GSKBO Play-off Podcast Special. Lotte Giants v NC Dinos.

On Sunday at 2pm, Lotte Giants will host NC Dinos in an intriguing South-East play-off derby. Lotte surprised everyone this season, finishing third, ahead of their regional rivals. In our first play-off podcast of 2017, Andrew Farrell and Matthew Care look back on an exciting regular season, NC's rather unexpected hammering of SK Wyverns in… Continue reading GSKBO Play-off Podcast Special.

How did your team fare? Here’s our club-by-club summary in 50 words.

So, goodbye 2017 KBO regular season. You were very good, sometimes amazing, and often frustrating. The final day might have been a bit anti-climatic but this was the closest pennant race in history and even up to 6pm, we didn't know for sure who'd be playing SK Wyverns in the wild card game. It started… Continue reading How did your team fare? Here’s our club-by-club summary in 50 words.

GrandslamKBO Podcast Episode 27 – David E. Schultz and the KBO MVP frontrunners.

"This season I've reached two big milestones. I got my one millionth pitch covered, and that entails all baseball from MLB to KBO and so forth. And then about a week later, I recorded my 3000th Major League Baseball game." Ever wondered what a datecaster does? David E. Schultz shares his experiences and career highlights… Continue reading GrandslamKBO Podcast Episode 27 – David E. Schultz and the KBO MVP frontrunners.

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.

GrandslamKBO Podcast Episode 23 – Jake Brigham & Danny Kurtz

"Junior (Lee Jeong Hoo), he's good. Watching him is pretty special....he's not just hitting bad pitchers, he's hitting the best guys that are out there." Nexen Heroes star Jake Brigham is considered one of the very few impressive mid-season pick ups in KBO history. The pitcher joins us this week to discuss the brilliance of… Continue reading GrandslamKBO Podcast Episode 23 – Jake Brigham & Danny Kurtz

Kia meet Doosan and Lotte host NC. Is this the league’s defining week?

On episode 21 of Grand Slam KBO, it was put to Yonhap's Jeeho Yoo that the 2017 season is much more exciting than we could have imagined. Korea was, don't forget, rebounding from a miserable WBC when Israel and the Netherlands stormed the Gocheok Dome and national team suffered an early, embarrassing exit. Six months… Continue reading Kia meet Doosan and Lotte host NC. Is this the league’s defining week?

Independence Day baseball!

I'm sure most of you living in Korea are not working today. August 15th is Independence Day, and that means baseball starts at the slightly earlier time of....eh....6pm! The weather is still too hot during the day for the KBO to even consider a 2pm start, which is a pity, because the earlier games around… Continue reading Independence Day baseball!

An Chi-hong’s dip in form has gone under the radar, but the Tigers should be worried.

When you look at his 2017 stats to date, it seems ludicrous to even pinpoint second baseman An Chi-hong as a ticking time bomb in Kia Tigers' season. The league leaders are without a recognised closer (Friday night in Suwon confirmed this), a reliable bullpen arm and possess two catchers who, despite showing promising early… Continue reading An Chi-hong’s dip in form has gone under the radar, but the Tigers should be worried.

Every win is crucial as the 2017 season moves to the 2 game series.

The 10 clubs that make up the KBO are nearing the home straight as 3 game stands are reduced to two. This is the moment in the season when teams just outside the playoff spots know they have to make a move. Any solid run of victories could be enough to ensure baseball beyond September,… Continue reading Every win is crucial as the 2017 season moves to the 2 game series.
