Here's a little KBO primer ahead of the season openers coming up.

The KBO consists of 10 teams:

Doosan Bears, Hanwha Eagles, Kia Tigers, KT Wiz, Lotte Giants, LG Twins, NC Dinos, Nexen Heroes, Samsung Lions and SK Wyverns.

FG (https://blogs.fangraphs.com/get-to-know ... -part-one/ and https://blogs.fangraphs.com/get-to-know ... -part-two/) and Fansided (https://calltothepen.com/2020/04/15/mlb ... -kbo-2020/) have put together "Players to Watch" lists of former big leaguers/names you may know.

Some ex-Mets of note:

Aaron Altherr (NC Dinos)
Chris Flexen (Doosan Bears)
Drew Gagnon (Kia Tigers)


Here are some fun logo's to debate as well:

I sort of liked Gagnon when he was here, so I say let's go Tigers!

Aaron Altherr.

I miss baseball.

But not this much.

ESPN has reached an agreement with the KBO to air games from Korea live. Opening day is tomorrow. More details to come.

ok tell me which team has a nightmare for an owner, is full of likeable guys, and is unusually prone to heartbreak and I’ll root for them. #mets

Doosan is my team. Hopefully Flexen will actually be good over here.

In support of our fellow South Korean NYFS member, Munky00, I say we all support Doosan. Should we start the Top 50 Doosan Prospects list?

Have fun with that! ;)

I do know their 3 allotted foreign players are Flexen, Raul Alcantara, and Jose Miguel Fernandez.

They're also not very Metsian in that they've won the championship 3 of the last 5 years, and the 2 years they didn't win, they lost in the championship.

I've never tried being the fan of a really successful team. Why not try!?

First of many to come.

Phillies writers are all sharing optimism he finds stardom in the KBO, referencing what a good person he was/is. Seems like a good bet to do so in a league where pitch to contact is the approach so as to neutralize his contact issues. Maybe he's got an Eric Thames 2nd act in him.
