Yadier Molina hits Norichika Aoki in head with throw

This is one of the more odd, more frightening things we’ve seen in awhile. Two pitches into Thursday’s Cardinals-Royals game, after Michael Wacha threw a ball to Norichika Aoki, Yadier Molina’s throw back to Wacha smashed Aoki in the head. It was clearly a freak accident, as neither Molina or Aoki did anything that wasn’t normal. Regardless, it’s pretty scary – there...

There's So Much Aoki, You Have No Idea What to Do - (This Includes An Explanation)

I've really been bothered by something involving the previous artwork. My closest guess would be that I forgot to include a nightmare-free version, as well. This is not Norichika Aoki's fault, at all. It's mine, because I can't draw facial hair, so that will not be included in this one. Also, there's a nice background that is kind of like what you'd see on...

WHAT A RIPOFF

Aoki gives Reds fan an imaginary foul ball

There are rivalries, and there are rivalries.  Real rivalries go deep, here the Milwaukee Brewers RF Norichika Aoki wants none of giving a Cincinnati Reds fan the ball after he makes a catch near the wall.  Or more likely, he probably didn’t know what the fan was asking for (as Aoki gives him an awkward “low five”).  Watch the funny moments (courtesy of MLB.com): The Reds...

RF Aoki puts in extra work for Brewers

When Norichika Aoki came over from Japan, he had his routine. He'd followed it for years, taking 1,000 swings a day, arriving earlier than almost everyone to take extra batting practice before games. While that worked in Japan, the grind of the big league season wasn't allowing him to continue the extra work without wearing down. The Brewers asked Aoki to cut down on some...

Aoki has given Brewers needed boost

MILWAUKEE Norichika Aoki could feel his muscles aching, day after day, as the middle of June wore on during his rookie season in America. He was tired -- there was no disputing that -- but for the first time in his career, he didn't know what to do about it. Aoki had been one of the most consistent players in Japan before signing with the Milwaukee Brewers in the offseason...
