Here is an article from Jeff Sullivan at Fangraphs with Hirano striking out Nolan Arenado in the WBC in a most filthy manner.

Guy has a bit of swagger. I like it.

article

Quote:
His press conference comes a day after slugging ace Shohei Ohtani said his farewell at Sapporo Dome, the home of Buffaloes' PL rivals, the Nippon Ham Fighters. And though Ohtani's Los Angeles Angels play in the American League, the two teams are scheduled to play interleague games in June and again in August.

"Young Mr. Ohtani? I've faced him many times in Japan, and I want to shut him down there as well," Hirano said.

For the record, Hirano has faced Ohtani 15 times. The Angels' new left-handed-hitting slugger struck out in seven of those plate appearances, got the ball out of the infield just twice, and has just an infield single to show for his efforts.


Some other interesting items within the article.
