He won't even have to crouch. Think of how long his knees will last.

Lets not send scouts to see a guy like this

"I've been doing this 26 years, seen as many players as anybody, but I've never seen a skill set like this," the first director said, noting that the only real negative has been some nagging injuries that have made it a bit more difficult to see him. "This guy is polished like McKay with Greene's tools, but he's faster than Greene. There should be giddiness; no one has ever seen it. We'll see how it turns out."


Might be a silly question but who's he talking about? Otani?

I've always loved a good underdog story. Go Mets (2018). I know an underdog when I see one.

Do you really think the reason the Mets won't sign Otani is lack of scouting reports?

This isn't a mysterious pop-up guy.

No. I really think the lack of sending scouts/the gm/the scouting director tells you they aren't going to be in on him or did the 16 teams that sent reps all not know anything about him? Daniels flew to Japan because Texas wasn't privy to the reports? The Mets won't be in on Japanese Babe Ruth, cool.

Bruce now lives in Brooklyn and works for his dad. His wife is the daughter of a billionaire so I can only imagine how sweet their lives must be :lol:

From 2008:

"Yuki Oshima-Wilpon, daughter of a billionaire Korean-Japanese financier, resides in London, a hop, skip, and a jump from everyone's favorite department store, Harrod's. According to an article in Daily Mail, Yuki and her husband do not wear any leather or animal-derived products, drive hybrid cars and buy clothes online from vegan Web sites or Stella McCartney. A London Times article reports that not only does Oshima-Wilpon avoid leather and fur products but that, when looking for a new home, she requires a certified pesticide-free garden with organic plants, energy provided by solar panels, and a pool naturally cleaned with marine salts rather than chlorine. Exacting eco-friendliness, certainly, but Oshima-Wilpon still employs a private jet, and with that carbon footprint, madam will have to be satisfied at number four."
