Asian pitchers tend to look good while wearing Dodgers uniforms for their first year. Just sayin'

Orel said...

So true, Karina! One-year contract for Wang?

Dusty Baker said...

I'd take Wang for a year.

...that didn't come out right.

Josh S. said...

If it didn't come out right, I'd hate to see how it went in.

Yes, please! I want a year of Wang jokes!

Dusty Baker said...

We would never stop talking about Wang.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now add Matt Capps and Josh Blackbuy - er, I mean Whitesell

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wait, were any Dodgers tender-eligible?

No chicken tenders here.

"This punch has a certain Wang to it."
-from the movie Hollywood Knights, circa 1979

That said, I'd sign Wang to a minor league deal, laden with incentives. That arm is troublesome.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and would Garrett Atkins be so terrible? Former Bruin comes home.
