KBO Dongers Club – Tue May 19th

I am kind of digging this concept of play six straight days and then have a day off in the KBO.  If they have a rain out over the weekend then they will make it up on Monday’s.  I know MLB has floated this idea in the past and at first I hated it — but in terms of not worrying a bout waking up at 5:30 or staying up till 1am, it’s nice.  This concludes my random thought for the day, thanks for coming.

Oh, the games!  New series beginning this week

  • Eagles at Wiz
  • Twins at Lions
  • Giants at Tigers
  • Dinos at Bears — What have been two of the best teams in the league, should be a good series
  • Wyverns at Heroes — Wyverns are 1-10.  They’re uh.  Due?



Won Tae Choi (Kiwoom Heroes, RHP – $9500)

Choi enters this game 0-1 on the year through his first two starts but hasn’t pitched poorly by any stretch.  He’s allowed only 3 extra base hits through 12 1/3 IP while striking out 10 to only 2 walks.  Now in his sixth year in the league he has continued to improve every season as a starter and has a 16.7% strikeout rate average over the past three seasons.  After going 5 IP in his first start, he went 7 1/3 versus the Samsung Lions at home in his last start striking out 6 on just 89 pitches.  Samsung isn’t exactly an elite offense but they have to be considered elite compared to the Wyverns who he faces today as they come in dead last in runs scored at 34 and this stadium has has a negative impact on Home Runs historically.  Everything aligns well for Choi here, which is why he is a heavy favorite, should be highly owned and even at $9500 is at the top of my model today.

William Cuevas (KT Wiz, RHP – $7500)

I was bummed that the early line on this game was so heavy on the Wiz, because that means folks not looking into anything will auto play Cuevas as a heavy heavy home favorite.  But it’s a great spot for him.  Cuevas is his second season now in the KBO will be below a K per IP normally but he’s facing one of the higher strikeout rate teams on the slate and they have NO power with just a projected ISO of 0.088.  They let him throw 105 pitches last start, so if he gets through 6 + innings today he can deliver a pretty good stat line for us in a winnable spot.


FanDuel Pitching

  • In addition to the players mentioned above, David Buchanan (Samsung) is a nice value on FanDuel



NC Dinos vs Doosan Bears

The NC Dinos are off to a hot 10-1 start this season, but they’ve also faced the Wyverns, Lions and Wiz and two of those are horrific teams so far.   Chicken and egg scenario?  Who knows, but either way this is a tougher spot for them to beat out the mighty defending champion Bears.  Either way, good game for offense in my mind.

  •  NC faces the weaker pitcher, so they draw a slight “data” advantage today:
    • Min Woo Park (2B)
    • Aaron Altherr (OF)
    • Sung Bum Na (OF)
    • Eui Ji Yang (C) … Catcher Monday’s in MLB = Catcher Tuesday’s in KBO.
  • Doosan on the other hand faces the “mighty” Mike Wright — who will be a nice mid range popular pick today but not for me.  Gimme the Bears
    • Kun Woo Park (OF)
    • Jose Miguel Fernandez (1B/2B)
    • Jae Il Oh (1B)
    • Jae Hwan Kim (1B/OF)
    • Joo Hwan Choi  (1B/2B) — Great Value


Lotte Giants vs Kia Tigers

This game carries a hefty 10.5 total, so you know it’s chalky and the good reason why should be the power bats in this game.  Min Woo Lee gives up lots of HR and the Giants should benefit today, but my lineups today will start with the MVP of the KBO thus far Preston Tucker and Ji Wan Na (who is right behind Tucker with 3 doubles and 2 HR to star tthe season and by right behind, I mean half way behind him).  I would definitely get exposure on this game, just not a full stack either side.

  •  Giants:
    • Ah Seop Son (OF)
    • Jun Woo Jeon (OF)
    • Dixon Machado (SS)
  • Tigers:
    • Preston Tucker (OF)
    • Ji Wan Na (OF)
    • Hyung Woo Choi (1B) .. He is $6300, it’s way too much for me with so many 1B from the Bears that I like but if you wanna stack the Tigers, then fine, add him in too.




  1. Eui Ji Yang (NCD) … Usually not a fan of paying up for catchers but this is definitely a day to do it with Yang.
  2. Yong Hwan Baek (KIA)


  1. Dae Ho Lee (LOT)
  2. Jae Il Oh (DOO)
  3. Baek Ho Kang (KTW)


  1. Min Woo Park (NCD)
  2. Jose Fernandez (DOO)
  3. Chi Hong An (LOT)


  1. Won Seok Lee (SAM) … Playing well of late and hitting cleanup for a team that will have almost no ownership despite being at home.
  2. Suk Min Park (NCD)


  1. Dixon Machado (LOT)
  2. Woo Jun Sim (KTW) … If he leads off at $2500 that’s a value lock
  3. Ha Seong Kim (KIW)


  1. Preston Tuckerrrrrrrrrrrrr (KIA)
  2. Sung Bum Na (NCD)
  3. Byung Hun Min (LOT)
  4. Ah Seop Son (LOT)
  5. Myung Gi Lee (NCD)



Chairman:    Eui Ji Jang – Catcher – NC Dinos
