No Mo Hideo Nomo


No mo Nomo fo you.So, it turns out that Hideo Nomo totally sucks at pitching.

The Japanese righty, whose career is pretty much over, was released by the Kansas City Royals Tuesday after posting an 18.69 ERA over just three relief appearances. The club designated the 39-year-old reliever for assignment on April 20th and requested unconditional release waivers five days later.

Nomo didn't always suck, though. He was the 1995 NL Rookie of the Year with the Los Angeles Dodgers and has two career no-hitters under his belt. Also, his 123 wins are the most in the majors by a Japanese pitcher.
