Twitter Web App : Anne Thériault Jon Shields Ken Burns's documentary. I've seen a couple recs for 8 Men Out in this thread and I would actually discourage that one because it isn't historically accurate and the action scenes feature pretty bad actual baseball playing, even by Hollywood standards.

Twitter Web App : In actual baseball news, the first player reaching the 10 HR mark is always a notable point in the season. Roberto Ramos made it there in just 21 games this year! twitter.com/GawlowskiB/sta…

Twitter Web App : This is great that David Price has reportedly stepped up to help others, and not surprising given his history of charity. twitter.com/FrancysRomero1… It's also embarrassing for the owners who have directed firings and furloughs and 401K cuts, while bearing much more wealth than David

Twitter Web App : In baseball news, Chang Mo-koo threw another gem and Jose Miguel Fernandez is still batting .480.

Twitter Web App : The KT Wiz:

- Are hitting .323/.376/.507 as a team
- Lead the league in runs scored
- Have a 10-7 pythag
- Have had a 7th inning lead or later 14 times in 17 tries
- Are 7-7 in those situations
- Are 7-10 overall
- And have been walked off five times in eight road games

Twitter Web App : Interesting KBO quirk: The four top hitters by wRC+ so far are all foreign players.

The next 30 are Koreans.

Twitter Web App : #KBO note: Mel Rojas Jr. of KT Wiz became just the 2nd player to homer from both sides of the plate in consecutive plate appearances today. Former LG Twin Seo Dong-wook (2008, 2010) had been the only other player to have done so.

Twitter Web App : Players in #KBO are paid in full in 2020 and there were ZERO employee salary cuts/front office downsizing. In fact, possibility of furloughs/pay reductions were not even a conversation. Yes, #KBO teams have much smaller commitments, but #MLB teams made a lot more $ over the yrs
