Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice

Hiroki Sanada tossed a bullpen session on Sunday after his Ni-gun start on Saturday was washed out due to the rain.


The Yomiuri Giants' offense is sputtering: they have not scored a run since the 6th inning of Wednesday's game against the Yakult Swallows.  That's twenty-one consecutive innings without a run.


Bob Melvin told reporters that Ryosuke Miyaguni was a "young and wonderful pitcher.  He has confidence and he made an impression on me."


Sponichi figures that starting rotation will include: Tetsuya Utsumi, Hirokazu Sawamura, Toshiya Sugiuchi, Dennis Houlton, Shun Tono, and Miyaguni.

    Miyaguni was damn impressive last night. 19 years old, facing an MLB squad and he strikes out 9 in 5 IP?

    OK, last time I say anything nice about the Giants.

      Do you feel dirty now?

      Seriously though, Miyaguni looked pretty impressive last night. He was mixing speeds and some of the A’s looked a little foolish against him. He should be a lot of fun to watch this season.
