The breakout star of the first WBC was slugging Korean first baseman Seung-Yeop Lee. This year it's likely the man who has replaced Lee at first for the Koreans, the hulking Tae Kyun Kim (who's name I have started to sing to the tune of a-ha's biggest hit). Kim leads off the bottom of the second taking a curve low and away from Hisashi Iwakuma.

Kim takes a mighty hack on 3-1, but merely lifts a foul pop down the right-field line that Ichiro Suzuki tracks down.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Shin-Soo Choo can do as the Indians' regular left fielder this year. Here, he strikes out on a slider in the dirt.

By the way, there are indeed a number of empty seats behind home plate. I wonder how much they were charging for those. The bulk of the crowd seems to be cheering for Korea.

Bum Ho Lee grounds out to second, giving Iwakuma another 1-2-3 inning.
