    At the age of 33, Shinzo Yoshida might have some potential he hasn't realized yet -- if his success at the plate last week is any indication. The Fukuoka shortstop put up some exceptional numbers the past seven days with a .333 batting average. For his efforts Yoshida collected the Pacific League Player of the Week Award.

    He racked up 10 hits in 30 at-bats, 4 home runs and 7 RBI's last week in 6 games.

    This year Nakamura has hit at a .176 clip with 3 hits, no home runs, 0 RBI's and 1 run scored.

    Hawks second basemen Soshu Murayama was hurt running the bases during today's Swallows game and suffered knee tendinitis. He will be laid up about 4 weeks.

    In his season totals Murayama has 1 home run, .294 BA, .378 OBP, 11 RBI's and 15 runs scored. He has played in 27 games.

    Earlier today Fukuoka closer Tsuyoshi Shibata had to leave the game against Tokyo because of an injury. Team officials are reporting that he has a fractured coracoid bone in his shoulder and will miss 5-6 months of play. Shibata was hurt throwing a pitch and was unable to continue playing. He will be evaluated this afternoon by team physicians.

    Thus far this season Shibata has registered 13 relief appearances, worked 11 innings, struck out 8 and issued 3 walks. He has 8 saves with a 3.27 ERA and a 0-2 won-lost mark.

    Out of curiosity how did you get the small picture of Kouki to appear? Anytime I cut and paste in paint after taking a screen shot it always has a huge white background.

    Hawks extend MR Gavin Floyd's contract for 3 years for a total of $600,000. Here is what Floyd had to say about it.
    "I'm nearing the end of my career, but it was awful good of you to respect that and give me a decent contract offer of $200,000. I'm just thankful that I am playing Nippon Professional Baseball League -- caliber baseball, and that the money is there for me to play it."
