[Rakuten’s challenge is catcher]

–Following the Central League edition, this time, please give us a summary of the 2021 professional baseball and Pacific League.

RamirezLooking at the Pacific League as a whole, I think Chiba Lotte Marines had a good season. As a result, I lost to Orix Buffaloes in the Climax Series (CS), but this year, the goal of director Tadahito Iguchi, “Baseball that sticks to one point in front of me,” has become clearer. .. With experience as a director, it is conspicuous that he is standing proudly, and the pitchers and fielders are well-reinforced. I think we can expect a lot next year.

――After your 4th year in office, next season will be the 5th year of the game for Director Iguchi.

RamirezI had a good fight this year as well. In CS, which is a short-term decisive battle, the momentum of Orix Buffaloes has surpassed, but I am looking forward to Lotte’s next year, both in terms of strength and position. Personally, I thought the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles was also a good team …

――How did you see Rakuten this year?

RamirezLooking at the starting pitchers before the opening, Takahiro Norimoto and Takayuki Kishi were there, Hideaki Wakui was still alive, and Masahiro Tanaka joined, and it was a luxurious lineup with four proven ace. .. However, it was painful that Mark was concentrated on Hideto Asamura alone because all the foreign players were sluggish due to the hitting line that was a matter of concern.

――Hiroaki Shimauchi was the first RBI king this season, and Takero Okajima and Daichi Suzuki were in the top ten batting averages, but they certainly lacked long hitting ability.

RamirezIf there is no long-distance batter other than Asamura who can expect one shot even if there is a good hitter, the hitting line will not be powerful or scary. That doesn’t pose a threat to the other team. Also, Rakuten’s challenge is catchers.

–Please explain about Rakuten’s catchers.

RamirezHikari Ota, who was in his third year as a professional, played 107 games, veteran Ginjiro Sumitani played 51 games, and Takaya Tanaka, who was in his seventh year, played 31 games. When it comes to leading a strong pitcher team with such a track record, I think it is quite difficult for catchers, but I would like to focus on one person and make a regular catcher. The first may be Ota, but Kazuhisa Ishii will still need patience.
