American league fans aren't the only ones with an interest in the outcome of Tuesday night's game between the New York Yankees and the Seattle Mariners. Not only does the game pit the AL east and west leaders against one another, it also features "Godzilla vs. Ichiro," the matchup of two of Japan's biggest baseball stars: Yankee Hideki Matsui and Mariner Ichiro Suzuki. Commentor Takeo Nakajima joins Neal Conan to preview "Godzilla vs. Ichiro," which is expected to draw between four and five million viewers in Japan.
