“*(censored)*!” For the first time, I raised my voice. Never--in my entire life--had I yelled like I had after this utterly embarrassing loss. “Is this some kind of *(censored)* joke to you guys?” The room was silent. “That was a shameful performance today. PARTICULARLY by the bullpen, who, it seems as usual, blew the lead THREE times in the last THREE innings. Letting up FIFTEEN runs in the final three frames is… I…” my mouth stumbled as I searched for more words, “This is just--I can’t even fathom how this could happen.”

I looked around the clubhouse to see the faces of the players actually looking back at me. I’m sure they were just as surprised as I was that I could be this upset.

“This is perhaps the most disappointing, embarrassing game I have ever had the displeasure being a part of.” I sighed. “If there’s anything good to be said, it’s that the offense continues to shine despite troubles in every other aspect of our game. And Sato…” His indifferent expression remained unchanged as I singled him out, “congrats on that first homerun.”

I noticed Suzuki getting up to leave.

“Sit down.” I said in his general direction.
He didn’t hesitate to get in my face, “Your skinny ass doesn’t tell me what to do. Besides, this little diva act doesn’t really work for you, kid. Give it up.” He pushed me aside and pushed open the locker room door.
“...*(censored)* you.” I said to the door as it closed.

“Everyone else… Go home. No practice tomorrow. Not that any of you would *(censored)* should up anyways.” I began walking to my office, “Dismissed!” I said to hasten their exit.

The rest of the players filtered out, and I slipped into the dingy office. The chair squeaked when I sat down. I put my head in my hands.

“What the hell am I supposed to do?”

The room provided no response.

“I can’t possibly fix this…”

Sounds like it'd be best for the team to get Suzuki out of the clubhouse permanently.

That would certainly help things out...

Without the DH rule, Suzuki's career would have been over a long time ago. He's been anything BUT clutch all year. He seems impossible to trade.
I'm curious what everyone's batting stats are. Will they be shown at the end of the season?

First he needs pitchers XD Go back to the beginning of his Osaka Foxes tenure and see how abysmal his pitching staff truly is.
"Pitching better" is really not all that much possible.

With that said, probably best to draft pitchers exclusively this year and use F/A for fielders (though I'm not sure how you want to handle managing the team in a realistic manner going forward)

I am curious though whether you intentionally play the games on highest difficulty or just only control the game as a manager (pitcher swap/pinch hitter/pinch runner etc...) and watch the cpu vs cpu play the game out. There's been so many games where your team has given up 20+ hits.

only fifteen runs in the last three innings. Are you the orioles now? Are you trying to find ways to lose?

My eyes snuck open. It was all real… Not some nightmare I can just push away. I was up, but I wasn’t ready to be awake.

3L Apartment Complex, Unit 318, Kobe
13:44


“Shit!” I ripped myself away from dully scrolling down the news feed on my phone. “‘These Three Superfruits Will Save Your Skin. Literally!’ is going to have to wait. I can’t spend the whole damn day in bed. I dragged off my covers, slipped on my slippers and shuffled to the bathroom to get ready for a day I didn’t have any plans for other than not being at home.

September 13, 2036
Ikuta Shrine, Kobe
14:39


“This has been standing since the third century, did you know that?” An older man, taller than me and dressed in a blue button-up shirt and khakis, told me as I stood in awe of the great Ikuta Shrine. He had glasses on a string around his neck.
“I didn’t know that, no. That’s pretty amazing.”
He put his glasses back on. “Truly, it is. They say the goddess Wakahirume rests here, do you believe that?”
“Huh?”
“The goddess Wakahirume. It is said she wove the clothes of Amaterasu. Or perhaps she was her daughter… It’s unclear. Nonetheless, Empress Jingū built this shrine in her honor.”
“Wow.”
He shifted his focus from the shrine itself onto me. He looked me over, seemingly studying me. Or maybe, more apt, he was studying my physical presence. “How old are you, young man?” he finally asked.
“32.” I replied, sort of taken aback.
“Enjoy yourself. You’re living your best years, and they only get better from here.”
“...Thank you. I really appreciate that.”
“Everyone needs a pick-me-up day sometimes. I know whenever I do, I come here and talk to Wakahirume. It’s amazing how good a listener someone who can’t speak back is.” He laughed a quiet, reserved laugh, “Find your peace, young man, and you may as well be walking amongst the gods.”
He extended his hand, “Have a glorious day, Mr…?”
I met his hand with mine, “Oh, uh! Azuma. Ryu Azuma.”
“Ohoho, a powerful name! Thank you for listening, Mr. Azuma.”

He left before I was able to get his name. Rather than ruminate on a potential missed opportunity for a sagely father-figure, I began to roam around the Ikuta Shrine. This small sanctuary among towering office buildings brought calm to my stormy mind.

What’s my problem? Baseball? What is that in the grand scope? It’s nothing much. I made my way to the small stream that runs through the shrine. My problems are miniscule on the cosmic scale and really… that means I have nothing to worry about, right? But it is my job and I have to do well at my job, or else I’ll get fired. So maybe I do have to worry about it… Maybe it’s good I’m worrying? Nah, it can’t be good to worry. I continued my walk around the shrine, not completely paying attention to where I was going. It’s just so goddamn frustrating that nothing I’ve tried has worked so far. Not that I’ve really even tried much. I just… damn I wanted this to go smoother. This isn’t what I thought was going to happen at all. The Archers working out so well didn’t help. Hah! That’s a weird one, “working out so well didn’t help.” But shit, it’s true.

I snapped out of my head back at the main entrance of the shrine. There was a familiar face looking back in my direction.

“Uhh… Tsuzumi?”

It's kinda unreal using a 3/F/C/G guy as the cleanup hitter lol, but here we are! I'll have a stats update at the end of the season, which, holy shit, is rapidly approaching.

Our pitching is almost on a different level of bad, playing with them is so gd tense lol. Honestly though, it's kinda fun to get demolished, since it fits in fiction heehee

The free agent pool in Japan, or well at least in JPPY, is usually very small so I'll take what comes there.

I'm playing on the second highest difficulty atm, which is a bit too high for the skill level of the players on the team, but I play all the games I highlight myself so they're all legit. Those 20 hits are just... kinda a part of Foxes life now lol
