No Mo Nomo

Hideo Nomo's career in the majors might be over.

The Kansas City Royals designated the right-hander for assignment Sunday, perhaps ending his 12 seasons in the big leagues. Pitcher Luke Hochevar was called up from Triple-A Omaha.

Nomo was among the Japanese pioneers in the big leagues, and threw two no-hitters in the majors. He was trying to make a comeback at the age of 39 after having elbow surgery in 2006, but pitched only three times and 4 1-3 innings for the Royals this year.

If you can't make it with the Royals you can't really make it anywhere.

Elbow surgery? I'm surprised he still has a back left. What a fucked up delivery!
