  1. Barnes replaced Smith at catcher for the Dodgers in the top of the 5th, anyone see why?

  9. This Astros/Angels game is pure torture to watch. 2+ hours in and still only in the bottom of the 4th inning.
  10. He’s comparing it to professional wrestling and their fans interacting during the matches. As for the KBO being dull and you preferring your computer simulations, feel free to no longer tune in. Personally I’m enjoying any opportunity to watch actual professional baseball, learn about a new league, hear commentary from solid broadcasters and get perspective of a different culture. I’ve attended a baseball game in Japan before and it was one of the most unique experiences in my lifetime. So I’ll relish the chance to watch other foreign players play the game I love, if for no other reason
  11. According to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/KBO_League each team is allowed a maximum of 3 foreign players. Also, in 2019, the KBO League capped salaries for new foreign players at US$1 million. Some players are earning slightly more under their current contracts signed prior to 2019. Probably won’t be tuning in again live until the weekend, but I really enjoyed watching last night’s game. It was just good to have baseball on, no matter what league or country it was being played.
  12. Some great storylines for the KBO this season, many of which are covered here: https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29124646/power-rankings-top-players-key-storylines-more-everything-need-kbo-opening-day Some former MLB players whose names you may recognize: Dan Straily, Aaron Altherr, Darin Ruf, Preston Tucker, Adrian Sampson, Byong-Ho Park and Matt Williams as the new manager of the Kia Tigers. Notable players who formerly played in the KBO and now are with MLB teams include Hyun-Jin Ryu, Merrill Kelly, Eric Thames and Josh Lindblom. For now, games will be played with no fans i
  13. Opening day has arrived for the KBO League and today’s NC Dino’s vs. Samsung Lions game is live right now on ESPN from South Korea. On Monday, April 5 ESPN reached a deal to broadcast live 6 games per week: https://espnpressroom.com/us/press-releases/2020/05/espn-reaches-agreement-with-eclat-media-group-to-exclusively-televise-six-live-kbo-league-games-per-week-in-u-s-starting-with-opening-day-on-may-5/ After a slight rain delay (!) the game is underway with ESPN broadcasters Karl Ravech and Eduardo Perez calling today’s play by play. For those desperate for live baseball, look no f
  14. Interesting read: https://www.si.com/mlb/2020/04/10/sports-arent-coming-back-soon
  15. Dealing with an injury to his side, possibly after making a catch in Saturday’s spring training game. Headed to New York to see the Mets team doctor. Does he slip further in drafts with this news? Hopefully it’s not a serious oblique injury. https://www.sny.tv/mets/news/michael-conforto-to-return-to-new-york-to-meet-with-mets-medical-director/313010106
  16. Wish he played more than 2 games next week!
