Blogging of baseball has fallen by the wayside as I focus on my first Masters essay, to do with the nature of the Tokugawa state. I’ve also cut my working hours, limiting myself to reading and writing time, and fun time on weekends. Maybe this was a bit drastic- I might be picking up some more tutoring work, but baseball blogging takes up the prime hours of my productive morning reading sessions, so sadly I’ll just be loosely following the Japan Series. Hanshin aren’t in it anyway
