One Response to Yankees vs. Indians pitching matchups

    It was easy to get excited about Tanaka early on, especially when he started stringing wins together without losses. But the grind was bound to catch up with him. If he pitch weekly in Japan, that's what his arm is used to. Plus, he's facing major league hitting here–the best in the world. I don't mean to knock Japanese baseball, but there's a reason their stars come here and our has-beens go there. Once around the league, hitters will often figure out a pitcher too. This combination of factors might take the glitter off the Yankees' new star.
