Podcast Episode Forty-Nine: Korean Baseball (KBO)

Thanks for listening to this week’s episode of the Baseball Together Podcast, baseball family! Make sure you watch all the way to the end this week because we have a special discount code for you!

There was a bunch going on this week, so Brig and Brad had a lot to go over. So, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported that there is at least one MLB team that has told its front office to cut payroll for the 2021 season (1:16). Along those lines, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Joe Musgrove says he doesn’t believe players should have to take a pay cut during the 2020 season simply because there will not be any fans in the stands, because they “don’t get a pay raise for sellouts.” (5:48) Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper believes that MLB should allow its players to play in the Olympics, specifically the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo (8:56). Finally, the MLB draft has been set on five rounds, but we still don’t know when it’ll happen (14:00).

The guys spend the rest of the time fawning over the KBO (Korean Baseball League) because it’s the only live baseball showing on American TV. They start by breaking down some rules and cultural differences between the KBO and MLB (21:25), then give a quick breakdown of each KBO team (47:32).
