How about stopping the Giants be forced to forfeit their first month of games as punishment for what seems to be an organization wide arrogance towards the sport?

Hell they slammed sumo why not the Giants too!

If there is a silver lining to all of this at least Watanabe-jiji is gone, FINALLY.

They'll surface in a few months as advisors or directors of another company in the Yomiuri group, this is just a temporary move and a 'tatemae' gesture to placate the masses...

Wanderlust is spot on. This resignation is only a temporary deal. The only way Watanabe will relinquish control of YG is upon his death.

It's weird the way they use the word "owner" in Japanese baseball. I remember when he resigned as owner of the Giants. Usually that would mean that he actually owned the team and would then sell them to someone else but the way they used the term made it sound like just another position in the company. Either way this guy is the Dick Cheney of baseball.
