We posted a poll on the 25th asking you some general questions about the state of affairs with the team. Aoki’s gone, and there are some question marks hanging over the team as spring camp gets under way down in Urasoe, Okinawa.
We here at Tsubamegun tend to see these question marks as opportunities, and the majority of respondents to the poll seemed to agree with us. Not a single voter had the team finishing the 2012 season any lower than fourth place in the Central League.
There were 25 complete responses to the poll, and for your perusal we have laid out the numbers in an easily digestible format.
1. Do you approve of Tokyo’s decision to post Aoki at the end of 2011?
2. Who do you want to get the most starts at third base for the Tokyo Swallows this season?
3. Who do you want to get the most starts at center for the Tokyo Swallows this season?
4. With the players currently under contract, do you believe that Tokyo can make up for the loss of Aoki’s defense and his 2011 slash line of .292/.358/.360?
5. Do you think that the front office made enough moves during the off-season to bolster the starting rotation and bullpen?
6. What place to you think the Tokyo Swallows will finish the 2012 regular season in?
