Only three things in life are certain: birth, deaths, and a KIA Tigers bullpen meltdown

The first mini series of the week is over, and now we head for the Thursday and Friday collection as the season's end gets closer and closer. If there were no rain outs, these were due to be the final midweek regular season games of 2017. Alas, on we power, to October 3rd. That's when… Continue reading Only three things in life are certain: birth, deaths, and a KIA Tigers bullpen meltdown

This season is wide open, and it is likely to be for years to come.

Long before you break down the performance of every team in the 2017 KBO season, and how they've fared against each other, one stat jumps off the page when you're looking at the current standings. That is how many teams have winning percentages above .500. The number currently stands at 7. There are 10 teams… Continue reading This season is wide open, and it is likely to be for years to come.

Time is running out to see the Lion King one more time.

Lee Seung-yeop of the Samsung Lions is retiring at the end of this season, bringing down the curtain on a glittering career. Lee's beloved Lions have struggled all year and won't be playing playoff baseball. So, this… Continue reading Time is running out to see the Lion King one more time.

Munhak Baseball Stadium is much-loved, and it is easy to see why!

There is a highway from Incheon Airport that veers south before Seoul and eventually plants drivers and passengers to a small outpost on the border with Gyeonggi Province called Seoksu. As you make your way further from the airport and away from the new towns scaring the Incheon skyline, there is a stretch of road… Continue reading Munhak Baseball Stadium is much-loved, and it is easy to see why!

KBO observations from the last week of June.

1. A week of mixed emotions I love baseball. I only got into the sport when I moved to Korea in 2009. Before then, my knowledge of the game was virtually non-existent. But last week's LG v Lotte series in Busan tested the patience a little. Not so much in baseball, but in the KBO.… Continue reading KBO observations from the last week of June.

5 talking points from the second week of June: 6/5~6/11.

1. Are we about to see a new team reach the KBO summit soon? Despite a respectable 3 wins from 5 last week, the Kia Tigers' prolonged hold on top spot hasn't look this vulnerable for two months. The reason is that the NC Dinos are absolutely killing it now, winning 5 games last week… Continue reading 5 talking points from the second week of June: 6/5~6/11.

KBO rankings. First week of June.

It has been a busy few days so no time for a proper rankings piece, unfortunately. Here are three observations from the past week. 1. What do SK Wyverns' home run stats really tell us? As part of our podcast series, the topic of SK's ability to hit home runs has regularly featured off and… Continue reading KBO rankings. First week of June.

KBO rankings. End of May

1. Doosan Bears. Won 4, lost 1. Tuesday's game was rained out but otherwise Doosan continued their decent run of form and moved into the top 3 following LG's horror week. The only blip was Friday's loss at home to kt. What made that game interesting was seeing Yoo Hee-gwon pitch another 9 innings having… Continue reading KBO rankings. End of May
