Personally, I think this post is long overdue, but better late than never, I suppose.
5. Masato Yoshii – One of my favorites. Won 18 games for the Mets over 2 years before heading off to the Rockies. He had a soft smile and a hard hand shake. I will not forget those qualities.
4. Kaz Matsui - The only Asian or Non Asian player to hit a home run in his first plate appearance for three years in a row. He fooled us into thinking we might have something here. We didn’t, he sucked. Wound up tearing his anus in 2008. Ouch.
3. Jae Soe – By Default
2. Tsuyoshi Shinjo – Born in Japan and raised in Fukuoka, Shinjo warmed New York fans up with his orange dyed hair. He also stole Davey Johnson’s #5. Bold move for an Asian who is new to this land. I don’t like that he did it, but I like the marbles.
1. Benny Agbayani - Hit a big home run against the Giants in the post season. Always appeared to look fatter than he really was, I think. Some may say he’s in fact Hawaiian, but he falls under this category for a number of reasons, including his game winning Grand Slam against the Cubs on opening day in Tokyo.
We’ll be tailgating/drinking heavily starting at 5:30 in the Citi Field parking lot this Friday. Feel free to come by as there are a bunch of Murphaholics joining us.
Check picture below to see where we’ll be. Look for the people wearing Oh Murph stuff.
