Time To Start Writing Again

by Patrick Newman (Apr 3, 2013)

Well, it's been a while. Life has kept me hectically busy, but every once in a while I get the urge to express myself creatively by way of printed word again, so I've decided to attempt to begin again.

The change this time around is that what I post will probably be less straight translation of news events, and more commentary and writing writing. I hope I turn out to be good at it.

Here's what I have in mind for the next couple months:

  • The influx of rookies into NPB and the true changing the guard it signifies.
  • Tomohiro Anraku and the cautionary tales of Koshiens passed.
  • How Nippon Ham persuaded Shohei Ohtani to remain in Japan and whether it will work or not.
  • How to become a consumer of Japanese baseball without speaking a word of Japanese.
  • The pending internationalization of NPB.
  • The Major League futures of Masahiro Tanaka and Yoshio Itoi.
  • More Yakyu Nihongo lessons.
  • Finally follow up on this post from 2009.
  • Some reflection on my  baseball "expertise".
  • Some reflection on my experience writing and developing a following.
  • (Baseball) stuff I find on various 2ch/matome sites, which I have become fascinated by.
  • How not to suck at programming. Or, at least, sucking less at programming.

We'll see how it goes.
