and his swing is almost identical to matsui's....he even does that same annoying bat flip. If i was a pitcher i would nail him in the head the next time up for doing a bat flip...Why doesnt he just be unique and have his own swing instead of copying matsui's?

I asked him and he said he doesn't care what you think, he gets paid to play a game.

Japanese hitters are all robots...c'mon, tell me you didn't know that. They're built to have identical swings and mannerisms.

Japanese anime, no?

As long as he can repeat his swing and bat flip 20-25 times this year I can learn to live with the annoyance.

If you could be as good as Matsui by copying him, wouldn't you do it? :-?
