Here’s some bit of good or maybe not-so-good news, depending on how you think of things:   Fuji closing now. He’s a little surprised it came this quick : “Came here as a set up man”. — Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) April 7, 2013   Here’s a recap of what happened last night. Kyuji Fujikawa only threw 23 pitches, so he should be okay to go should there be a save situation. Personally I think that Jeff Samardzija should just go complete game and keep the ball away from the bullpen, but life doesn’t always work like that.  So anyway, to recap: Carlos Marmol is out, Kyuji Fujikawa is in, at least until Marmol is able to recover from Marmolitis:   Funny line thru interpreter by Fuji:”Once Marmol’s condiiton gets better there is a chance he comes back.” I guess it could be a “condition” — Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) April 7, 2013   So now we have an opportunity for a parody!  Disclaimer: I am Asian, I’m not Japanese, and yes, I’m probably a raging racist but grow a sense of humor. Our Closer’s Turning Japanese To the Tune of “Turning Japanese” by the Vapors We had a pitcher, thought he was cool We had a big lead, now it’s just two I sit there staring and there’s nothing else to do Fastball stays flat, strikes can’t be found The pitches teed up, now we are down It’s time to find someone else to help us shut down Got a new pitcher, got a new pitcher Got a few million to set up in the eighth He’s got some good stuff, this brand new pitcher In the backend of the bullpen we have faith Fuji crapped the bed and so did Marm our bullpen is Just doing harm now the Closer’s turning Japanese Yeah he’s just turning Japanese Cuz Marmol stinks so Turning Japanese The closer’s turning Japanese Does he stink?  No He’s turning Japanese Yeah the new closer’s Japanese I really think so Turning Japanese Got to interpret Japanese Out on the mound now More strikes, more outs, more pops, more control More wins, more save, more holds, we hope that it’s so Every Cubs fan and writer will be less deranger Everyone will need less defibrillator Our closer’s turning Japanese That’s right he’s turning Japanese I really think so… (repeat to ad nauseum)
