    Suddenly unsure on immigration, Trump trying to clear it up

    It's been the driving issue of Donald Trump's campaign. Ten weeks before the election, however, buffeted by conflicting advice from aides and advisers, Trump has seemed to be in full indecision mode.

    Lim Chang-yong’s wild pickoff throw nearly hits Oh Jae-won. Most of what we know for sure is what we see, and that’s Kia Tigers pitcher Lim Chang-yong nearly taking Doosan Bears’ baserunner Oh Jae-won’s head off with an outrageously and dangerously bad pickoff throw. At first look, you’d swear Lim Chang-yong took headhunting to a new extreme by targeting a defenseless runner.
