I guess the alter-ego thing didn't work, huh? I'm just experimenting with different ways of presenting. A lot of the video podcasters that I like have a short introduction before the usual title and jingle. Still needs some work, I guess.

This Morgan guy seems pretty interesting. He started off as a hockey player? Maybe that's where he gets his game time persona that frequently knocks out catchers? From what I've seen of him so far, though, he seems quite the nice guy.

With him and Aramine in the outfield, the ground that Ramirez will need to cover should be minimized. The fact that Morgan can actually steal bases also has some appeal, even if he gets caught frequently (but not nearly as often as other Baystars!).

I wasn't sniping at Ur alter ego....I was asking what his name was, i.e., Mickey Plush. Tony Plush is one of Morgan's alter ego dudes.... Anyway, I wasn't commenting on whether or not it worked!

Yeah, well, Morgan has some other issues, too -- the alleged fan-punching incident included -- but he is engaging and full of bounce, things we can expect from him.....


This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
