If anybody watched today's game (9/15) between Orix and Nippon Ham, please tell me with two outs why Orix chose to pitch to Sledge and not walk him with first base open. This move would have given Orix three advantages.
  1. They could go to any base for an out.
  2. Koyano, the next hitter, isn't as good as Sledge.
  3. Koyano being a right handed hitter would be better for Katoh to face than Sledge who is a left handed hitter.
I can't believe the Orix coaching staff could miss this.

Well, just consider it a mistake to match a mistake. Why was Darvish left in so long anyway?
About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
