And We’re Off! [Wednesday Morning Quarterback]
March 24th, 2010 by Dan

It’s still just under two weeks before the MLB baseball season is set to start, but the NPB has already gone and started its season.

To be more specific, the Pacific League started its season last Saturday, but their second series won’t begin until the Central League starts on Friday. Are things looking good for my favorite squad? Nope, they’re 0-3 in their first series against the Orix Buffaloes. Tanaka and Iwakuma had pretty solid starts, but the run support wasn’t quite right to make either game a win.

In the meantime most every MLB team is getting ready to trim their rosters down to 25 men, finalizing their rotations and starting lineups. Most disappointingly, the Nationals have sent Stephen Strasburg down to their minor league affiliate in Harrisburg for further seasoning, experience, and to stave off his arbitration clock.

I’m finding it tough to focus any more on Spring Training, I’m just anxious for the season to start.

      To be fair, that’s the first picture that comes up when I Google Image search “rakuten eagles”. To be honest, yes, you’re right.

    It’s so odd I’m unsure of whether to find it sexy or disturbing.
