    I thought part of the reason they brought Takagi in as manager was to buy time for Kazuyoshi Tatsunami to get ready to be a manager. I’m surprised then that he isn’t on the coaching staff.

      It’s not uncommon that players with Tatsunami’s career numbers do not work under anybody. They go straight to managerial jobs.

    I understand – I’ve seen it any number of times – Atsuya Furuta comes to mind and the BayStars current courting of Kimiyasu Kudoh. But then why bother with bringing in Takagi? Why not just go ahead and hire Tatsunami now?
