    I’ve been away for awhile so I have not seen anything on NPB. Now that I see Seibu is in last place, I wish I didn’t. :(

    Anyway, look at those team ERAs!! It’s 1966 all over again!

    Yakult is 14 games over .500 but has a run differential of -2! In the Central, only one team scoring more runs than giving up. Wow.

    Weird year. Hope the offense improves in the second half.

    Thanks,
    Omar

    The Swallows have a +31 run differential and a 28-12-7 record for a .700 winning percentage in the Central League games. This is why they have a substantial lead in the Central League.
    The new baseball, reduced lighting at the stadiums because of energy saving policies, and pitcher friendly umpiring have combined to reduce offense. These things are unlikely to change in the second half.
    Thanks for all the great information you provide with this website.

    Do somebody remember having seen a homer to the opposite field this year ? I’m looking for it on youtube but without clues, it’s difficult.

      Are you talking about from a particular player? If not, here are some off the top of my head:

      Alex Ramirez on 5/14 at Mazda Stadium

      Kazuhiro Hatakeyama hit two opposite field homers on 6/6 at Jingu Stadium
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uage58uILVE

      Wladimir Balentien also hit two opposite field homers in a game. This one is of his 2nd homer on 5/1 at Koshien.

      Their turn-around this month has been quite impressive.

      Through 17 games:

      - 13-3-1
      - 94 RS, 61 RA
      - .286 BA, 17 HR
      - 3.49 ERA

      The 94 runs is the most they’ve scored in any given month so far this season. The ERA actually isn’t that low though, in comparison to previous months:

      April – 3.90, 4-10-0
      May – 2.37, 13-7-1
      June – 3.24, 8-11-1
      July – 3.67, 8-17-0
      August – 3.15, 9-12-3

      Which means the offense is the difference.

      Incidentally, Takeya Nakamura is also having one of his most productive months of the season so far:

      .417/.500/.950, 8 HR, 17 R, 23 RBI

      Hiroyuki Nakajima had a pretty good August, but he’s also having a pretty good September as well:

      .303/.382/.621, 5 HR, 15 R, 19 RBI

      You gave more than I wanted to read, thank you very much. I definitely hope they make it even though I like Orix’s effort this season. Just for the combo Okawari – Nakajima.

    What’s funny about Seibu is that they had the last two 1# pick at the draft, took pitchers and still have problems with their pitching. We probably won’t see Oishi this year and I don’t like what I see from Kikuchi in terms of strikeouts and velocity.

      I wouldn’t be too worried about Kikuchi yet — he’s still really young and he basically lost all of last season with arm troubles.

      I’d be more worried about Oishi, but it seems like he’s doing alright at Ni-gun.

      The big question mark will be Hoashi: will he exercise his FA option at the end of the season? And if he does, who will step in to replace him in the starting rotation?

      “heh. Sorry about that. Sometimes I say too much. :p”

      No, no I meant it a good way ! I’m eating as many data as I can so thank you for that.

      True about Kikuchi, I may be a bit unreasonable on that. I thought he was going to adapt as fast as Ma-kun for example but even in the year of the pitcher, he struggled. Let’s see what happens.
      About Hoashi, if Wada leaves Softbank for the MLB, I guess Seibu will have to worry.
