Irabu dominates, gets plenty of support

LONG BEACH - While the Yuma Scorpions were able to stop Lima Time the night before, they were no match for Irabumania on Saturday.
Former major-league pitcher and two-time World Series champ Hideki Irabu took a no-hitter into the fifth inning and his teammates were more than supportive as the Armada dominated in a 12-2 GBL victory at Blair Field.
Irabu, who won titles with the Yankees in 1998 and 1999 and also played for the Expos and Rangers during his six-year big-league career that ended in 2002, is attempting a comeback, much like fellow Armada starter Jose Lima.
If he can continue to throw like he did Saturday night, he might just get back. Irabu looked more like the pitcher who is recognized as one of greatest power pitchers in his homeland than the "fat toad" that Yankees owner George Steinbrenner ripped in 1999.

he has been terrible this year and I would not start him if he were on my team. but.. when Daisuke is on, when he is in his groove, he is a really good pitcher. i watch a lot of baseball and have watched dice pitch numerous times this year. it looks right now like he lacks confidence and doesn't pitch like he is better than the hitter. but when dice just does his thing and believes in his head that he is unhittable, he becomes that. the way he pitched in the first WBC is a prime example of this.
but, alas, he has not been that this year. i think a stint on the DL would do him some good. rest that arm and get some confidence back. eventually he'll be all right. he's too talented to not get it figured out at some point.
