Lim Chang-Yong to the Red Sox?
World Series champions, the Boston Red Sox, are showing an interest in South Korean free agent pitcher Lim Chang-yong, the player's agent said. Is this guy any good and can you e-mail me his stats please?

Your best bet would be to ask those who posted the stats on the KBO Hyperboards. I didn't see Lim on the final leaders page, so I would guess that he didn't pitch enough innings to qualify for a title in 2004. Anyway, they'll be much more knowledgable over there.

Hope you find what you're looking for.

According to this article [Dong-A - in English], Yong's agent said he has recieved calls about Yong from the Red Sox, Angels, Yankees, Twins, and Braves. Though the article also states that Korean baseball experts are saying that Yong is not wanted by any major league team.

Lin is crazy good. He has a sidewind delivery and has a fastball that averages in the mid-90's with a decent curve ball. And he was this year's (2004) KBO save champion.

Word is that they offered him a 5 year $9 million contract.
