More comments about Yuki Saito (1st round) from various players: Masahiro Tanaka (via Sanspo) - "We're in the same league and the same age, I'm looking forward to facing him.  I feel fate could be involved with him signing with a Hokkaido team.  If I face him, I can't afford to lose."  Norichika Aoki (via Sanspo) - "I'm a little excited.  I'd like to face him.  I used to watch Saito pitch a lot in the Jingu clubhouse.  I know what his out pitch is.  I know what to do against him."
