The team is made up of mostly young guys. This is their downtime but they're only playing baseball so it can't be too bad. That big fat advertisement on the side of Wright's batting helmet suggests that they are probably making money. :-D
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I think the MLB all-stars are 1-0-1 now. Jermaine Dye hit a 2-Run HR and they won 3-2.

So far, the Japanese team looks to be playing good baseball but that MLB lineup is just relentless with the long ball.
