...and what about the kick in the groin?

When we were in Tokyo in October the Giants had just beaten the Dragons. Wish I would have been able to see a game. They look like fun. If the famous Japanese baseball documentary Mr. Baseball is anything to go by I'll be in for a rip-roarin' time!

OK, who should I root for? I am a Mets fan so I need choking, terrible contracts and an awful front office! I was thinking about Chiba Lotte Marines just because when I was in Tokyo in 2005 Bobby V was the manager and they won.

Holy poo poo, I didn't realize that the Giants haven't lost a home game in three years.

I'm also glad that Kenta Maeda is doing good. I liked him a lot in the WBC.

Does anybody know where one could get NPB stuff besides eBay or having a friend in Japan? If such a place exists.

Dude, I lost a whole loving night trying to find a store in Tokyo that sold NPB stuff. Like snapbacks or even fitted hats for all teams. I couldn't find any but I had no real idea where to look. Every store I came across only had MLB or the Giants. The Tokyo Dome had Giants hats for 9000 Yen that weren't the size I needed and the rest were velcro. It was gonna be for my brother who needs to to be fashionable which is why it had to be either snapback or fitted.

If you find a place post it!

That's really helpful. I had no idea that was the way of things and just assumed it would be like here (US). That's my fault. I could have saved a night of frustration if I knew this!

Oh well.

Really digging the Rakuten selection though, especially that throwback Yakult. Gonna grab that for my brother! Sold out.

Brutal end to that game though, Lotte were one out from making it 9 wins in a row with nobody on and somehow end up giving up a double with the bases loaded

God, us Mets fans have the perfect sister team, I love this team more and more!
