KBO rankings. Second week of May.

1. Doosan Bears. Won 4, lost 0.

KBO rankings. First week of May.

1. LG Twins: Won 5, lost 1. One of two 5-win teams, we just about place LG over Kia because of the teams they beat this week. NC were, arguably, the hottest team in Korean baseball until they were mauled on Wednesday. Following that, the Twins swept their flatmates in very convincing fashion at a… Continue reading KBO rankings. First week of May.

Seoul Gocheok Dome. In pictures.

In 2016, the Nexen Heroes moved into the Gocheok Dome after their dilapidated and largely unloved Mokdong Stadium was deemed not up to standard for the KBO.

KBO rankings. Week 3. Playoff positions.

1. NC Dinos. Won 5, tied 1. Ominously for the rest of the league, the Dinos have found a bit of form (they are unbeaten in 7 games) and now boast a 12 and 7 record, with one tie. They look the most likely team to overtake the Tigers at the summit and be the… Continue reading KBO rankings. Week 3. Playoff positions.
