...TV ratings for the Giants - Chunichi Dragons game is in.  At 10%, they aren't spectacular, but also not bad.  The prior two games of the series came in at 5.6% and 7.4% respectively.

...The Giants are considering a trip to the Gold Coast as a reward to the team for winning the Central League.  In the past, Hawaii has been a popular destination for the Giants.

The trip will likely last for about a week in the beginning of December.

...The Giants will be holding their victory celebration once the season ends, and not prior to the end of the season.  The Giants have 11 more games remaining on their schedule.

...Sanspo is releasing a special magazine commemorating the Giants Central League title.  The magazine will be available at most convenient stores and across major bookstores in Japan.  "Hara Kyojin V3" will feature 88 full color pages and will cost 700yen a copy.

    You know, if they can spend that much money for the players, the 6 years boy can get the V for sure.

      Heh… You obviously don’t like Hara and the Giants very much.

      I forget, which team did you root for again?
