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.
