Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 11/16/2012

The above photo that Steve Garvey tweeted yesterday is just awesome.  It features Gil Hodges with a very young Steve Garvey.
Speaking in front of a group of 40 to 50 reporters, most of them South Korean, Boras compared Ryu to only one pitcher: Mark Buehrle.

“Body-type-wise, size-wise, ability, he reminds me a lot of Buehrle,” Boras said.
"Chan Ho was very influential to me and very helpful, and [giving] me insight into playing in the Major Leagues and giving me the dream to play in the Major Leagues," he said. "As a baseball alumni, he's teaching me the ropes." 
He also expresses some confidence:
"Obviously, there's pressure in all of baseball," said Ryu, who has a brother living in New Jersey. "From my experience in Korea, I have no doubt I can succeed in the U.S. American players are bigger. If I think of the way I pitched at Daejeon Stadium, nothing is different about baseball."

  • Wow!  I need to pay attention to the World Baseball classic.  Apparently, the team of my cultural background just blew out the Thailand Baseball team.  The Philippines destroyed them 8 to 2.  Woo Hoo!  Go Team!!  Watch highlights below. (Hat Tip: JayBee Anama at Topps Baseball Card Blog)  I need to find me one of those caps!

  • Unfortunately, my joy quickly turned to sadness as I discovered that Chinese Tapai (Taiwan) destroyed the Philippines early this morning 16 to 0, on a one-hitter.  Boooo!!!  I won't be sharing highlights of this game.
