Yomiuri Giants

The Giants are concerned about the cold weather up North, particularly if the series heads back to Sendai for one or two more games.  Last year, temperatures dropped to about eight degrees Celsius in early November.  It might have been better to play the weekend games during the day, but TV deals pushed the game times to the evening.
