Orix Buffaloes: March 17, 2012

by on Mar.17, 2012 @ 11:46 pm, under NPB

Shinya Nakayama will pitch in Sunday's practice game against the Rakuten Eagles because his start today, against the Yokohama Bay Stars, was rained out.


When reporters asked Akinobu Okada if batting Shinji Takahashi fifth was best when facing left-handed pitchers, he replied, "I suppose so.  If [Takahiro Okada] was batting fifth, they would just walk Dae-Ho [Lee]."


Four of the remaining six exhibition games the Buffaloes play will be at domes.

    I wish Akinobu Okada would get off T-Okada’s back. He’s screwing him up. Okada always praises the awful Shunta Goto. Last year, T-Okada was third in the league in RBI and was sent down. Shunta Goto hit .100 and was praised. Shunta Goto played down the stretch at 18 years old and cost them the playoffs.Remember Akinobu has been the leader of two teams that totally collapsed down the stretch. T-Okada is only 24 years old. Akinobu should leave him alone. He’s going to destroy someone who should have a great career.

    I’m sure Okada likes T-Okada more than any other player and just want to hurt his pride and provoke a reaction from the player.
