Both, but I'd presume more the latter. The latter would lead to the former

Best ballpark food for consumption on a summer day?
Jeff Sullivan

My preference is for things that take a while to get exhausted. So, not necessarily popcorn, but something like popcorn. Something you can pick at for innings, and something you can eat without taking your attention away from the field

There's been a huge range of hitter success from Korea, from the very successful (Thames), to the pretty successful (Kang, Kim), to the not disastrous (Lee), and finally to Byung-Ho. Among those hitters is there any discernible trait that might lead to better projections for Korean hitters in the future?

I think Thames has the quickest load, and therefore the quickest swing
10:56
But even Park, I think, could and should be a fine hitter. There's real power in the KBO, and MLB shouldn't sell it short
All right, I need to get rolling so I can record a podcast

So thank you everybody for hanging out, and I'm sorry for what I didn't or couldn't address. We'll do it again next week at the same time, and until then, be well and have great days
