    “Twenty players took batting practice on the first day of camp on Friday. Clark led all of them with nine shots over the fence.”

    After reading this and the Yokohama post that said Blanco didn’t hit any over the fence, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that maybe Chunichi made the right call not resigning Blanco and bringing in some new blood.

    But of course it’s still early.
