고마워요

For those who do not recognize the title (or can't read it all together), that's Korean for "Thanks", as in Thanks, Korea, for keeping Venezuela out of the WBC finals and preventing Luis "Harry Pelotas" Sojo from even thinking about losing his mind and bringing in Frankie Rodriguez for a four, five, seven, or fifteen out save against the USA/Japan winner in the finals on Monday.

You know that Sojo has designs on softening Frankie up so that he can come out of retirement and hit another 15 hop single up the middle against him and blow up another World Series.

So thanks. Now Frankie can rest up, and maybe we don't have to worry about his violent arm motion until Opening Day. And speaking of violent arm motions ...

Chad Bradford just winced.

Eh..I think I'd rather have a USA v Venezuela matchup than Korea.

K-Rod is/will/would've been fine. If the guy wears down, it'll be because he was going to wear down (or because of last year's IP) not because he pitched an extra 1 or 2 innings in the WBC. (Besides, if he'd been overworked yesterday, he wouldn't havebeen available monday)

Some guys need more work to get into a rythem. I think the pitching and th competitiveness of the WBC only helps K-Rod..and he has two weeks from tomorrow to be ready for Opening Day anyway.

May I ask why?

Obviously this has something to do with the tournament, which I haven't watched today, so I need to be enlightened.

number15 said...

yes, it is tournament related. he's just a terrible announcer. if no one shares the sentiment then his name should not be in the running

Metstradamus said...

LOL. I thought it was something specific.

i think raftery's a great announcer. yea, he's a bit loud, but he actually analyzes the game, unlike dickie SCREAM MY LUNGS OUT SO MAYBE YOU'LL CARE ABOUT WHAT I HAVE TO SAY vitale. jay bilas is okay but he's a huge ACC homer
