King of the Mound. Talk Asia Interview with Japanese Pitching Sensation Yu Darvish Well, thank you very much for taking the time to talk to us today. I wanted to start by just delving a little bit into so much attention that you've gotten here. You've been called the best pitcher in Japan, which is the baseball craziest country I've ever seen. How do you manage to deal with all that pressure every day? I don't really feel that much pressure. Instead, I'm just happy to play the game here.
