JUNICHI TAZAWA RUMORS

Junichi Tazawa’s Rough Outing Among Trends Continued In Red Sox’s Loss

Marcus Stroman shutting down the Boston Red Sox, Junichi Tazawa flopping against the Toronto Blue Jays and Joe Kelly walking away as a hard-luck loser represent three key additions to a list previously comprised of only death and taxes. The Blue Jays avoided a three-game sweep Wednesday with a 5-2 win over the Red Sox at Rogers Centre...

Red Sox Notes: Junichi Tazawa’s Breakdown Too Much For Sox To Overcome

Thursday, during the Chicago White Sox telecast, the longtime broadcaster referred to Boston Red Sox pitcher Junichi Tazawa as, wait for it, “oriental”.  And the best part about Harrelson dropping the “O-bomb” is that it’s almost as if he’s correcting himself for already calling the pitcher ”Asian”.   You know, because...

Junichi Tazawa could be the ace the Red Sox have been searching for

If you look closely to the Red Sox pitching staff you could find one hidden gem, without much fanfare. 26 year old Junichi Tazawa is now three years removed from Tommy John surgery, and maybe he is the ace the Sox have been searching for. Back in 2007 Craig Shipley and Jon Dibble of the Red Sox were the first scouts to see Tazawa in an industrial league in Japan. One game  they...
