Report Card

It can be said easily and openly that this Tokyo team is an experiment, a test. The question is simple: how do the best of the Japanese baseball history stack up against the best of American baseball history? The jury is still out but the season is far enough along for an interim report card of sorts. The straight up and down is basic: wins and losses. At the time of this writing the tally is 23 W's and 23 L's, a .500 mark and 2 games behind the division leader. Perhaps more important is the fact that Tokyo is #1 in the Wild Card race, as no other second place club in the Union League has a .500 record! So if things progress as they have, Tokyo has a good shot at squeaking into the playoffs -- and that would be a successful season no matter what else transpired. But let's look at the rest of the picture.

Strike 3Pitching. The experts expected that pitching would be this team's strong suit. While a couple of the greatest all-time Japanese pitchers are missing from this roster, there is no doubt that the staff reads like a roll call of the Japanese Hall of Fame. All Time Wins Leader, lefthander Masaichi Kaneda (4-2, 4.23, 3CG, 2 SHU) had a rough start but settled in very quickly and has shown he still has the knack at accumulating victories.

Iron Man Jiro Noguchi (4-3, 2.52, 4CG, 1 SHU) has not been as dominating as some thought he would be, but Noguchi has not disapointed either. He won't get the opportunity to overwhelm these batters as he did his countrymen in his day, but he has pitched well enough to stand proud.

Hawaiian-American Bozo Wakabayashi (4-3, 2.38, 2 CG, 1 SHU) never got the chance to play in the American Majors because he, like Cool Papa Bell, was born too early. At a later date Lenn Sakata would play for Milwaukee, Baltimore, Oakland & the Yankees without anyone even commenting that he was a Hawaiian-born Japanese-American like Wakabayashi. In this All Time League Wakabayashi is making up for lost time, and not only pitching good games but at this juncture has a .500 batting average (8-16) with a home run, a double and 8 RBI. He is clearly not intimidated by his opponents.

Bonus Baby Suguru Egawa (1-3, 4.12, 1 CG) is having a bit of trouble with opposing batters, and is not finding the way out of the big inning. The word is that he will find himself doing setup work until, and if, he can master this league's hitters. As well, forkballer Shigeru Sugishita (0-3, 5.56, 1CG) has been completely off the mark, almost as bad as The White Russian, Victor Starffin ( 2-2, 6.40). Starffin has found himself down in the Minors in favour of power pitcher Tadashi Sugiura (3-1, 1.98).

The relief corps is a bit unsettled, with a new decision forthcoming between Mr. Zero, Shingo Takatsu (2-1, 1.17, 1 Sv) and Strikeout Artist Yutaka Enatsu (2-3, 5.40, 6 Sv, 3 Hld). Enatsu was given the chance to the team's closer, and intially did very well. But lately he has had control problems and has seen his ERA balloon up. Therefore, Mr. Zero will now be given a shot at closer. The rest of the staff has performed relatively well, and of special note is Yoshitaki Katori (0-0, 1.57, 1 Hld) who will also be given a larger role in the next phase.

Out at 1stFielding is another area this team was expected to do well in, and like their pitching, has been good enough to win some accolades. Overall they are fourth in the Union League with a team .979 fielding percentage. They are also fifth in double plays turned, and third in Opponent SB% with a .585 mark. Individually, Mr. Shortstop, Yoshio Yoshido (.988) leads all fielders in the most essential of positions, though his hitting (.124), or rather his lack of hitting, has lost him a lineup spot at the moment. In all the other positions Tokyo is well represented, and where the players have enough chances they appear in the Top Ten Lists for fielding. Their opponents have been taking advantage of the average arm strength in the outfield to take the occasional extra base that sometimes proves disrupting, but on the batted ball the defense has performed admirably. At catcher, as alluded to above in Opponent SB%, Tokyo has done exceedingly well so far. Katsuya Nomura has a 1.000 Fielding Pct. in 31 games, Atsuya Furuta is perfect in 19 games, and Tsutomo Ito is perfect in 4 games. Perfect is relative here though, as combined they have no errors but they do own a league-most (tied) 7 passed balls.

Homer!Now we get to the hitting. This is what puts fannies in the seats, or so they would have us believe. I, for one, think that baseball is great because it is an all-around game that encompasses many strategies of offense and defense. But enough of that, here we talk of Tokyo's hitting prowess, or lack of it. We must mention that the greatest batter in Japanese baseball history got away from this team during the draft -- Sadaharu Oh plays for Toronto, along with Iron Man Sachio Kinugasa and others. Even still, the Tokyo team boasts the legendary God of Batting playing first base in Tetsuharu Kawakami. The fiercely nationalistic Kawakami started off the season to raucous booing from the stands as he battled with the Mendoza Line. However, he has shown the tenacity necessary to stick with it, and has slowly crept up almost into the realm of respectibility (.255). The team is counting on him to keep raising that batting average, and doing so in clutch situations. Currently he leads the team in RBI with 25, but that total is rather low compared to other teams as we see the overall ATL leader is Willie Mays of the Newark Eagles with 52 ribbies. Standing just a notch below Kawakami on the team RBI lists is Wally Yonamine with 22. Wally is batting a respectable .286, and has been flirting with .300 at times. He is actually the team leader in batting average at this juncture, as the three players ahead of him (Kawai, Ito & Wakabayashi) have very few plate appearances. Right with Wally is Shigeru Chiba, The Formidable Buffalo, at .284. Chiba started the season on the Disabled List, but has taken over the second base job now that he's back. His current partner in the middle of the field is Chusuke Kizuka, and at .282 Kizuka will keep the job at short if he continues to hit like that. Home run power has been provided by Kaoro Betto (.241), the rightfielder. Betto leads the team with 7 home runs -- the overall ATL Leader is at this point in time is Joe DiMaggio of the Pacific Division rival San Francisco Seals with 18 dingers. Katsuya Nomura (.271) and Shigeo Nagashima (.194) are second on Tokyo with 5 homers apiece. Nagashima, Mr. Baseball, has been a very big disappointment so far. Fans hope he can turn it around like Kawakami did.

FansAnd so we come to the part where we evaluate this team of Japanese Hall of Famers. Yes, it is too early for a definitive statement, but enough games have been played where we can take a good guess at their impact on this All Time League. No doubt they have added some exotic character, and for those of us who like the history of the game, they provide new stories and legends to get acquainted with. The question of conversion, of how they are playing against their Major League and Negro League counterparts is a tough one to answer. As in every baseball issue there are partisans of all sides of the question. But we can say without a doubt that they seem to be competing at a level that most can live with -- the stats they are putting up are not extraordinary in either direction. There are certainly some surprises, but in both directions. They are solid in their fundamentals, which surprises nobody, and they have displayed some expertise in the pitching department, which again surprises none but is a bit more controversial. Their lack of power hitting, and indeed, their lack of hitting for average is again not a surprise, expecially when the two premier hitters, Sadaharu Oh & Ichiro Suzuki, are not on the team. Whether all of this means anything yet is a valid question. And whether anyone cares except their fans . . . well, that can be said of any team. Even the Saint Louis Browns had their loyal fans, no matter how bad things got for them. So here, the fans of the Tokyo Giants will live and die with every win and every loss. And through it all they will have lots of fun, and that's what it is all about.
