    DeNA is often good when the games don’t matter. They are probably the only team that cares about final scores this time of year.

    They will continue their winning ways into the regular season. Just continue to watch as they rip up the base paths, knock homers into chinatown and the pitching will scare all who enter the batters box.

      You could be right. The Mobages have been known to play pretty well all the way up until nearly the end of of April some years.

      I love to read your optimism, Steve. Everybody should have that at the start of the season, even Yokohama fans. Just don’t let the inevitable losing get to you!

      It’s all about enjoying watching your team, right?

    You guys just do not get it, the DeNA Baystars are for real this season. Please, salute the Baystars banner……

      Mobage are real every years — real-ly bad.

      Please explain to me the source of your optimism (other than your obviously rosy and maybe just a touch delusional personality). After losing their best player (Uchikawa) the previous year, the lose their three most productive offensive players (Murata, Sledge, Harper) over the winter and the only “improvement” is Ramirez. Now, Ramirez is undoubtedly one of the all-time great NPB hitters, but he is almost certainly washed up. Even if he has something left, he is a downgrade from Murata. So, where does the hope come from? I just don’t get it. Nakahata isn’t going to make a difference either. Even a BayStars fan must have noticed that the Giants tend to underachieve. So why keep taking their coaches? Coaching is Yomiuri’s number one problem.

      I hope I am wrong because it would be wonderful to see, but I think Yokohama will finish 6th again unless Hiroshima is really, really bad this year.

    6th place, i dont think so. This year, despite the lose of the 3 players you mentioned, the guys on this years team are hungry. They want to win real bad for this city. So, 6th place is unacceptable and i will not let it happen. I just have faith……

    BayStars nickname is Yokohama Ginko (Yokohama bank) because they’re good at giving away runs to other sides. Yokohama bank used to be very good at giving away money pointlessly.

    The variation on the BayStars song – sung by other team’s supporters.
    “Yokohama Ginko – yume o akemeru” (translation: Yokohama BayStars – give up your dreams”.

    It’s nice to support a team and I look forward to your comments on my blog when I report on Tigers/BayStars games.
