The lovable upstart KT Wiz were an abject disaster out of the gate. A horrendous bullpen snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory over and over again over the first eight games, leaving the plucky Wiz at 1-7 and miles away from where they wished to be. But all that began to change with a great awakening of Wiz bats and a five-game winning streak to give some hope to weary fans.
Sadly, though, the relief pitching is back on its bull, blowing a lead against the LG Twins today in Seoul. Starter Odrisamer Despaigne once again saw a stellar outing (one-run ball over seven innings) turn to dust when manager Kim Jin-wook turned to other arms. That decision aged worse than bad guys in the Indiana Jones franchise.
