  1. Felix Quiros

    Tetsuya Utsumi has been pitching the Dave Mc Nally way (pitching into and out of trouble with good stuff and better luck) and he has just given a two out walk to Tony Blanco.
    Shigeyuki Furuki had delivered a one out-bases loaded, two run single in the bottom of the second. Giants leads 2-0. Kazuhiro Wada dubled, so there are men on second and third for the Dragons. Morino hit a flyout to center field so Utsumi McNallied once more.

    If there were people without access to the broadcast, I’m sure they appreciated your updates Felix. Thanks.

    1. Steve Novosel

      Just to clarify – I wasn’t criticizing the frequent updates, just inviting him to join the chatting on twitter :)

      Your welcome, Gen. I like to comment. I use to do it this way on a cuban baseball website.
      I follow NPB on the NPB official site and know I’d found this site with a lot of useful information. I watch the games on Internet (sp.oovo.tv or Justin TV)
      Thanks for the invitation, Steve. I have to open a twitter account and join the chatting. It’ll be good to practice my english. I’m from Panama, so we are 14 hours behind. I would probably miss the end of the final game because I have to be teaching at the university. It’s easier on weekends.
      Ohayo gozaimasu.

      Felix, it would be good for me to practice my Spanish as well – I used to speak it quite well but I’ve been living in Asia so long I’ve somewhat forgotten it :)

      Anyway I think a lot of the people in Japan and overseas who follow NPB hang out in Twitter during the games, so just look us up!

    Is Yoshihito Ishii a famous/referenced player? Coming in in 9th inning and hitting sayonara hit is just amazing.
