I have to go to Pohang this afternoon for a "Teacher's Field Trip." Teacher's field trips are just like children's field trips except they have a lot more alcohol. We're probably going to eat raw fish. I like raw fish, but raw fish in Korea destroys my guts. I think it has to do with chemicals in the water. Just my guess.
This story is actually a little sad. KIA Tigers 38 year old righty, Jeong Min-tae, has called it a career. Jeong finished his 15 year career with 124-96 record, a 3.48 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and Korean Series MVP awards in 1998 and 2003.
I'd love to give each game it's full write up, but I've got to catch a bus to Pohang. Sadly, just scores, winners, losers and game balls.
