Ichiro (said after they won their 2nd title, he decided that was his last and nothing has changed)
Kuroda (no reason)


On top of that, the 2 time MVP (Daisuke Matsuzaka) sucks now.

Hopefully, magically Japan repeats again but probably not.

They'll always find a way to succeed since they play this tournament seriously unlike teams that have rosters that are 100% major league talent. Teams like the US and Dominican Republic will have a lotmof substitutions throughout each game MLB team owners don't want their players to play full-time.
