    It seems that Bong Jung-keun, the 26 year-old Cincinnati Reds player, will be returning to Korea.

    It has been confirmed that Cincinnati team, who owns the rights to him, has asked to the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) through the Major League commission how to transfer him.

    Bong, who has been on the waiver list of the team before the seasonís start, is currently playing with the AA Chattanooga Lookouts. His record for the season is one win, one loss with an ERA of 5.09.

    After quitting Shinil High School in 1997 to enter the majors, Bong does not have any restrictions in coming back to Korea according to KBO rules, because he left before January 1, 1999.

    If Bong is to play in Korea, first he should submit an application form to the KBO before June 5, the deadline of pro baseballís first round draft. Afterwards, KBO will report this to Doosan and LG, who have priority negotiations rights to the Seoul native Bong, and the teams can announce whether or not they reached a contract within two weeks.

    Bong started his life in the big leagues with the Atlanta Braves in 2002 and moved to Cincinnati in 2004. His major league career record, which has shuttled from the majors to the minors, is seven wins, four losses, and one save with an ERA of 5.17.

    Maybe the Braves will waive Reitsma to help even it out.

    At least it is wonderful proof that DanO was clueless from start to finish.

    His first deal was giving away Reitsma and his last deal was acquiring the offensive black hole better known as Womack.

    The title of this thread made me laugh. They should really hide that thing...

    Good move, though.

    Bubba Nelson was the other part of that deal right? Where did he wind up again?

    I still love DanO's attempt at a parting shot in which he basically said the plan was in place, but management and the fans didn't give it time to develop.

    Just ask Tommy Chong - he got a year in jail for shipping a bong across state lines.
