August 6th - The Wada school of management

Discussion in the Tiger Tails forum
August 6th - The Wada school of management
Ho hum - you have a successful winning side which hammered the opposition despite poor pitching. So what do you do? You change the team and bring in a series of lightweights who even though they do hit against their weak opposition fall miserably short (Fukudome for one). Then you bring on an already demonstrated useless ex-MLB has been (Tateyama) to complete the debacle. Tigers batting had already clawed back one 3 run deficit and came close to pulling back a 4 run one. If Wada hadn't stupidly switched his lineup based on the discredited left/right hand pitcher theory and just picked his hottest batters Tigers would have taken this joke of a Swallows team even with the poor pitching they had. End result Swallows 7 Tigers 6.

Ah, yes. The curse of over-confidence.

I wish it was just that
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.
