...Tatsunori Hara will be going for his 500th managerial victory on Wednesday. Alex Ramirez is one homer shy of 300.
...Dicky Gonzalez will likely start tomorrow's game against the Seibu Lions. Seems Gonzalez might be a little worried about Takeya Nakamura as he told reporters that a player with his power could easily hit a homer at Tokyo Dome.
...Masumi Hoshino worked out with the starting pitchers on Monday. Seems he might be second in line in case the Giants' starters don't get off to a good start during Inter-league play.
...Yoshiyuki Kamei took 55 swings during BP on Sunday. Kamei is scheduled to play in a Ni-gun game against Nippon Ham tomorrow.
...Michihiro Ogasawara recorded his 6th three+ hit game of the season on Sunday. That gives him 161 over his career, good for a first place tie with Takuro Ishii (HIR) for active players.
...Yoshitomo Tani was in the starting line-up as a first baseman on Sunday. That was his first start there since 9/12/2000, when he was a member of Orix.
