Pretty Good: Oh my God, the Mets gave Koo Dae-Sung a baseball bat

New, comments

We've got stories to tell. One story is about the hitting career of Koo Dae-Sung, the 35-year-old Mets rookie who had never swung a bat professionally in his life. It is a pretty good story. It is a Pretty Good story.

Welcome to Pretty Good. This is a series of short little documentaries, each of which are entirely self-produced by Jon Bois, and each of which have a weird, funny and/or interesting story to tell. We're not telling these stories because they're important, we're telling them because we feel like it.

The first episode of Pretty Good is about the profoundly strange batting career of former Mets pitcher Koo Dae-Sung, who almost nobody remembers or has ever heard of. Enjoy!

Written, illustrated, narrated, and produced by Jon Bois.
Music: "Bluebeard" by Cocteau Twins, "I Don't Care Anymore" by Phil Collins, "In And Out Of Youth" by Young Widows, and "Fantasy" by Mariah Carey.

MORE CRAP OF NOTE:

1. RANDY JOHNSON WAS ONE OF THE BEST PITCHERS WHO EVER LIVED

2. GENERALLY SPEAKING, STANDING AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE FROM THE PLATE IN THE BATTER'S BOX DOES NOT PRODUCE EFFECTIVE RESULTS
