    Masahiro Tanaka

    There is no word for “lose” in Masahiro Tanaka’s vocabulary. It’s not even a translation thing. There is no “lose” in his Japanese or his English. He’s just a giant bag of win and dominance and stuff.

    He doesn’t quite carry the profile of a Kris Medlen or Jose Fernandez or A.J.

    Jesse Crain never pitched for the Rays after they acquired him from the White Sox in the middle of last season and he’s yet to pitch for the Astros after they signed him to a one-year deal this winter. And whenever he does debut for Houston it won’t be before May 29.
