Seeking Korean Speakers, and Looking at the O's
Have you ever listened to a Jim Bowden sound bite and got the sense that he was saying something really important, but you just didn't understand what it was? Never have I had that sense more acutely than when viewing Distinguished Senators today. DS found Nats-related cartoons from his absolute favorite Korean baseball cartoonist, and posted them for all to see, and yet I don't necessarily understand who's saying what, and why. Either you could make me feel better by making up fake captions, or you could be an actual Korean speaker and tell us what the text really says. Your choice. I'll only post the Bowden cartoon here, forcing you to go to the DS item to see the Dmitri Young cartoon.
To pad this post, let's quickly compare your 2007 Washington Nationals with your 1988 Baltimore Orioles. Remember them, with the 0-21 record and all that? Svrluga, read hints from Richard Justice here.
Anyhow, through nine games:
Runs Scored: Nats 21, Orioles 14
Hits: Nats 73, Orioles 52
Errors: Nats 11, Orioles 10
Runs Allowed: Nats 61, Orioles 62
ERA: Nats 6.15, Orioles 6.66
Hits Allowed: Nats 90, Orioles 99
Walks Allowed: Nats 46, Orioles 30
See? In almost every category, the Nats are not quite as bad as the worst-starting team in MLB history!
