Free Agent Grab Bag Part II

That was fast. Only five free agents remain after about 10 days of free agency.

The biggest moves came over the weekend. Nexen spent big and signed LG outfielder/first baseman Lee Taek-geun to a four-year, 5 Billion won contract.

LG also lost reliever Son Shin-yeong to Hanhwa in a 3-year, 1.3 billion won deal.

Lotte reliever Lim Kyeong-wan signed with SK in a three-year deal worth 1.1 billion won.

Lee Dae-ho announced his intention to pursue a career overseas. It's been speculated that the NPB's Orix Buffaloes will be the team to land Lee. Lee rejected a four-year deal worth 10 billion won from the Lotte Giants over the weekend. It's believed Orix has offered a two year, 7 billion won deal.

Samsung's Jeong Dae-hyeon is looking to be the first KBO player to jump to Major League Baseball. Jeong claims nine major league teams have inquired about him.

The only other remaining free agents are Doosan corner infielder Kim Dong-ju(he's been a free agent for each of the past three years and always re-signs with Doosan for a one-year deal), LG catcher Cho In-seong and SK reliever Lee Seung-ho(the one who wears #20).

Finally, the NC Soft Dinos unveiled their new uni's last week and they're suprisingly tasteful. They didn't put a big, goofy cartoon dinosaur on them. I really can't believe it.
