  1. So now let’s familiarize ourselves with the Chunichi Dragons, who play in the Central League and are based in Nagoya. The Dragons have a history of winning divisional pennants year after year and then flaming out in the playorfs, which, I suppose, makes them either the Atlanta Barves or maybe (from a more recent perspective) the Gnats of Japanese baseball.
