Talk:Nippon Professional Baseball

From BR Bullpen

Wayne Garrett was hardly a prominent player in NPB. He played two years, hitting .241/.327/.427, never led the league in anything and never was an All-Star, let alone a Best Nine choice. - --Mischa 08:25, 17 May 2007 (EDT)

[edit] Differences in MLB and NPB?

Perhaps a section about the differences, if any, NPB has with MLB. --SelfStudyBuddy 14:54, 14 July 2007 (EDT)

[edit] current stats and standings

Not to divert focus from B-R but a good site for current stats and standings is www.JapanBall.com

It's no diversion; the BR Bullpen does not provide day-to-day coverage of stats and standings and the main BR site only covers MLB. Also Japanesebaseball.com has up-to-date standings and stats. - --Mischa 12:27, 1 August 2007 (EDT)

Roster Size

  • Normal MLB roster is 25 man, what is it for NPB?

There are three rosters for the Ichi-gun team. 25, 28 and 40. You can have 28 men on the "active roster," but only 25 of them may be available for each game (i.e. you can move the SP you just used to inactive after the game to bring in the next day's SP, or whatever.) The 40-man roster are players that can be brought in and out of the Ni-gun, I believe, at will. I'm not 100% clear on the rules for adding and removing players from the 40-man roster. There is also an organizational limit, which I believe is somewhere between 70-80 players who can be signed to a contract. --Crpls 18:55, 17 October 2008 (EDT)
