This, dear friends, is frighteningly funny.

I'm not sure if I entirely get the overall idea. Is it a criticism?

Is Konerko the best player because Ordonez and Thomas were injured? Or are they suggesting that he was the winner in a deathmatch for the title of "best player"? I don't think there's much evidence to support that.

Some of the frames seem complimentary: Buehrle is an innings eater (very clever) and the opposing players *seem* baffled by Shingo and Contreras (who's pitch appears to be heading towards third base if cartoon vector lines are to be believed).

Others are just nonsensical without the use of language. What's Carlos Lee doing? Didn't Konerko already KO Magglio and Frank Thomas anyhow? Freddy Garcia had some rough outings, but nothing worth getting *that* upset over.

I think I got the Jose Valentin one. He's a free swinger. Ozzie is troubled and confused by his apparent indifference towards the idea of plate discipline.

Can't understand a word of it, but I get the idea. Jose's and Freddy's are the funniest, IMO.

Your thoughts are exactly the same as mine. The Buehrle one makes sense as he eats up innings, and the Valentin whiff-machine one is fantastic. The Freddy and CLee ones are little bit more difficult to interpret. Is the CLee one implying he rode on Mags and Frank's backs? Not sure.

So many questions, so few answers...:D:

Why did Paulie kill Frank and Magglio? Anyone think we should trade him now?

What's with the bonding moment between Frank, Maggs, Carlos, and Paulie? And why is Carlos' nose red? Are they trying to suggest something about Carlos' personal life?

Why did Ozzie tape Freddy's mouth shut?

Why is that Indians player so afraid of the smell of that ball?

And most importantly, wilkes, what the hell are you doing looking at Korean sites? :?:

Holy ****!

First of all, is that a needle in Giambi's left arm??? Wow.

Ok, I get the Jeter one- he's chasing ass.

The A-Rod one seems to be implying that he doesn't watch porn with his teammates in the hotel after the game. Didn't he say a year or two back that he prefers to stay in the hotel with his wife and not go out on the town?

I'd say it is Lee fighting for the spotlight with Maggs, Frank and PK. Maybe saying he is underrated?

I think the Ben Sheets one was the best...I was laughing pretty hard--he's trying to keep the Cardinals' army of bats out so the Brewers can win but the Brewers hitters are just standing around yawning and picking their noses instead of scoring runs.

The cartoon is alluding to their good relationship, and they even get sick/hurt together. Dusty is telling them not to copy each other.

Actually, he says he isnt gay, he just did gay porn in college (as if it wouldn't make him gay). He said the whole team did it for money. I got to tell you guys, I am pretty poor right now, but never did becoming a gay porn star cross my mind.

I also think the Sabathia one is funny, he looks like a black Cartman.

Translation from a friend:


itís a commentary comic strip stating that the White Sox have a good line-up but theyíre not producing. Itís saying that Konerko is the star of the team now, Carlos Lee deserves more respect, Contreras is a wild pitcher, Valentin always swings for the fences, and Buehrle is depended on to pitch a lot of innings.

I love these because while MLB has always been popular in Asia- this shows how universal good humor is- that fans over there understand the shortcomings of guys like Jose and Milton Bradley. Koreans have always been known to have a wicked sense of humor (family guy, king of the hill are co-written there). The talk about globalization is true!

Mark Buehrle : "Just eating alot of something doesn't make me the ace" "How do I eat this?" - lots of it got lost in translation. i'm not sure if korean baseball terms were thrown in.

Carlos Lee : in the shadows...... "hey, let me get in front and get the picture taken.

Freddy Garcia : Has his strength gone down? Ozzie : "hmmm" Freddy : Don't give me grief!!"

Shingo Takatsu : something about the nasty ball. Shingo says yep-ee(not sure if that's a word or just a sound) The Cleveland guy says : *tkk* Do you avoid poo because your scared of it? it's because it's dirty.
