Brazelle has made a great start to his Hanshin career, even if we’ve been on the receiving end of some pummellings recently thanks to Mayumi’s crap management.

As I type he’s batting at 0.344, with 5 homers and 8 RBIs from 9 starts. Yesterday him and Arai both hit homers to see us squeeze past Nippon Ham 4-3.

As my time in Korea is drawing to a close I thought I’d write a long piece about Japan vs Korea as countries, cultures and places to live. That’s in the pipeline.
