Tokyo Swallows Podcast 19 (March, 2014)

Cautious OptimismThe 2014 Pre-Season Extravaganza is here! 2013 Rookie of the Year, Yasuhiro Ogawa, gets us started in less than 72 hours, so join David, Kozo, and Christopher as they share their thoughts and predictions on how the six teams in the Central League are shaping up.

Content overview:

  • Why the orange team might be better than it was last year.
  • The season hasn’t even started yet, and we already have several injuries.
  • A rookie at short.
  • Konami’s infallible player rating system.
  • Bankable predictions for the five six teams in the Pacific League.

And here’s the Messenger/Murton video that was mentioned in the podcast.

And in case you missed it, here’s a link to the hot stove podcast from February.

As always, we love you for listening!

Intro and outro bookends mixed by David Watkins.

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

    Great podcast guys I have been a fan since 2011 during my study abroad. I am also graduating soon and looking to go back to Japan to work and cheer on the Swallows. Thanks for keeping me updated on the team over the years since I have been back!

    • You’re most welcome Eddie.

      Thank you for listening!
