    Always knew that Wily Mo would go to Japan. A free swinger that can crush a fastball, but if you throw him anything that breaks down and away (or anywhere else, really), he’ll flail wildly at it. Dunno how good he’ll be, but theoretically he’s a perfect power bat for Japan.

    I’m sort of stunned by the salary. Like Jim said, he is an infamous free swinger. He hasn’t really performed well enough to merit this contract. But, all power to him. Much more than he would make in the US.
