Fukumori...the new Aki?

Perhaps this is a gross assumption based on racial profiling and a small sample size, but it sure looks like the Rangers found a nice late inning arm in Fukumori.  He manages to seem humble, and yet expect nothing but success when he is on the mound.  Sure, his stuff might not be as deceptive as teams see more and more of him, but at least for the short term, he looks like he could manage in the 8th inning role should Wilson or Benoit falter at any point.

Nice pickup in what seems to have been a winter full of nice pickups for JD.  If only he would have shown this sort of acumen during his first two offseasons...
