Club chairman Tsuneo Watanabe told reporters yesterday that Marc Kroon should not be used during the Final Stage of the Climax Series.  Interestingly enough, Tatsunori Hara apparently plans on using Kroon in the 9th, although it seems he'll also be on a short leash.  Pitching coach Masaki Saito also shot down the possibility of using Kroon in the 7th or 8th innings.

Watanabe also told reporters that he wanted to see Hara manage the Giants for at least another 5 years.
