The Season Can't Start Fast Enough



Yes, that's Hanhwa ace Ryu Hyeon-jin giving bunny ears to LG ace Bong Jung-geun during the KBO's Media Day on Monday. I think these guys are just about done with spring training.

The pre-season games are over and the real season is set to start on Saturday...yellow dust permitting. Lotte "won" the pre-season by winning 10 of 12 games. Given the state of the Giants, Jerry Royster is going to wish these games counted when he goes in for his next contract negotiation. Assuming he's invited to his next contract negotiation. Samsung came in second with an 8-5 record.

Glad I found your site. I was wondering if you knew where I could find the full season schedule online?

Thanks.

@Gary

I've heard it's supposed to be bigger this year. We'll see what happens when the games start.

@Albert

In English? Good luck. Here's the Korean language link.

Hey buddies. I'll post up an English sched for late March and April regular season games soon.

And how you going to have Kia out of the playoffs with all their hitting.

And Lotte's big bats in the middle of the lineup should have them out of the last 4 for the season as well.

I'm not going to make any fearless predictions because experience shows fearless predictions = future embarrassments.

But props to Aaron for not predicting according to previous year stats like everyone else does.

The bigger strike zone will be interesting. I'm wondering how many guys will get thrown out for arguing balls/strikes...
