Orix Buffaloes: May 18, 2010

...Seems Akinobu Okada is happy to be reunited (via trade with the Hiroshima Carp) with one of his former players, Go Kida, from his Hanshin managing days.  Okada apparently likes Kida for his power potential.

...The "iron curtain" appears to be going up at Kyocera Dome -- media members will only be allowed in the areas behind the dugout during practice (the area behind the dugout leads to the team meeting room, the player's locker room, and the manger's office).  The Buffaloes are apparently trying to control the amount of information that gets out to the press.

...It seems Yamamoto Shogo was the "favorite" to start tonight's game against the Hiroshima Carp.  In the end, it turned out to be Kazuki Kondo.

...The Buffaloes have posted a little more information on American Night (アメリカンナイト).
