Episode 60 – Koi Kudari (Taking Down the Carp)

FYI – Koi Nobori is a type of carp streamer that people put up during Golden Week. Hanshin took down the carp, hence, Koi Kudari. In Episode 60, T-Ray shares the latest team news, recaps the 6 games over the past week (3 @ Swallows, 3 vs. Carp), chooses a player of the week, a Wacky Tomoaki of the week, and then for the hot topic, he looks at the importance of walks, and the relative unimportance of defense. (Time constraints mean editing parts of the show out!) Do you think bad defense will stop Hanshin from succeeding this season? Why? Send us an e-mail (thehanshintigers@gmail.com) with your opinion. The show ends with T-Ray’s fearless predictions about the upcoming 5 games (2 @ Giants, 3 @ BayStars).
