It sounds like ESPN is finally calling this like a normal game, which is nice.

Looks like it, yeah. Not surprising, given that the channel rules said from day one it was meant to be korea only

Ah good, the broadcast crew is here to make excuses for why the foreign player isn't pitching well. Apparently the pandemic only effected Casey Kelly.

To be fair, winter ball in Australia -> Korea -> preseason in Japan -> sent home to the USA -> back to Korea w/ two-week quarantine -> KBO Opening Day is probably more inconvenient a winter than a good number of his teammates.

There's a player they were referencing as likely being posted after this year, and I think he's the one because he's a year or so from Asian baseball free agency. If it's the same in the KBO as it is in the Japan then it's after nine full years of service time.

If the KBO really wanted to recreate that crowd look for TV they should have at least one cardboard cutout behind home plate that's on their phone and paying no attention to the game whatsoever.

Only thing I can think of is K rate. Otherwise he hit for high-ish to high OPS at every level with a decent walk rate.

A previous broadcast mentioned his defense as a liability. But still I'd think a guy hitting 30 homeruns at AAA would at least be decent trade material for the Rockies.

I was just thinking this and doing some digging: he was a 16th round pick who was mediocre at best pretty much his entire MiLB career, until last year where he exploded in AAA. Thing was though it happened in the PCL which was notoriously offense happy last year. Scouts don't seem to like him much, apparently even the most favorable recent write-up of his where he was listed as the Rockies' 27th best prospect, the scouting report said he "had AAAA-hitter written all over him."

He's only 25 though so I imagine if he crushes it in the KBO he has a decent shot of jumping back over to MLB.

Popete posted:

my understanding is a combo of defensive liabilities (he's 1B only and not super good at it) and some major struggles against lefties (I think he's something like .230 career avg vs lefties in the minors?)


But yeah, if he does well in the KBO and can show that he can hit lefties decently he's got a real good shot of making it back to the majors someday

I like the visual idea of "de-juicing" a baseball.

Like you put a bunch of balls in a Ron Popeil food dehydrator and they come out all wrinkled and poo poo and BAM fewer home runs.
