Tokyo Swallows Podcast 08 (May, 2012)

The interleague segment of the season has begun, and David and Christopher got back in front of the mics to talk about the first month-and-a-bit of the Swallows 2012 campaign.

Laying an egg.

Key Points:

  • How correct were our predictions from TS Podcast number seven?
  • What grade would you give Tokyo’s performance thus far?
  • General baseball-related stupidity
  • Hand transplants


Oh, and please let us know what you think about how the birds have done so far. What’s your grade?


About Christopher Pellegrini

Christopher is a budding sabermetrician and long-time supporter of Tokyo's more lovable team, the Swallows. He has publicly volunteered, several times, that he plans to buy the team at some point in the future. When he finally runs the joint, it is likely that he will fine any player who swings at the first pitch or sac bunts (unless it's a pitcher, of course). Follow him on Twitter: @chrispellegrini

    Gents, Ochiai got 2,000 hits, but chose not to join the Meikyukai because Tokyo’s own Masaichi Kaneda talked shit about him throughout his career and said he’d never be eligible for the Meikyukai. Ochiai said he didn’t play to please the powers that be and seems to have held to that.
