...It appears as though Akinobu Okada is planning on re-inserting Satoshi Komatsu back into the starting rotation (Komatsu struggled last season and was "demoted" to the bullpen).  And moving into the bullpen could be Mamoru Kishida.

2010 Season - Komatsu

...It seems there will be a Goya Festival on 5/8 at Nagoya Dome.  Incidentally, that's GO as in five and YA as in yattsu, or 8.

...The Buffaloes will be working with area elementary schools to help educate children on baseball (both in terms of teaching them how to play and as a career choice).  Interested school in the Osaka area can contact the Buffaloes for more information.
