Senichi Hoshino joked around with Takeshi Yamasaki yesterday at Kleenex Stadium.  According to Sanspo, their conversation went something like this:

Hoshino: Oh, it's you Takeshi.  So, how old are you now?

Yamasaki: I'll be turning 42 (in November).

Hoshino: You're still young.  It's rare that a manager can both welcome and see a player baseball player off that has played 20+ years.  I'll be sure to send you off before they fire me.

Yamasaki: The manager just recommended that I retire.

Hoshino: They've started calling me the man that sends people off lately.
