200 games, 200 starts for Hisashi Iwakuma

Hisashi Iwakuma started his 200th game of his career last night.  Of interest is that it was also his 200th consecutive start.  Only Shinichi Yamauchi (311 straight starts) has more.

In other team news:

The Eagles held a press conference for Keiichi Yabu yesterday.  Seems Yabu will spend some time (briefly) in Ni-gun for minor adjustments before joining the active roster (which could be as soon as the 10th vs Seibu).
