A couple nights ago, I listed the various Dodgers and Phillies who had previously played for the opposing team in this series. But I neglected to mention Chan Ho Park, who won 80 games for the Dodgers from 1994-2001, including a career-high 18 in 2000. He was the first Korean player signed by the Dodgers and he was wildly popular, attracting huge crowds of his countrymen when he pitched.
Park left the Dodgers and signed a big contract with the Rangers, but he's always been a little injury prone and he never was able to replicate the success he had here. He even returned to the Dodgers last year, when he went 4-4 in 54 innings as a reliever.
Now 36 years old, this year he landed with the Phillies. He began the season as a starter, then moved to the bullpen where he's been solid, though he's been injured for much of the past month. But he looked healthy Thursday night when he came on in the 7th inning with a one-run lead, a man on second and no outs. Park then proceeded to retire Manny Ramirez, Matt Kemp and Casey Blake.
If the Dodgers lose this series, they're going to be haunted by this Ghost of Dodger Teams Past. Let's hope Pedro Martinez doesn't follow suit today.
