...Club rep Hidetoshi Kiyotake told reporters of the Giants' idea for a "second" Ni-gun team.  The second Ni-gun team would be below the current Ni-gun team and would play games against other NPB teams, Industrial league teams, university teams, and various other amateur teams.

Said Kiyotake, "By having more than the 70 player limit, you can improve on the overall level of play."

The Giants could start up this second Ni-gun team sometime during the upcoming off-season, although some might argue that they already have a second N-gun team (made up of Ikusei players).

...Seth Greisinger tossed BP today at Giants Stadium.  He threw a total 43 pitches and gave up 5 could-be hits.  Greisinger appeared to be satisfied with the outing.
