    Korean league

    1. I had no idea there was a pro league in Korea. Anybody know about how it compares to A/AA/AAA?

    2. Can we sell some more players to the Korean league? I can think of quite a few I'd love the Reds to unload

    There's leagues in Japan, Korea, Taiwan

    Japan - probably comparable to AAAA - it's the best of the Pacific Rim leagues. usually you can find some former major leaguers and big names there.

    Korea - AAA / AAAA - same goes here, a lot of AAA guys have their contracts bought and go here for some good money.

    Taiwan - maybe AA

    Do they need high profile, expensive managers?

    “Lehr had a clause in his contract that said if a Korean club approached him, we had to let him go and that’s exactly what happened,” said general manager Walt Jocketty. “We had an opportunity to match their offer but it wasn’t something we wanted to do.

    Better explanation. Maybe people shouldn't jump to "stupid move" conclusions without knowing the facts. I can see not wanting to give a 5A player a raise, even though the Bats lose a very solid pitcher.
