Shin-Soo Choo, the Reds biggest off-season acquisition, reported to camp yesterday and was tailed by 25 members of the South Korean media.
They followed his every move — from the batting cages for early work to outfield practice to batting practice on the field. Most of the contingent will spend five days in Goodyear. During the season, however, only one reporter follows Choo.
Only one during the season? That’s good. I mean, unless Rob Butcher knows how to read and speak South Korean, he’d never be able to determine how easy the South Koreans were to control.
