  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Interesting read: https://www.si.com/mlb/2020/04/10/sports-arent-coming-back-soon
  4. 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
  5. Wish he played more than 2 games next week!
  6. Lessss goooo Dame, need you for the playoffs!
  7. Can afford to hold through the week, this old vet (lol) has been very good to his owners and earned some patience
  8. Is the groin tightness anything to be overly concerned about?
  9. Is Aquino likely to start the season in the minors?
  10. Dame is pissed!! And rightfully so. What a joke!
  11. Lots of potential but what are we expecting from Brendan McKay in 2020? 2019 saw him debut and throw 49 innings total, showing some flashes of great potential (7 K's against Toronto with zero walks over 3 2/3) but also some rough outings and experiencing shoulder fatigue while in the minors. All in all it wasn't a great first showing in the majors so how do you think he'll perform this season? Will he be used as a starter, reliever, bulk innings eater? Don't forget the Rays will want to get his bat in the lineup some days too, so does that impact his pitching availability? How does he profile
  12. Curious if the Aquino pick by @jfazz23 at 103 was made before the Castellanos news?
