...Junji Ogawa met with the team before practice today for a general meeting. It seems that for the most part, nothing will change under his watch -- he doesn't plan on juggling the line-up in any major fashion and he has no desire of trying to introduce his ways of thinking into the clubhouse.
...Chang-Yong Lim was taken off the active roster today with right knee pains. Seems he injured himself during his outing on the 26th.
...The Swallows were scheduled to hold a staff meeting today, followed by a general meeting including the players.
...Yakult apparently want like to keep Shigeru Takada with the team and could end up giving him a front office job. Takada has experience with making player moves from his time as GM of the Nippon Ham Fighters (2005 - 2007).
