Are games typically at 7:00 PM local time?
   3. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 04, 2020 at 10:41 AM (#5947312)
It looks like the times vary a lot. The only schedule I've seen is in Korean, so I'm not sure. But it's not like Taiwan where all the games are the same times (6:30 a.m. est weekdays, 5 a.m. EST weekends)

The Opening Day games (tomorrow) start at 2:00 PM Seoul time, 1:00 AM New York, 10:00 PM Los Angeles.

the 10 teams include Lions, Tigers and - naturally, Bears.

also Eagles, Heroes, Giants, Twins, Wyverns, and Wiz.

plus the Dinos - though the Unicorns (and the Raiders) no longer exist.

based on their histories (will crowd-source a couple):

Tigers = Yankees. have the most titles and used to dominate, but not so much of late.

Lions = Cardinals. lots of titles and always seem to in the mix.

Bears = Red Sox. used to be meh but have won a lot of late.

Wyverns = Giants. dominant from 2007-12 but have faded since.

Twins = .... Twins. have a couple of titles from BITD but tend to be irrelevant.

Giants = ??? nice squad in the 1980s and 1990s but fugheddabout it since.

Heroes = ??? expansion team that has never won but got close recently.

Dinos = Mariners. lesser version of the heroes.

Eagles = Cubs. one title in all these years.

Wiz = ----. first-year team.

10 years ago we had a thread that started with a photo of the Woori Heroes mascot looking like he was also the manager.

Either I'm an idiot or the post above mine got edited after I posted. Safe bet is the former, especially on a Monday morning.

Reds? I guess they've had at least a few playoff games since then, but they might be the closest comp.

Given those start times, perhaps WJ could reprise his decades-old “how to program a VCR” lesson mentioned in the Chinese thread? Asking for a friend.

Actually, those games probably don’t really do it for me, and I’m not much for catch-up-later viewing, although I might sample the 1:00 AM game. Hopefully not too addictive. I do read the China thread - good to see some are enjoying baseball.

Based on the description in #7 above, I'm more confident than ever that the Twins are my team. I'd seen some comparisons to the Cubs and I didn't love that. (I just don't care for the Cubs. Never have. Can't tell you why.)

Odrisamer Despaigne is on the KT Wiz, which is disappointing. He has all the letters in "San Diego Padres" in his name, but only one of the letters in "KT Wiz".
   13. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: May 04, 2020 at 05:05 PM (#5947570)
I assume the Wiz will be changing their name to Some Red Page Drains or something.

“how to program a VCR”

I think I wished I could convert a Twitter link into a DVR. that is my only link to the Taiwan games that I know of.
   15. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 04, 2020 at 07:58 PM (#5947618)
I'm.loving the Taiwanese League but it will be nice to have more of a variety of teams to watch
   16. JJ1986 Posted: May 04, 2020 at 08:56 PM (#5947633)
Wiz = ----. first-year team.
It looks like this is their sixth season.
   17. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: May 05, 2020 at 01:04 AM (#5947729)
Oh, for crying out loud, a rain delay??
   18. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 05, 2020 at 02:22 AM (#5947734)
The game was delayed by rain for than more than 30 minutes. Karl Ravitch & Eduardo Perez are doing the broadcast remotely from their homes. Keeping them almost constantly on camera is probably a mistake. They have both somehow lost the picture now, although it stayed OK for me. Lowered expectations are probably in order given the circumstances, but this doesn’t do that much for my MLB fix.
   19. Jefferson Manship (Dan Lee) Posted: May 05, 2020 at 02:11 PM (#5948019)
I enjoyed the game, but Ravech low-key whining about it being the middle of the night got old in a hurry. Yes, Karl, we know it's late.

Matt Williams is the Kia Giants manager, while Dan Straily is pitching for the Lotte Giants.

I wonder if this gets Straily another gig back here this summer.

This Lindblom interview is painful and eternal. Why do they think we want to hear this rather than actual game commentary? If you've got a freaking KBO MVP in your virtual "booth" why not have him give you color commentary on the actual game? Christ, what time does the CPBL start? I miss Wayne and Dick.
   23. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 10, 2020 at 01:30 AM (#5949134)
Deeply disappointed that Marlins Man’s likeness isn’t among the cardboard cutout ‘fans’ behind home plate.
   24. The Yankee Clapper Posted: May 17, 2020 at 02:03 AM (#5951382)
I don’t see any spectators, but ESPN seems to have added a hum of crowd noise for tonight’s broadcast.
