It’s the waiting that’s the hardest part for Alex Ramirez. The wait for the next at-bat, for the next opportunity to contribute to the Yokohama BayStars, for another chance to show there is still life in his bat.

The BayStars’ final interleague series of the year, a two-game set at Seibu Dome over the weekend, yielded just one pinch-hit at-bat for Ramirez, and trips to the plate will continue to be scarce as Yokohama returns to Central League competition, where the designated hitter is not used, later this week.
