Lehr actually had an agreement he could go to Korea if there was an offer. If I was in his position I'd like to try that, too. Use baseball to have an adventure since it isn't likely by his age that you're going to see the big leagues. I think some of these guys who are journeyman minor leaguers and then go overseas to play in Asia and come home and play some more before hanging it up would be more interesting to sit and shoot the breeze with than a guy who went straight to the big leagues as a youngster.
