by on Nov.16, 2009 @ 8:12 am, under NPB

Chunichi Dragons

...The Dragons are currently thinking about increasing the amount of food and the variety of food they serve at the dorm Ryoji Nakata will likely reside in.

"The last thing we want him to do is feel like he has to restrain himself," said the director of the dorm.  "There's no need for him to worry about the cost of food.  I'll probably wait to to see just how much he eats before making a decision."

Softbank Hawks

...There's a chance that 1st round draft pick Kenta Imamiya will have a shot to pitch against Yusei Kikuchi in February when the Lions take on the Hawks for a practice game.

"Of all the pitchers I've faced so far, Yusei Kikuchi is the best.  He's a lifelong rival. I think he's a rival for the ages.  He managed to get the better of me in high school, but I'd like to try and turn the tables in the pros," said Imamiya.
