Reading too much into an Adidas ad

We have a bit to wait for the next domino to fall in the Twins middle infield situation (that being Orlando Hudson's decision on the Twins' arbitration offer).

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?

  1. Why should he move to 2nd, if he is the best shortstop in the world? Did Jeter move for A-Rod? No, the lesser of the players move. I'd say he has a great chance of stayinf at SS.
    Let him keep #7. Can you imagine the profit the Twins would have with everyone buying the new #7? More importantly all the people running out to buy new Baby Joe jerseys? Pure profit, money can be used for those players we were promised!
