SSG is having a tough end to the season. It was said to be a ‘two-tier’ with LG, but it came down to sixth place. It is not a competition for the championship, but a battle for the fifth place. Instead, the season is not over yet. But something is unsettling. That’s the case out there.
SSG has played 123 games until the 17th, recording 62 wins, 2 draws and 59 losses, and a 0.512 winning rate. It dropped to sixth place. He has lost five games in a row recently. In the last 10 games, he had only one win, one draw and eight losses.
It is simply a ‘difficult situation’. First of all, it is painful that the mound collapsed. I keep getting offbeat. If the starter throws well, the bullpen shakes. Conversely, as the starting pitcher falters, there are tough games even in the bullpen. 스포츠토토
The bat is not very good either. He averaged 2.8 points per game during his five-game losing streak. He has a team batting average of 0.219 and a team ERA of 6.70 while losing five times. I couldn’t win.
The most disappointing aspect of the season is the mound. The starting lineup is the lowest with an ERA of 4.65. Kirk McCarty is making 3.45, and Roenis Elias is making 3.48. Foreigners’ one-two punches are okay.
The native side is much to be desired. Kim Kwang-hyun is playing his part with a 3.90 ERA, but Moon Seung-won (7.99), Park Jong-hoon (5.61) and Oh Won-seok (5.59) are not meeting expectations.
It is no exaggeration to say that the bullpen only shows Noh Kyung-eun, Ko Hyo-joon and Seo Jin-yong throughout the season. Noh Kyung-eun and Ko Hyo-joon played 64 games each, and Seo Jin-yong played 58 games. He seems to have lost strength at the end of the season. In September, Seo Jin-yong is 8.44 and Ko Hyo-joon is 7.71.
Lee Kun-wook, Choi Min-joon, Baek Seung-gun, Lim Joon-seop, Song Young-jin, and Lee Yoon are not without other resources. have a jagged feeling. At least, Choi Min-joon played a role like a licorice until the middle of the season, but has recently slowed down. It is welcome news that Lee Kun-wook did a last-minute “step-up.”
So far, it’s happened. In any case, the current players cheered up, so they were able to steadily rank at the top. Director Kim Won-hyung led them.
But as I keep losing, I get “horse” everywhere. There are ‘typical’ aspects when they can’t. First of all, some argue that someone should raise it at Futures because the current players can’t.
It’s not going to work out like this. It may be the heart of a fan who wants the team to win, or it may also be the thought of the front office or the parent company wishing for victory. However, it is a shame to win one game at the end of the season, but will it be easy for someone to raise it and use it at Futures.
There are constant stories about the director. There seem to be quite a few people who think, “If you don’t change, you’ll be in trouble.” I can actually hear this and that.
In this situation, owner Jung Yong-jin made a strange move. On his SNS, an SSG fan wrote a comment saying, “We need to replace head coach Kim Won-hyung quickly to have a future.” In this comment, owner Jung Yong-jin replied, “You’re not the only one who knows, just wait.”
There was nothing concrete, but the nuances can be grasped. As the owner of the team, I don’t think I like the current situation very much. It may be an indication of a replacement. However, it is also true that it was necessary to do this publicly.
Chung Yong-jin, the owner of the team, is nicknamed “Yongjin-hyung.” That’s how much affection he had for the team and his support was hot. In terms of investment, it doesn’t seem wrong even if it’s the best ever. He also has absolute support from his fans.
Instead, the owner’s “on-site intervention” is another different story. Everyone knows what the owner’s excessive on-site interference has brought about. Some teams have not won in decades. Baseball love and operation should always be one thing. If you are confused, you will only get negative effects.
A professional baseball manager is called a “fly’s life.” Even if the contract period remains, many people take off their clothes. Director Kim Won-hyung may not be free either.
However, he is the head coach who led the integrated title of “Wire to Wire” just a year ago. He even renewed his contract for three years. It’s the first year of renewal. There is still the possibility of autumn baseball. In the fall, he can win two consecutive Korean Series titles.
It’s not over yet. But I think it’s already over. It’s chaotic, unstable. There is nothing to help the squad playing on the field.
