Wang vs. Seo!!!!

In recently announced news, Jae Seo of the NY Mets has agreed to play for his country. In my opinion, this guy is the ace of a Korean pitching staff that includes 6 major leaguers: C.H. Park of the SD Padres, D.S. Koo & Seo with the NY Mets, Sunny Kim & B.H. Kim of the Col. Rockies, and Jung Bong of the Cincy Reds.

Seo is one of the favorites to start against Taiwan in the Baseball Classic opener March 3rd in Tokyo, Japan. In 2005 with the Mets, Seo had an 8-2 W/L record along with a sparkling 2.59 ERA. Check out the rest of his stats here.

In a must-win game for Taiwan, Coach Lin would have to counter with his team's ace: C.M. Wang - assuming that the Yanks give him the green light. H.C. Kuo would probably pitch in relief if and when Wang hits his targeted pitching count limit.

Wang would face a very formidable line-up that includes famed overseas sluggers: H.S. Choi and S.Y. Lee.

The Dodgers now have a full rotation...and a superstar shortstop...and a legitimate utilityman in Nomar....and a stud second baseman....and a VERY seasoned veteran center fielder...only if they could have held on to the most thorough manager in the game...GO DODGERS!!!!
