[5/13/2016] Part of why Jonny Gomes may have left Rakuten

Nikkan Sports picked up a FoxSports article quoting Jonny Gomes about his time with the Rakuten Eagles.

“I hated not being able to talk to all my teammates because of the language,” Gomes said. “I would just sit in front of my locker solo and sit in the dugout and couldn’t talk.

“The earthquake also was scary — if something happened, I couldn’t communicate. Everything else was awesome. Great team, city, food, all of the above.”
