LG Twins – Yoo Kang-nam (C)
Rockies Player Comparison: Matt Holliday, 2005
I know, I know. It’s the LG Twins and the obvious Rockies comparison is Roberto Ramos, former Albuquerque Isotope and current LG Twin. But I make the rules and that would be way too obvious … but yes, Ramos would make a great Rockie, wouldn’t he?
Regardless, no one has as awesome of a nickname as Kang-nam, which is “Kang-nam Style.” Stop doing the dance, I know you’re doing it. Also, LOOK AT THAT BAT FLIP.
And Kang-nam is a catcher. With a comparison like Matt Holliday, it’s fair to wonder: If Kang-nam was a Padre in 2007, would he have let Matt Holliday touch home? I mean Matt Holliday definitely touched home in 2007. But if Kang-nam was the catcher? Maybe a different story.
