...The Swallows set a new Guinness Record for most people at a public toast earlier today.  A total 2,7126 people apparently took part in the toast after the 5th inning.  That broke Portugal's record of 26,564 set on 12/31/2009.

...It was a short stay at Ichi-gun for Tony Barnette.  After a poor showing last night, the team decided it might be best to send him back down to Ni-gun for a little more work.  To take his place, the Swallows will likely promote Josh Whitesell.

Incidentally, Whitesell is in the starting line-up for the Swallows today -- he is in left batting out of the 5-hole behind Jamie D'Antona and is so far 0-for-1.
