    As I compare statistics I think that Nippon-Ham’s starting rotation seems to be a little bit better than Yomiuri’s; but the Giants have a good advantage in the bullpen.
    Position by position, I feel that Nippon-Ham has an advantage at first baseman, left fielder and right fielder while Yomiuri has a better infield at second, third and shortstop and perhaps the best japanese catcher.
    I think they are even at right field.
    So I feel optimistic about Yomiuri’s chances to win the Nippon Series.

      For the starting rotations, I think a lot will depend on which Sawamura shows up and whether or not Sugiuchi healthy.

  2. Felix Quiros

    Sure it is, Gen. Sawamura didn’t pitch bad against the Fighters in one of their interleague game and Toshiya Sugiuchi is needed for this tough series.

    This will go atleast to Game 6 or 7 in favor of the Giants. Game 4 was nearly a draw and Youmiri looks like they will pull this off for their first title since 2009.

    That “Dead Ball” “Kikken Pitch” call was horrible. His face was way out over the plate. The ball was high, but over the center of the plate a hair to the inside. The ball hit his bat. I don’t think it hit him at all, but I can’t be more than 90% sure because the media won’t show it. They can show a super slow motion double being hit, so clear you can see each stitch on the ball, but on a close play, nah, no one wants that.

    That said, the Giants beat us tonight without the bad call.

    1. Ed

      You are right. The ball touched neither the bat nor Katoh. I think the bat hit Tsuruoka’s glove at the same time as the ball did. And looking at the good video on YouTube, it is clear that the ball was over the center of the plate.

    Yomiuri won the sixth game 4-3 and kyojin rules. They’re 2012 Japan Series Champions. Shinnosuke Abe drove in the winning run. So that’s all, folks. This one belongs to the Giants.
