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.

Tigers hit bottom ( Tiger Tails ) The disarray and disorganisation continues within the Tigers ranks. After winning the series against the Swallows they then took the third game of the series 5-1 to sweep the birds. Great work by the Tigers catcher Umeno ensured that they stayed in the hunt and luckily the introduction of Fujii didn't disrupt the victory. Then onto a two game series against the Giants who were far too strong. The first game Fujinami pitching to Umeno was tight and the Tigers lost 1-0 - an abject failure of their batting. Fujinami threw 99 pitches over 8 innings and gave up only 1 home run. Where was Tigers batting? Then we had Nohmi pitching to Fujii. Both Nohmi and Messenger are supposed to prefer Fujii as their catcher though he elevates their ERAs enormously. Tigers lost this one 10-3 an abysmal display for which their catcher must take a huge degree of responsibility. But we weren't finished - Fujii called the first game of the Dragons series and we lost this 9-2. Another dismal display. Umeno took the next game with Iwata which Tigers won 4-2. In the rubber game we saw Tsuruoka call to Iwazaki and he delivered a victory with the help of Umeno. Tigers took the series and so far own the Dragons. Why Tsuruoka hasn't figured in Tigers catching plans earlier is a great mystery.

In discussing what makes a good pitcher, baseball people often cite good control or a powerful fastball. However, there is one other thing players care a lot about: recovery after pitching.
