    Wada got dropped despite performing well, eh.

    And Ichiro struck out on three pitches at 2:30 but gets to stay.

    That Wada guy is quite smooth. I’d never seen him pitch before, but based on the admittedly small sample I just saw, he locates well and his delivery is pretty natural. Too bad he got dropped.

    Here’s more from YouTube footage. Wada starts at 2:58 and ends around 6:30. Incidentally, the first guy in the video is Nagisa Arakaki, who I thought would become one of the best pitchers in Japan. Last year he really struggled with his control.
