Rangers Buy a Ferrari M’s Get YugoFebruary 26th, 2012 by terrybenish
Hishashi Iwakuna has never thrown a pitch in major league baseball. What pitches he did throw last year exhibited that he was hurt. Took time off, came back and threw fastballs in the 83 mph range.
Rangers signed Yu Darvish, 96-97 mph fastball, a veritable Ferrari.
The Mariners sign Iwakuna, a Yugo.
Larry Stone says he’s a lock in the three spot in the rotation. It was Doug Fister last year, the guy who pitched great in the American League playoffs for the Tigers.
Wonderful news from Arizona.
