FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Back managing a team, just being able to talk with his players is a challenge for Matt Williams.

About 10 miles from the spring training camps of the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins, the 54-year-old is at spring training with South Korea's Kia Tigers.

“You never know whether you’re going to get another chance to manager or not, so I look at it as a challenge or an opportunity,’’ he said, sitting in some small metal bleachers. “So far it’s been a lot of fun.”

0-2 so far.

불 매트 윌리엄스

interestingly when I reverse the translation it shows "Bull Matt Williams" which might be a better name for the thread. :)

Wife said that translates as standard decision with kimchi on the side.

Kia Tigers are now 1-3.  It will probably help Matt that the press, fans and players will have no idea what he is saying. Of course that was generally true here.

are the KBO standard decisions different?  Maybe he's having difficulty with translation?

I think they use characters instead of letters, so I think the character for standard decision is a combination of a head and futility.  something like this:

He’s no Davey.  Not nearly as articulate.  :hysterical:

Kia’s colors are red and blue.

Kia loses 14-2 to Samsung.  Samsung was swept in it's opening series but has now taken two in a row from Kia.  Kia falls to 1-4.  Maybe Matt needs a baby shark?
