Notice of Site Renovation

So much of this site is jumbled up and half done with the new theme. Frankly, despite the number of people who like it, it's driving me crazy. I hate to look at it and call this my work. So the Player Meikan section is coming down until I've had time to clean it up and bring it up to speed with the rest of the site.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

What can one say? - September 5th - 7th ( Tiger Tails ) There isn't much to say about this feeble batting performance from the Tigers and feeble it was. The first game was suspect and Okada (Tigers former manager) went as far as accusing the Tigers of deliberately losing. He had a point as there was no way this lineup should have failed to score runs off a 49 year old pitcher. It says a lot for the paucity of the Dragons resources that Yamamoto is still considered first team material and a lot for the Tigers that they can contrive not to score against him. The final score in that game was 6-0. Wada also discovered that Tsuruoka is not necessarily the catcher to put with Nohmi who is unaffected by who he has behind the plate. Still anyone could have told him that.

September 9th and 10th - The series lost ( Tiger Tails ) Messenger sad to say had a dreadful game. His start against the Giants was poor to say the least but they only managed to score two runs in the first so it wasn't so bad. Tigers though struggled against Sugiuchi who was back to his unfortunately devastating best. Even so as long as Messenger held Tigers would be in with a chance. However, with his arm having been overused this game he couldn't hold. Things disintegrated in the fourth when he loaded the bases with no outs. Giants pounced and ruthlessly drove in run after run. Messenger was removed at 6-0 but his replacement Kaneda couldn't stop the rot and two more runs scored putting Giants 8-0 up. Tigers did pull back two runs via Gomez and Murton in the bottom of the fourth but 8-2 was how the game stayed. It had been a thorough beating.

It took Yokohama starter Kubo just two hours and twenty minutes to shut out the Swallows on a miserly four hits, which was good enough to register Tokyo’s 14th loss against the BayStars in 2014.

September 4th - The Old Dinosaur ( Tiger Tails ) Yes Miura is still pitching with the BayStars and there is still life in the olde dogie yer. However, not enough to overcome a Tigers who even though handicapped with Tsuruoka behind the plate were always able to come back. Iwazaki started and was handed a one run lead which he promptly lost. Tigers then took the lead on a Gomez home run but then next innings Kuwahara got on base. With one out Blanco was next and you knew he was going to hit a home run which he did 3-2 BayStars. Tigers then got runners on in the sixth and Wada went with the pinch hitters - three of them (someone must have told him that a bunch is better than a single surgical strike and besides which he doesn't have Hiyama anymore). Saka drove in a run and then Uemoto added two more. Of course with Tsuruoka gone that meant that Umeno had to handle the relief which he did like a veteran guiding Andoh out of a crisis and holding the victory 5-3. Incidentally, Uemoto got another at bat after his two run hit and Wada had him bunt! What kind of stupidity is that?

If you’re a Swallows fan that didn’t catch tonight’s game, all you need to know is that Chono is a bad bad man and that he deserves to go to hell for inflicting pain into the hearts of innocent Swallows’ fans. But you knew that already.

Rookie Toshihiro Sugiura impressed on his pro-debut, but alas it was all in vain as the Swallows were embarrassingly blanked by a BayStars starter for the second straight game.
