Checking back in with the star of the WBC

The Digital Chosunilbo checks back in on Korean WBC star Seung-Yeop Lee, who plays in Japan for the Yomiuri Giants.

Lee leads the Central League in a bunch of offensive categories, including home runs.

The Giants got off to a quick start, but are in the middle of a stretch where the team has lost 28 of 33 games and they have fallen all the way back to fifth place, 13 1/2 games behind first place Chunichi.

A sidebar on the link on top passes on the "news" that the Yankees are interested in Lee, but that seems more like an idea out of the Yankees' marketing department, not the scouting department.

With the elbow guard, and the Giants uniform, all that Lee needs to do is get a deep tan to be confused for Barry Bonds. Eh...perish the thought.

I think Barry Bonds weighs more than 95 kg.

I weigh more than 95 kgs.

Then again I'm a lot taller than Seung-Yeop Lee.

How much is that in pounds? ;-)

Actually, upon doing the checking, I don't weigh significantly more than 95 kgs. I believe I tip the Toledos at around 100 kgs.

I would assume Mr. Bonds is a lot more than 100.
