The Eri Yoshida coverage ramps up

The deluge of media coverage on Eri Yoshida's Tuesday start in Victoria is underway:
  • Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail talks to Chris Van Rossum of the Seals about facing Eri Yoshida. At this rate, by the end of the season the Victoria Seals will have better coverage in the Globe than the Toronto Blue Jays.
  • Yoshida and Demetrius Banks chart the game on Monday night
  • The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix has picked up Cleve Dheensaw's article on Yoshida, which includes a discussion with Tim Rodriguez on his now-famous strikeout against the Knuckle Princess earlier this year.
  • The Winnipeg Free Press has carried a Canadian Press article on Yoshida. Included in the article are comments from Brian Rios of the Seals. Apparently, Tuesday's game was already close to a sellout when the story was written.
  • The Globe also reprinted an Associated Press article on Eri, but there isn't anything noteworthy in this piece.
Eri Yoshida peers over the dugout fence to watch Monday's game. "Can we get a milk crate over here?!?!"
