Will Sun Dong-yeol’s baseball team get a chance to redeem itself?

The Kia Tigers are in the process of hiring a new manager. The media and fan community are buzzing with candidates. The club is also narrowing down the list to a few favorites. It’s anyone’s guess who will take the helm. There’s a lot of jockeying for position between experienced candidates and fresh faces. Among the candidates is legendary former manager Sun Dong-yeol, who is considered the best pitcher in the history of professional baseball.

After six years as manager of the Samsung Lions and two championships and one runner-up finish, he took the reins as the seventh manager in 2012. However, 온라인카지노 the team failed in fall baseball for three years, finishing fifth, eighth, and eighth. He was re-signed for two more years, but was criticized by the fans, who even got his daughter’s cell phone number and sent her disparaging texts, and was so shocked that he resigned.

He has since taken over the national team,

Leading them to a gold medal at the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games and coaching the APBC team, but he hasn’t been too shy about his position. After winning the Asian Games gold medal, he was called to appear before the National Assembly over the selection of LG shortstop Oh Ji-hwan. He resigned from his position shortly afterward after Chung Un-chan criticized Sun for his comments. He was a candidate to manage the SK Wyverns after the 2021 season, but withdrew after disagreements arose during the coordination process.

He also had plans to train in the major leagues, but the COVID-19 outbreak forced him to abandon them. Instead, he has been studying baseball in depth and has published a book called “Seon Dong-yeol’s Baseball Studies,” which incorporates his experiences. There were predictions in the baseball world that he would one day take on a managerial role again, but his bid to join SK fell through, and this year he entered his 10th year in the field.

Suddenly, Kim Jong-kook was suspended after being accused of bribery. With spring training already underway, there are no candidates from other teams, and those with championship experience are the favorites. Sun Jeon is one of them. There is also interest in whether or not he will return to his roots after a decade away from KIA.

It’s clear that Sun was underperforming during the 2012-2014 seasons.

He took the blame and stepped down. At the same time, it is also clear that KIA was unlucky to have the weakest team at the time. The pitching staff was absolutely weak. Both the starters and the middle relievers had no business cards. In three seasons, the team had a 4.93 ERA, 9th in the league. They were ninth in starting ERA and last in bullpen ERA. The mound was not performing. Even the masters of pitching management couldn’t do anything with weak pitching.

In particular, the Korean one-two punch of Yoon Seok-min and Yang Hyun-jong were not able to do much. Yang Hyun-jong was not an ace in 2012 with 28 games and 41 innings (1 win) and 2013 with 19 games and 104⅔ innings (9 wins). It wasn’t until he won 16 games in 2014 that he became an ace. Yoon Seok-min, who won four titles and MVP honors in 2011, won just nine games in 28 games and 153 innings in 2012, and missed the 2013 season full-time due to the WBC aftereffects. He moved to the United States after the season.

The decisive risk was the poor performance of the one-two punch of outfielders.

In three years, only Anthony Leroux (11 wins, 171 innings pitched) had won more than 10 games and 170 innings in a season. Furthermore, the lack of depth in the middle of the order and the absence of a closer frequently led to upset losses. The team also used outfielder Jairo Ascencio as a relief pitcher. The team’s three-player ban meant that whenever an outfielder started, an outfielder had to bat off the bench. The lack of major league-level foreign pitchers was a big factor.

This year, the KIA mound is considered to be top-notch. The starting staff was solidified with the one-two punch of active major leaguers such as Will Crowe and James Nail, as well as ace pitcher Yang Hyun-jong, domestic ace Lee Yi-ri, and a much sharper Yoon Young-chul. The bullpen is also solid with Choi Ji-min, Lee Jun-young, Im Ki-young, and Jeon Sang-hyun, 바카라사이트 including closer Jung Hae-young. The backup pitching staff has also thickened. It’s a far cry from the pitching staff of the 2012-2014 seasons. I wonder if Sun Dong-yeol Baseball will get a chance to redeem itself.
