Josh Rawitch tells me he is expecting a Korean media contingent of about 100 who are following the South Korean team through the WBC. Joe Torre said shortly before game time today that Manny won’t play before Thursday, but he still wasn’t 100-percent committal on that. So if you’re buying a ticket to that game for that reason, well … he’s probably going to play. … Jason Schmidt had a quick go of it in the first inning, and he isn’t running in the outfield yet. So it looks like he’ll get a second inning. Joe said he’ll throw about 40 pitches.
