The Prodigal Chan Ho Park Son Returns to LA
As I posted at FanHouse, former Dodger laughingstock, Chan Ho Park, has received a non-roster invitation to Dodgers spring training. What a joke. While in LA, Park was known for four things: wimping out of big games, allowing two grand slams to Fernando Tatis in the same inning, bicycle kicking Tim Belcher in interleague play, and seeking a $100 million free agent contract. Luckily for LA, Texas bit and paid $65 mil over five years for 22 wins from Park. Quite a bargain.
So now, for the first time since 2001, Chan Ho Park will appear in a Dodger uniform. What could possibly be a better way to pump up your fans who were excited about the Joe Torre hiring than by introducing Chan Ho Park as your first move of the winter? I don’t think it gets any better than that. Personally, I’m hoping he makes the roster so we can see some fireworks come April. Dodger fans: please keep your hands and arms inside your cubicle, and your regurgitation to yourself.
FYI, I’m giving myself bonus points for mixing in a picture that works in Chan Ho gone samurai, Tim Belcher, Mo Vaughn, and the old, hideous Angel jerseys all in one. Thanks to Scott Nelson of AFP for the magical moment.
