good stuff. I think there was 0 this morning. --Pti 13:45, 11 Sep 2005 (EDT)

Jim Albright posted pics of some Japanese greats at http://www.baseball-fever.com/showthread.php?t=52223 - I'm not an image person. Does someone want to transfer them here? - --Mischa 08:25, 18 October 2006 (EDT)

We're up to 1,000 players! A fair number are stubs or incomplete but I'd guess that 50% are mostly complete - --Mischa 16:11, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

1,100. Slower growth as we've been focusing on other countries but it's starting to pick up again I think. - --Mischa 13:09, 3 November 2008 (EST)

1,250. 150 in 11 months is a big improvement over the 100 in 15 months we had in the last stretch. - --Mischa 11:55, 9 October 2009 (EDT)

1,400. 150 in the last 7 months - the pace is picking up. - --Mischa 12:55, 27 May 2010 (EDT)

1,500. - --Mischa 16:15, 8 November 2010 (EST)

1,600. - --Mischa 11:11, 13 April 2011 (EDT)

Over 1,700 at some point. - --Mischa 11:54, 2 March 2012 (EST)

Takeshi Yamakawa makes it 1,800. Looks like we're at about 100 per year for a few years now. - --Mischa (talk) 13:47, 11 July 2013 (EDT)

Yataro Oishi brings us to 1,900 - --Mischa (talk) 11:53, 11 February 2014 (EST)

Up to 2,000 with Shinjiro Hiyama - --Mischa (talk) 13:55, 20 February 2015 (EST)

Takao Sato gets us to 2,100; keeping up the 100 per year pace for pretty much the past five years. - --Mischa (talk) 13:26, 1 January 2016 (EST)

How many guys have played in NPB total? How many more do we need to go before each of them have articles? Alex (talk) 17:50, 15 January 2016 (EST)

I'm guessing we're about halfway there, but that's just a very rough estimate. The fact that we just got a former home run king (Sato) means they're likely lots of bench warmers, let alone All-Stars, left. Checking the Michael Eng database, there were 8,162 players through 2012, so we're just over a quarter of the way. - --Mischa (talk) 09:05, 18 January 2016 (EST)
