Baseball Player Who Might Be Best Off Remaining in Japan

Filed under: baseball, Bill Bickel, Chicago Cubs, Kosuke Fukudome — Cidu Bill @ 3:03 pm


  1. What? Because someone might mispronounce Foo koo doe mee?

  2. I thought it was pronounced “Foo koo doh meh.”

  4. On one hand yes, I know how it’s pronounced. On the other hand, I don’t see anybody not knowing what I meant.

    Regardless of the proper pronunciation (fun fact: I can read Kana), the obvious English pronunciation is what jumps out at you on the written page; and even if every fan knows how the guy’s name should be pronounced, they’re going to ignore that every time every time they start chanting after he walks in a run.

    Just looking for trouble, that’s all I’m saying…

  6. Is it the Fukuoka team that plays in the Fukudome?
