Notes: Not-so-killer game last night/this morning/tonight/whatever… Groundout, called strikeout, flyout, groundout… I’ve been hearing about how he’s been exaggerating his at-bat mannerisms in these Tokyo games, with the stretching and bat-pointing and whatnot (see above) — not sure if that’s part of his new approach at the plate, or just to delight the Japanese crowds.
