So I get to the ballpark this morning and I ended up in an Abbott and Costello routine with Chien-Ming Wang.
Here’s how it went:
Wang: “The Dodgers have a player from Taiwan at shortstop.”
Me: “Oh yeah? Who’s that?”
Me: “Right, that’s what I asked, who?”
Me: “I’m asking you. Who is it?”
Wang (laughing): “His name is Hu.”
It turns out that the player is Chin-Lung Hu, who Wang knows from his Little League days in Taiwan. It was pretty funny for a few seconds. Bobby Abreu, who overheard the whole thing, was cracking up.
