Chunichi Dragons

...Ryoji Nakata wants people to call him Boo-chan.  Incidentally, Nakata's measurments:

Chest - 127 cm (50 inches)
Waist - 117 cm (46 inches)
Hips - 123 cm (48 inches)
Thighs - 66 cm (26 inches)
Weight - 115 kg (254 pounds)

Seibu Lions

...The Seibu Lions are thinking about giving Yusei Kikuchi the same dorm room that players like Kazuhiro Kiyohara, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Hideaki Wakui stayed in before they made it big.  The only problem is, the Lions' 2008 1st round draft pick Yuta Nakazaki currently occupies the room.

Said Nakazaki, "I'm not going to give this room up so easily.  I do have some pride."

Still, Nakazaki is interested in helping Kikuchi out with any questions he might have about life outside of baseball, like taking him out to Shibuya and Harajuku for shopping.
