The Pro Yakyu Report Vol. 1.22 - Starters vs. Relievers Part I
John E. Gibson claims that the BayStars need to start looking for a new foreign pitcher to get to the closer. I content that relief really isn't the issue. This week I compare the BayStars starters and relievers this far into the season.

I am wondering, with Yokohama's pitcher's ERAs, how much do you think it has to do with the fact that Yokohama Stadium is a batter's park and as opposed to Hiroshima pitchers doing well and they play mainly in pitchers parks.

That sounds like a very good further follow up.

My gut tells me that they aren't any worse on the road than at home. But I'll run the numbers later this week to see.
About

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.
