I was always disappointed how Lars Anderson's time with the Red Sox ended, but having gotten about 4 paragraphs into this series about his experience in Japan, I'm devastated.

"The umpires are young I believe one of them is 19 and I don't like them, as is my nature. That's the one thing that hasn't changed between here and back home. But I will say this: they don't possess the same arrogance that the bloated umpires in the U.S. display. All in all, they seem to be humble, nice dudes. "
