TADAHITO IGUCHI NEWS

Thanks Paulie

It’s odd to think that an 18 year career can be summed up in a single moment, but sometimes that’s just what happens. Those of us that were there to see it will never forget the sound of 40,000 people simultaneously cheering and rising to their feet the moment the ball left the bat. On a cold, rainy, miserable night on the South Side of Chicago, Paul Konerko cemented his place...

Gillaspie in Two-Hole Makes Too Much Sense

It’s been since the 2005-2006 seasons when the White Sox have had the same player bat second in the order over 100 times in consecutive seasons, when Tadahito Iguchi accomplished that. Before Iguchi, a Sox player hadn’t done that since Luis Aparicio in 1969-1970 (although Joey Cora was on his way to accomplishing such if there was no strike in 1994). You can probably imagine...

Jedd Gyorko and a post that’s not really about Orlando Hudson but is about pain

Jedd Gyorko returned from the Paternity List yesterday the proud father of twin boys. He was just in time to catch the rubber-game of an early NL West showdown with the 1st place San Francisco Giants. Unfortunately, the Giants took the game 3-2, and with it the series. But Jedd Gyorko was back. No,  Jedd Gyorko is back. The West Virginian, in going 1 for 3 with zero K’s, reminded...

Why Hitting Avisail Garcia Second Makes Sense

When one thinks of two hitters, skills like speed, bat control, bunting, and the ability to hit to the opposite field come to mind. Typically, this spot is filled by a middle infielder or outfielder who is shorter in stature; guys like Tadahito Iguchi, Gordon Beckham, and Joey Cora. When his mechanics are on, Avi Garcia's swing looks about as deadly as anyone's....

Oakland's signing of Hiroyuki Nakajima is a gamble

Yesterday, the Oakland A's signed Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima to a two-year deal worth $6.5 million, with an option for $5.5 million for 2015. Nakajima was posted last year and the bidding was won by the Yankees, who couldn't come to an agreement with him. This winter, the A's got a deal done with the veteran. However, despite Oakland filling their shortstop...

Yankees Win Bid for Hiroyuki Nakajima

There have been reports stating that Nakajima was hoping to land on the West Coast, and I suspect (though cannot confirm) that he would prefer a starting gig as he is currently in the prime of his career. As such, it will be interesting to see if he accepts the Yankees offer, whatever it may be, to serve as their primary utility infielder - it would not be unprecedented for Nakajima...
