...Despite a poor start, Akinobu Okada will continue to start Fernando Seguignol. But that doesn't come without a deadline -- if Seguignol doesn't show any signs of life during their next three games (vs the Chiba Lotte Marines), he could be bound for some time at Ni-gun.
...Shinya Nakayama was added to the active roster today and could be used out of the pen to form a new trio of relievers (NHK2 / ＮＨＫ第２). That's Nakayama, Yoshihisa Hirano, and Mamoru Kishida. Incidentally, the "original" NHK trio consisted of Daisuke Nobue, Hirano, and Kishida.
...The Buffaloes will be hosting a Kobe Natsu-Matsuri Series (神戸夏まつりシリーズ) between 8/7 and 8/8 at Skymark Stadium (both games vs Lotte).
...The Buffaloes have posted information on discount tickets they'll be giving to people living / working / going to school in various locations near Kyocera Dome and Skymark Stadium.
