...The Kim Chee Tae-Gyun Burger will go on sale at the stadium Lotteria beginning the 26th.  Depending on how well it sells, there's a chance it could go on sale at other locations in Japan.

...Yuta Ohmine told reporters after his outing on Wednesday that despite throwing 5 innings, he didn't feel tired at all.  Sponichi seems to think it has something to do with the fact that he was able to throw 2,366 pitches during Spring camp.  They also seemingly blamed Bobby Valentine for Ohmine getting tired in the 5th inning last year because he wasn't allowed to throw more than 100 pitches in a bullpen session.  It'll be interesting to see how Ohmine's arm is feeling a little later in the season.

Meanwhile, Nikkan Sports attributes Ohmine's better performance to pitching from the wind up, something that  he started working on last Fall with the help of pitching coach Takashi Nishimoto.

...The Marines won their first non-intra-squad game on Wednesday -- they had gone 6 straight games (3 exhibition) without a win.
