    Baystars need to step up their game if they want to climb out of last place. Or are they comfortable there?

    1. EJH

      Steve: Yes, they are comfortable there. People usually feel most comfortable at home.

      When Yokohama starts signing good baseball players instead of cartoon characters that bat .167, then we can begin to take them seriously.

      Go Ham!

    EJH, i hear you about the cartoon character. Did you see that spectacle during rain delay? Oh well, the games continue and the Baystars are the comedians……

      Steve: The game was not televised in Hokkaido, so I missed Morimoto’s show. What did he do?

      Morimoto was very popular when he was with Ham. His antics were amusing and his lack of power acceptable when he was hitting close to .300, but at .167 he is just an overpaid clown.

      I’m not sure if this is the same thing Steve’s talking about, but Koyano started goading Morimoto to come out onto the field. Not exactly sure what Koyano wanted to do, but he walked out toward home plate and called Morimoto over to him. Morimoto popped out onto the field briefly before running away into the hallway off the dugout.

      Morimoto came back out onto the field for a second time as Koyano started walking back to the dugout. It ended there, most likely because the game wasn’t called at that point.
