And Now Our First Trade of the Offseason!

And boy, is it yawn inspiring. Hanhwa has traded pitcher Cho Gyu-su and a PTBNL to the Doosan Bears for infielder Lee Dae-su. Lee posted a .262/.308/.361 in 61 AB's for the Bears. Cho hasn't pitched in a KBO game since 2005. He was with Hanhwa's 2nd league team for a while. He posted a 6.87 ERA and 33 baserunners in 18 1/3 innings of work. Cho won 10 games as a rookie in 2000, but hasn't shown much since.

I'm guessing the PTBNL will have talents such as "is able to put a shirt on in only one try" and "has a pulse," but he must improve "baseball skills."

KBO Fever! Catch it!

The rumor control, here in Daejeon, stated that this trade was made because the Eagles fear that Lee Bum-Ho will end up playing for the Lotte Giants next year.

Ha ha ha. Put a shirt on in one try. Hey thanks for keeping up to date on Korean baseball. I don't know how you find all your info but keep it coming. There are tens of foreigners here that really want to know what's been happening.
