Meanwhile, I've become fascinated with this Japanese ad (w/ English subtitles) featuring possible/probable Twins infielder Tsuyoshi Nishioka, which raises some questions, mostly meaningless:
- Does his stated desire to be recognized (as the subtitle puts it) as the "best short stop player in the world" imply that he might resist moving to second base?
- He appears to be quite attached to his uniform number, but No. 7 is already taken with the Twins.
- And, finally, is the art thing real or an ad fabrication?
