No. Besides, other than the occasional Yu-type super pitcher, most Asian players are inferior to MLBers.

I think most Nippon Pro pitchers come over at an age when they are already acclimated to the HUGE strikezones of Japan.  Here, we actually have a strikezone.  They also have a smaller and less smooth ball.  This Tanaka kid is 23 and most of the "bad teaching" can be undone.
