No doubt that this is pretty insane. I don't know shit about Samurai's other than the movie the Last Samurai that I had to watch for a Japanese History class I took in college. All I remember from the movie is the scene from Chapelle Show where Paul Mooney rants about Tom Cruise playing a Samurai.
What I will say is that this Samurai sliced that in half from WAY closer than 60 feet 6 inches away. Which poses the question; with the trade deadline approaching, instead of a team stripping their farm system for a bat, why doesn't someone give this dude a shot?
You're probably thinking, "doz you're an idiot" or something similar but hear me out for 2 seconds.
This dude is obviously left handed, baseball teams love that. You can be a shitty lefty reliever or back up outfielder for YEARS strictly because you're left handed.
So my man(lets just call him Sammy to save time) Sammy has that going for him. Just think of all the left handed Japanese bats that starred in MLB. There's Ichiro and then there's Matsui. TWO just two. PC losers will always cry about diversity but other than Ichiro who's like 94 years old who's left? MLB needs their next big Japanese star to showcase and I think Sammy is their guy.
Do Samurai's make good money? I'm guessing no right? What does a Samurai even do in 2016 other than just cut shit in half with knifes for fun. I'm sure he's sliced watermelons, water balloons, and that shit gets old quick. Everybody knows once you slice one watermelon in half, you've sliced all the watermelons in half. Sammy needs a new challenge. I'm sure the league minimum salary of like 500K would be more money than this dude would know what do with. Honestly I mean how much can black robes cost?
Sammy obviously has the hand eye coordination to hit, plus I'm sure he's played some ball in Japan. There's basically five things you can do if you live in Japan. You can fish, design electronics(video games), do something in martial arts, be a doctor or play baseball. Really 6 if you wanna count walking around the streets with a mask on so you can breath.
Basically what I'm saying is I'm sure this dude played ball at some point. We saw him hit the 100 MPH heater now it's just can he handle the off speed stuff? I'm pretty sure Samurai's are very patient, so he can just work the count until he gets that one fast ball, then he's slicing that shit to the moon. Plus being a fucking samurai means he's probably athletic enough to play LF since the dude can slice a baseball in half from 5 feet away. All I'm saying is I bet this dude can hit better than a guy like Jarrod Dyson who is in the majors only because he's fast. Someone give Sammy a shot!!!
