Choi Hyang-nam for $101


Who?

Admittedly, I don't know anything about this pitcher. The stat-mongers will sort him out in short order, however, and we'll have an update on Choi Hyang-nam.

Earlier indications are that he pitched for the Buffalo Bisons a few years ago and did well.

donga.com[English donga]: "Pitcher Choi Hyang-nam will return to the U.S. Major Leagues for the first time in three years.

The St. Louis Cardinals reached an agreement Saturday with the Korea Baseball Organization on the 38-year-old’s transfer. Under the posting system, a closed competitive bid, the Cardinals offered 101 dollars."
