Back to back home runs have been hit, a bat has been flipped, and I can't stop smiling.

Dinos third baseman is responsible for making me realize "Oh God I can't stay up past four to watch this every night." Thanks for the thread watch, this was a lot of fun. I missed baseball a lot, the KBO seems dope.

Watching the rebroadcast. Broadcasters are discussing how spitting is banned in KBO at that moment we get a close up of the batter spitting.

I think I'd rather just have subtitles of the Korean broadcasters than listen to ESPN again.

I think this is a pretty good draft class overall. It's really shaping up that way because of the water types.

Yeah I am trying to watch it and it annoys me that they are talking about Korean baseball as a concept instead of the game itself

All of the KBO games are on Twitch, with bonus Korean commercials. Since it's Twitch, you can see it live if you're awake, or it automatically creates replays for you to watch later.

Because. It's not all that much different than soccer leagues where every team plays every other team twice but they still have playoffs for things after the end of the season.

Mel Mudkiper posted:

Well...Yeah! That's Coronavirus broadcasting in a nutshell. It's also why I'm surprised that they didn't just pick up the CPBL broadcasts because all ESPN literally would have had to do was put the feed (they've been using English-language commentators) on one of their channels.

So what we've learned from the first two innings of tonight's ESPN game is that not only have this year's balls been "de-juiced" but actually this is the first year the league has used a uniform-standard ball across all games.

Royalty is a continuous shitposting motion.

I have to figure that in a couple weeks they'll have gotten over there "wow, what are things like in Korea and their league!" They're already better after one day of not talking over each other. I'm just so happy to have any baseball back.

I like their playoff system for a 10 team league.

They did get a lot better on day 2, but the portions where they have the picture-in-picture with the announcers taking up 1/3rd of the screen are inexplicable. It's still baseball, I'm not sure why it being Korean means we would want to look at the play by play guys. Alas it is a national baseball broadcast and doomed to be terrible in fundamental ways.

I like the idea but it seems really gimmicky. The top seed getting an automatic berth to the World Series (Korean Equivalent) seems way too good.

For those who haven't watched, there are five playoff teams, seeded by record. I think they mentioned that the tiebreaker was head-to-head in the past, but is different for this season (and if so, I didn't catch how).
Round 1 (best of 3): #4 vs #5 (#4 starts with 1-0 series lead)
Round 2 (best of 3): Round 1 winner vs #3
Round 3 (best of 5): Round 2 winner vs #2
Round 4 (best of 7): Round 3 winner vs #1

edit: I thought this was N/V, sorry for the extreme pedantry in a thread where people have probably watched

It's probably the novelty of "look at these guys you recognize, you can see their houses!" I'm hoping it disappears too.

That's not unique to these recent KBO streams, ESPN seems to think that anybody watching isn't actually interested in the game of baseball being played. National MLB games they have also feature constant cuts back to the commentary booth to show off the crew's mugs or picture-in-picture interviews that cause them to completely miss the actual events of the game. TBS and Fox aren't great but at least they show you the actual loving game, albeit with poo poo commentary. ESPN is atrocious because you can barely see the game you tuned in for between all their bullshit.

If anyone is actually trying to follow KBO more closely than the games being shown on ESPN, I found this reddit post that worked for me to watch today's Dinos game (and probably any other KBO game):
