...The Lions held an organizational meeting today to go over their list of potential draft prospects. Seems they have about 150 players on their list, including Yuki Saito and Tatsuya Oishi.
...Kazuyuki Hoashi got today's start against the Hiroshima Carp. Takayuki Kishi will likely get tomorrow's start.
...Seibu could clinch first place today (Inter-league season) if: they beat the Hiroshima Carp and both the Buffaloes and Eagles lose. The Buffaloes are currently tied with the Lions for first, but if it came down to a tie-breaker, the Lions would win since they had a better record than the Buffaloes during the 2009 Inter-league season.
