Hiroko Tabuchi has more on Masahiro Tanaka in the Times.
It's gonna be a fun season.
what number is he wearing?
 He wore 18 for the Eagles
“It’s not like I’ve never played ball before,” he added. “I don’t want to overthink it.”
That is probably the exact right attitude. Hopefully he can maintain it.
4) yeah, but Kuroda has been wearing 18 in NY. Whatever digits Tanaka chooses, his jersey will be a big seller right away.
6) how about 21?
sure, if he wants ONeill's old number, why not?
Didn't Roger the Abuser use that number also?
9) I had to look it up, but he wore 22 with the Yankees and Astros and 21 with Toronno and Bosox.
He has 155 million reasons to smile. That should be his # too.
155,000,000 - It would be as long as Saltalamaccia.
Yeah, they all wear their salaries on their back. None more so than ARod.
 A-Who? >;)
