Not every hitter to come over from Japan has had success in MLB, but three of the last four big names to come to America—Ichiro Suzuki, Hideki Matsui, and Tadahito Iguchi—have proven to be very good players. There's always a chance that Jojima could be the next Kazuo Matsui, but his numbers in Japan suggest that he can hit around .275 with 10-15 homers. When other teams in your league are snatching up known mediocrities at catcher in the latter rounds, take a chance on Jojima.
That advice makes no sense. They claim that his numbers "suggest that he can hit around .275 with 10-15 homers," then say to snatch him up when others take "known mediocrities." If they think those numbers are his cap, then why take a chance on a possible mediocrity rather than a known mediocrity? Seems contratictory. I don't have to worry about it though, he (along with every other catcher taken before the last round) will go earlier than I will pick him.
I love this move for this season especially.
