At the moment I'm only interested in the way Koji decided to tell his fans:
— KOJI UEHARA (@TeamUehara) October 30, 2014
Five minutes later the Red Sox tweeted this:
Koji: "Good morning everybody! You might have heard through media, I signed with Red Sox for 2 years. I am looking forward to seeing you!"
— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) October 30, 2014
No high fives for you on this one Koji.
My thought is if he was really looking forward to seeing us he would have learned how to tell us that himself. Uehara has been here playing Major League Baseball for six years. How the hell has he not learned English yet? It's embarrassing for him, and I think somewhat disrespectful to his fans and teammates.
I'm legitimately upset and a little fired up about this.
When Tom Selleck went over to Japan in Mr. Baseball I'm pretty sure he was speaking Japanese before the end of the season.
