Well as you know, we didn’t get a Japan- Usa match in last years World Baseball Classic. However when we did get one in 2009 and 2006, Japan won. This brought up the question, if the Japanesse Leauges are bettter why are Japannese studs coming over to the states. Well, here is the awnser. The WBC, dosent tell all. As we know, the USA players really only played at 50% during the WBC because the MLB season started two weeks after. Because of this, I had to go back in time. The MLB Japan All Star series lasted from 1986 to 2006 and was played every two years. Every series, MLB won. Japan didn’t win ONCE. Another big reason is, of course, the Money and Financial situation. The market is better in the US.
