Meet the Newest Chiba Lotte Marine



Hanhwa 1st baseman, Kim Tae-gyun, has signed a 3-year, 700 million yen contract with the Chiba Lotte Marines. Kim ends his 9-year KBO career with 188 homers, a .310 batting average and 701 RBIs. The new Hanhwa manager was last seen headbutting his head against a wall. He was...unavailable for comment.

Hanhwa fans, don't despair. The Eagles re-signed veteran outfielder Kang Dong-woo with a 1-year, 100 million won contract.

Also, outfielder Park Jae-hong will be back with SK next season for 400 million won.

Was he banging his head against the wall to avoid a likely beating by Hanhwa's infamous Chairman Seung-youn "Brass Knuckles" Kim?

Oh NO! I'm so very sad that he won't be knocking balls over the walls of Moodeung Stadium and spanking my Tigers any more! Hee hee hee! But I like this guy and hope he does well in Japan.
