I do think Cora got hung out to dry so that the scandal taint didn't get stuck to ownership or players.

Don't.  Just, don't.  This whole thing is like MAD for baseball fans.  I'm sure pretty much most everybody was at least trying to do this.   But Cora getting his comeuppance isn't something anyone should ever feel bad about.  Ever.

Major League Baseball's plan to play is totally batshit crazy.

No crazier than done of the other plans. But yeah, insane.  And I say that wanting baseball back...

However, according to USA Today’s sources, the concept is gaining support among owners and executives. The games would be played without fans, and split the entire league into three divisions according to geographical location — East, Central and West — with 10 teams each. Teams would only play other sides in their respective divisions until the start of the playoffs.

How?  There is literally zero alternative intention beyond "I want to make money" to think this is a good idea.  It is so blatantly, fragrantly stupid I'd expect to hear it from an illegitimately elected Georgia governor.

If I had photoshop skills, I'd stretch a dugout the entire way to the fences, then stick four families per section in the seats. Tickets given out in groups of 4 from a lottery system, no re-selling allowed. Boom! Local baseball baby! 

Okay, fine, I'm getting a bit desperate here.

Someone give me a KBO team to root for. I'm leaning Doosan Bears after seeing their mascot, but I'm open to other options.

I’m still deciding between the Doosan Bears and the NC Dinos.

Where is the best place to start researching teams?  And grab the swag gear...?

I’ve mostly just been asking my beautiful baby boy Hyun-jin. He know a lot about this stuff.

Been thinking about changing my allegiance to either the Hanwha Eagles or SK Wyverns. Wyverns have slightly cooler gear, but the Eagles helped to make my darling child Hyun-jin big and strong.

At least when I lived there, the Hanhwa Eagles were my backup team and they were abysmal. I learned tons of their chants/songs going to their games and getting drunk with the Korean girl I should have married. The team even came out of the dugout and apologized to their fans after a particularly brutal loss.

Go for 'em. They're good fun.

Forever fuck the Lotte Giants. They had a thing at their games where they gave plastic bags to all the fans to wear on their heads as balloon hats. Tens of thousands of orange plastic bags for no purpose but to be fashioned into little bubble hats with the handles around the ears and then thrown into the bins. Every. Single. Game.

LG Twins are my jam, just as the MN Twins are :D

There may be a team called The Twins, but the Dino's are our team comp.

Just give me some pornographic bat flips and I'll root for you. 

Also, per a previous edition of the Kimes Times, baseball in Korea sounds so much more fun than in the U.S. And you're expected to have fried chicken and beer at games. Sounds like heaven to me.

You are expected to have fried chicken and beer. And there are cheerleaders and festive songs and whatnot. And you can get good seats for like twenty bucks.
