Speaking of notable new blogs, Asia-watchers and baseball fans alike will want to check out the recently-launched East Windup Chronicle, “A Journal of Sports, Art, Politics, and Culture from the Pacific Rim” (with a heavy emphasis on baseball).
My pal Aaron and his friend Jackson, writing from South Korea and Taiwan, respectively, have been discussing issues such as Japan’s most underrated MLB player; Kim Ng, who may become the first female GM in baseball history; and a game-fixing scandal in the CPBL, Taiwan’s pro league.
Definitely worth a look.
