    Would you watch Japanese League baseball, if it were on TV here?

    Food for thought: The emergence of Japanese baseball stars playing in America, combined with my interest in the WBC, makes me wish I could see a few Japanese Leagues games on US TV. I love the MLB stuff, but I think it would be interesting to watch some of the competition blossoming in Asia (plus, you could keep tabs on some of the American players/managers over there).

    Would you watch if these games were available?

    Without question. It is a blast to watch another nation's style of play. I used to get a channel that showed Latin American baseball; it was very enjoyable. I respect Japan and their style of play, so yeah, I'd watch.

    I would. I will watch any baseball at any time. That's why I don't have a TV, to save me from myself.

    But think about it, it would be fascinating. To see not only the great players they have coming up but how they play and coach. It would be rad.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I watch any baseball that is played well. (and being a Reds fan, some that isn't played well) I watch the college games and the Little League WS, so I guess I'd watch them as well.

    I guess my fave team would have to be the Hiroshima Carp.

    Oh heck yeah. I'd watch any baseball if it was on. Little League, high school, college, minor league, American League . Any kind! I think it would be fascinating to watch Japanese baseball.

    They are scrappy!
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    80% of them have the last name Lee. It would be very annoying, and hard to remember names of players, even the stars.

    Nippon League ball isn't bad. I usually watch one or two games a week, usually the Giants or Carp or Tigers. The games on what I'm guessing is the Japanese NBC are usually the best because most of the information they use, strikes-balls-score, are in English.

    i wouldnt watch it as the only baseball i watch is the Reds, some sunday nite baseball and some playoffs.

    But i have wondered why do the reds not have any japanese presence in their organization?

    I'll watch baseball any time and any where. I've watched Japanese and Korean league games on justin.tv and ustream - very hard played games and the fans are truly passionate. I'd love to see a NPB "game of the week" broadcast here in the states.
