Samsung Lions win Asia Series

Samsung Lions pitcher Jang Won-Sam yielded only one run in the final game of the 2011 Asia Series baseball tournament Tuesday as his team beat Fukuoka Softbank Hawks 5-3.

The right-handed starter allowed five hits to the Hawk batters and struck out three others before he was replaced in the seventh inning during a playoff attracting more than 4,000 fans in the Taiwanese city of Taichung.

The UEFA Champions League it isn’t, but it still is, to the best of my knowledge, the highest-quality league of baseball champions outside of the Caribbean World Series (and even then, it probably is higher quality than the Carib WS, since so few MLBers go there anymore).

I don't know, I bet the Cardinals could take them. Maybe even the Rangers.

Several hours and a couple more readings later, I understand what Gamingboy was trying to say. "League of baseball champions" - ah, got it, they qualified through their domestic leagues.
