...The Ichi-gun roster is taking shape.  On the Friday, Osamu Hamanaka, Ikki Shimamura, and Masato Nishikawa were demoted.  That leaves 30 players on the Ichi-gun roster.  Take away Mamoru Kishida and Kazuki Konda, neither of which are scheduled to pitch during the season opening series, and the team is down to the needed 28 players.

...When the Buffaloes played the Yomiuri Giants on Friday, it marked the first time Akinobu Okada managed a game against them since 10/8/2008.
