Let's take a look at the week ahead. The week ahead is week 20 for this season in the KBO.
Hanhwa at Nexen
The two bottom feeders face off for second last place. The Heroes have 5 games in hand and 7 less wins. A series win plus a few winning series will have Hanhwa looking up at Nexen.
LG at Doosan
Battle of Jamsil with different implications than what we've been used to seeing. LG fans are mad and Doosan fans are madder. Both teams may sit out this post-season.
Giants at Kia
Lotte's offense is red hot but so is Kia's pitching. Yoon Suk-min will not lose a third game in a row and his start in this series will be the game of the week.
Samsung at SK
2010 Korean Series re-match. We will see what Samsung is made of.
Hanhwa at Doosan
Doosan had trouble with Hanhwa in their two game series last week. Doosan will have trouble again.
Kia at Nexen
Series sweep for Kia and the series to skip for this weekend. Shim Soo-chan will lose again.
LG at Samsung
Will Samsung still be #1 at this stage? Will LG be in playoff positioning by this stage? How about Doug Mathis? Will he keep his hot mini streak alive or will he feel the wrath of what KBO bats can do?
SK at Lotte
Choice match up for the weekend. We will see what Lotte is made of. It's funny how even in third place, the true test for a KBO team is how they perform against SK.
