Holy smoke. I was curious as to how Albers was doing in Korea. It appears not so good. Well, I suppose he was paid and good for him.

The KBO is apparently an offensive oriented league. They must have field specified ball park dimensions of 230ft. LF, 380ft. CF, and 230ft. RF.

It's not going very well for our adopted son from the Northern Country. I bet Collabello would have 30-40 HR's by this point if he chose to let his dream die and go for the BIG money grab abroad.

Come on Andrew! Let's get that ERA back into the 5.00's!

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Whoa. That's like Arena League style.

Can't you recognize when a fella is trying to sugar coat an epic fail?:)

Another former Twin, Alex Burnett finds himself pitching for the Sioux City Explorers.
He is joined by former Fun Bunch alumni Rene Tosoni.
Both return in August to play the St. Paul Saints.

Apparently it can be a tough transition when you move to the other side of the Pacific, no matter which direction you go. I hope he turns it around and does well.

HR/9, K/9 and BB/9 pretty similar to his Rochester numbers. Could be the defense behind him ;)

Hadn't seen that, Dave. Is his number still going to be retired this summer?
