1. chien-ming wang: he was the ace for the yankees in the past couple of years. finished 2nd in cy young voting in his sophomore season. inning eating sinkerballer. gives yankees quality inning and stability.
2. hong-chih kuo: flamethrowing lefty setup man for the dodgers. started a playoff game in 2006 before injuries forced him to become a reliever
3. chin-hui tsao: he and jeff francis were the future of the rockies. after dominating the minors, he flamed out in coors park and was injured. after being converted to a closer in 2005, he was injured. pitched effectively as a reliever with the dodgers in '07 before injuries resurfaced. currently playing in taiwan.
4. chin-feng chen: slugging outfielder is the 1st taiwanese player in the big league. after shuffling back and forth between triple-a and big league, he went back to taiwan.
5. chin-lung hu: incredible defender in the infield. eye problems caused him to bat ineffectively last year. currently back in triple-a
1. chan ho park: before he became a laughingstock with the rangers. park was the ace of the dodgers staff in the late '90s.
2. byung-hyun kim: incredible submarine closer for the d-backs in the early 2000s. after being converted to a starter, he became a journeyman who bounced between starting and relieving. hasn't played since 2007.

8. cha seung baek: currently projected to be in the padres rotation.
1. ichiro suzuki: a household name throughout the world. mvp and rookie of the year in 2001. first asian position player in the big league. one of the best leadoff man in history.
2. hideki matsui: one of the most fearsome sluggers in japan. his power is declining.

5. kazuhisa ishii: he had an incredible start in his major league career in 2002. after being struck in the face in september, 2002, was never the same
6. daisuke matsuzaka: the most hyped asian player since ichiro showed flashes of brilliance, but is still adapting.
7. kazuo matsui: after signing a lucrative contract with the mets, he was regarded as a bust despite hitting home runs in his 1st plate appearances in the 04, 05, and 06 season. seems to have found his niche after moving from shortstop to 2nd base
8. tomo ohka: he was a great pitcher in 2002. completely fell apart after 2005.

12. shigetoshi hasegawa: setup man for seattle. made the all-star team in 2003
13. takashi saito: 2007 all-star. great strikeout closer. lost his closer job due to injuries. currently with red sox
14. kosuke fukudome: he opened his mlb career in dramatic fashion last year but was largely ineffective down the stretch. has plate discipline but lacks power

Resolved Question: Prospect trades that hurt
We all know that it happens. A team trades their young unknown prospects for some proven players. Sometimes the the proven players are the piece your team needed. Sometimes the proven player doesn't turn out what he was supposed to be.
It is all taking a risk with your young prospect. Sometimes that prospect doesn't amount to anything, while other times he become great.
So name some prospects that your team traded that just kills you to see now that the young prospect your team traded is now a star.
2. Prospect Traded
3. Traded to what team for what player
Example: (Not my team)
1. The St. Louis Cardinals
2. Dan Haren
3. Traded to the Oakland Athletics for Mark Mulder.

Resolved Question: What do you think of my
This isn't the Official roster, but this is my fantasy roster.
SS-Kaz Matsui (his natural position)
3B-Akinori Iwamura (his natural position, played 3B last WBC)
Closer: Takashi Saito
This roster is pretty legit, I'm half Japanese so I follow Japanese baseball somewhat.
*Please no racist jokes, like "Japan is only good at invading other countries", etc. Hee-Seop Choi is korean (hated rivals).
Kenji Johjima (Mariners' Catcher) sucks. Hey Abstract wats good man.
Yea I'm into the Street Fashion lines like; "The Hundreds (I posted a link on my page)", Alife, Supreme, Undftd, SSUR, etc. I rock those brands.
