west coast correspondent Dave Nelson forwarded along this link to a series of baseball cartoons in Korean. some of them focus on teams and player stats, while others are a bit more narrative based (i assume). perhaps youthlarge can shed some light on what exactly is being said in any of them, but regardless of comprehension they're pretty fun to look at, like the Yankees strip where the team appears to be watching porn in the box labeled "Alex Rodriguez" and the "Jason Giambi" box features a despondent Giambi with a syringe in his shoulder while a teammate (Kevin Brown?) chastises him or perhaps accuses him of stealing his stash. here's another confusing example of Johan Santana as ET:
and featuring Joe Mauer as "Elliot"
for more laffs, check out the most recent cartoon which features the Expos and in which a naked Tony Batista (genitals blurred) does some stretches in the clubhouse, much to the consternation of a teammate. perhaps there's a joke in there about Batista being a better player if he would take more pitches instead of swinging at so many bad balls. the next two frames feature: Batista with his arm around Brad Wilkerson possibly with eyebrows arched; and a geriatric Frank Robinson walking with a cane while a young charge (the number indicates it is Tomo Ohka) appears to razz a visibly shaken Sun-Woo Kim.Posted by jamie at February 7, 2005 12:50 PM
