Josh Lindblom hoping this is his time


A few weeks ago we looked at the ex-Dodger prospects who were finding jobs around the major leagues. One of the names we looked at was Josh Lindblom who had signed with the Pirates in early December. At the time he was just a footnote to the story but Adam Berry of gave us more details of the Josh Lindblom saga.

He learned some conversational Korean, came to appreciate the food, took part in team events and soaked in the unique baseball culture for two years. He pitched pretty well, too, starting 61 games with a 4.33 ERA in the hitter-friendly KBO. He became a fan favorite in a foreign country.

“We loved everything about it,” he said. “I can’t say enough about our experience over there. No words can describe the way they accepted us. It was unbelievable. … It was probably one of the best, if not the best experience of my career.”

As one of the good guys, I hope Josh not only finds his way onto the Pirate roster, I hope he thrives and becomes a Pirate fan favorite. May Monroe eventually be able to watch her father work on the mound, but more importantly, I hope she just gets to hug her father.

    So tough with an infant.
    Even when it’s just a cold, they can’t tell you what’s bothering them.
    So you wind up being more concerned, until the trouble passes.
