Looks like his throwing arm could be better from that sample. Ya think?

I'm pumped about this guy. I think we may have another international winner.

That field shown @ 2:40...all dirt infield? Looks like a moto-cross track.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Most of the ballparks in Japan are 100% astroturf of some sort. Reminded me of the Little League field I played on eons ago; dirt infield & crabgrass outfield.

He does seem to short arm his throws a bit... Throws off footed a lot too... ... His balls have a bunch of action on them - many benders...

Donaldson was a good warm up for Moss last year... Moss better be in the best shape of his life to field these 2 arms throws... Extra jumping jacks and leg lurches are the order of the day for Moss....

I HAVE GOT IT NOW!!!!.. BARTON WAS SIGNED TO SUB IN FOR MOSS IN THE LATE INNINGS AFTER MOSS IS CALISTHENICED OUT BY DONALDSON'S AND NAKAJIMA'S THROWS!!! THAT'S IT!!!... NOW, IT ALL MAKES SENSE!!!!!...

Nakajima's foot work may be worked on... Like to watch that workout... The A's Infield Coach through an interpreter to Nakajima and back...

Not a bad theory on why Barton remains.

The only negative I noticed on Nakajima's defense highlight reel was that he didn't seem to have a super strong arm. Some of the throws were somewhat reminiscent of David Eckstein's. But, Eckstein always seemed to get the ball there ahead of the runner somehow.
