The Enemy Speaks: Nationals Series

Welcome to this season's first edition of The Enemy Speaks (formerly known as From the Opponents' Feed). Here are the interesting tidbits gleaned from NOT listening to the Brennemen, but rather to the opposing team's announcers, who often have different, interesting, or mock-able insights, observations, and stories that the Brennemen don't work hard enough to harvest. Because they are the poop.

Only 2 nuggets to share in this episode, and they both involve The Choo Choo train.

Firstly first, CHOO PREFERS OLD SCHOOL

That's not one, but TWO ear flaps on that batting helmet. Yet Choo only bats lefty. Is it to be extra careful? Maybe. But perhaps he never saw the logic in one flap. They now require double-flap helmets in the minor leagues, so perhaps that's its origin for The Korean Klobberer.

Choo know who would approve? THIS GUY:

Also, CHOO WAS A PITCHER.

Choo was selected as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Best Pitcher of the 2000 World Junior Baseball Championship as South Korea won the event. Choo signed a $1.35 million contract with the Mariners after the championship and converted to the outfield.

The dude's got a cannon. Here is what the traditionally-loaded Korean cannon Chun Ja Chong Tong (heaven's cannon) looked like:
