Tokyo Swallows Podcast 37 (October, 2016)

David, Chris, and Kozo get together for the final time this year to discuss the last month of the 2016 season and it’s aftermath. Waffled about topics this month include:

  • The end of meaningful baseball.

    Fuck this cap

    Fuck this cap

  • #37 and the world of back-up catchers.
  • The Swallows’ dreary September.
  • The starting pitching regression and subsequent drop to 5th.
  • Clinching beverage paucity.
  • The worthy Swallows downgraded bullpen.
  • Tetsuto Yamada’s historic double triple-3 and a whole bunch of RBIs.
  • Coco’s year and his cloudy immediate future (featuring Ryosuke Hirata).
  • 2016 Sayonaras: Miura, Morioka, and Hiroyasu “Beavis” Tanaka (plus Arakaki and Davies).
  • Takatsu movement?
  • Our Swallows standouts and goats for the year.
  • The Swallows post-season (a game against children and fan day).

Thank you for lending us your ears during this season. We’ll be back to do it all again in 2017!

    Hey guys,
    Just caught up on the last podcast of the season. Otsukeresama! A bit early, but just wanted to throw my hat (that’s an all-Swallows hat, not that freakish half-Carp beast above) into the ring for some game reports next season.
