    Dude, WTF. Kohbe-kun should be 1B and Nakata should be the DH. Seriously. I also don’t entirely get why Ohno-kun is on this roster given he’s been at ichi-gun the entire year, but whatever.

    Western League has a pretty nice lineup there too, what with Oze and Hirata and Iwamoto…

    I went to the Saitama prefectural tournament today, btw — vague upset with Seibo beating Urawa Gakuin. I’m kinda sad that means I can’t follow Uragaku to Koshien this year.

    I was actually a little surprised to see see Nakata at 1B as well, but then I don’t know these Ni-gun players all that well.

    A quick look at the fielding stats does show that Nakata is a better fielder at first. It also shows that Kobe has split time between first and the outfield (about the same number of games).

    Kobe – 27 G, 192 PO, 18 AS, 6 ERR, 7 DP, .972 FPCT
    Nakata – 63 G, 496 PO, 49 AS, 6 ERR, 37 DP, .989 FPCT

    Yeah, but watching Kohbe at 1B doesn’t make me want to strangle something, unlike watching Nakata. They do split Kohbe (which is the spelling on his uniform, btw) around quite a bit — he’s 191cm tall and was basically taken by the Marines kind of as a long-term big-dude-power-prospect sort, but sort of like what happened to another 191cm-tall guy Miyade, he doesn’t really have a particular position; he’s adequate but not fantastic wherever they put him. 1B is a good place just because he’s so tall and such a huge target there, though.

    And the thing is, Kohbe’s 4 years older than Nakata… I think what bugs me about Nakata the most is that a 19-year-old kid should not be THAT defensively limited. Nakata can’t even play outfield adequately.

  4. Gwynar

    How do you REALLY feel about Nakata’s defense?

    I almost can’t wait to see what you do when Nakata’s up with the parent club full time and is playing on a regular basis.
