OUR Hideki.....

From the Big Apple Times...about our lesser-known and way less publicised but just as important Japanese pitcher....Hideki Okajima..and the Times' article is linked when you click on the title......

"Okajima’s fastball does not exceed 88 miles an hour. If he sputters in Boston, it will hardly be as notable (Peter here....as Daisuke's sputtering would be). Still, the bullpen he will join was a fragile one last season. The Red Sox will be delighted if he can frustrate left-handed hitters the way he did last year in Japan, when he held them to a .186 average with no home runs in 70 at-bats while pitching for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters.""

Peter here. And he's OUR Hideki...bullpen bound and trying to stifle and silence the opposing teams' lefthanded batters. We wish him well, whether he's pitching to the Yankees' Hideki Matsui, or any darned lefthanded batter in either league. Will he be a key to the Red Sox potential success? I think so!
RSN eyes, and Japan's eyes, will be riveted. And that's so great!
Red Sox Forever!

His heater tops out at 88? I hope he has a heck of a curve!
