Spring profile: Domo arigato, Mr. Saito!

Greetings to our newest friend from the Farthest Reaches of Asia. And though Mr. Takashi Saito hails from Sendai in the Miyagi Prefecture of Japan, he comes to Boston by way of The City of Angels, where sun-drenched palms and loose morals hold sway.

But while little is known about Mr. Saito's moral predilections, there is plenty of horsehide lessons to learn about our new hurling hero. Herewith are several tidbits about the former star of the Yokohama BayStars, Mr. Takashi Saito!
  • As this periodical clearly states, Mr. Saito has logged the fastest pill-delivery amongst the Nippon Professional Base-ball Groups, marking 99 miles-per-hour on Prof. Cornelius Van Den Bosch's famed "Smoot-meter." The complex calculation is based on noted MIT mathematician Mortimer Fudge's Smoot bridge measuring theorem.
  • Though engaged by American pancakes, Mr. Saito remains a "cereal" man, enjoying flakes of corn and grains, followed by a hot mug of water.
  • The 39-year-old hurler, who specializes in relieving the starting hurling corps, has garnered the nick-name "The Mole" from base-ball supporters for his habit of digging with his cleated shoes on the pitching hill.
Please welcome Takashi Saito!

We at Full Circuit Clout will deliver periodical "Spring profiles" as the Red Stockings continue their springtime campaign in sunny Florida.
