How much will Lee Dae-ho exceed Kang Min-ho?
How much will the “heart of giants” increase the total?
It seems that the free agent (FA) market is in a lull in 2021. The market has turned into a fierce search-and-seek mode again as Doosan’s FA resources contract for the first time ended.
FA players with at least two clubs in demand recorded high ransom prices in the market. However, it is not easy for the players to compete in the second film. The current market is quiet enough to say that the clubs have a knife 토토사이트
Big fish do exist, of course. Considering the expectation of his next season performance and the value of his name so far, Lee Dae-ho (38) is the first name that comes to mind. Everyone is curious about how much he will be able to receive in his second FA contract, which broke “Jackpot” by signing with the Lotte Giants for 15 billion won four years ago.
Lee Dae-ho’s four-year total of 15 billion won ahead of the 2017 season is the No. 1 player in the KBO league history for a single FA contract. Several players, including Yang Eui-ji (NC Dinos), Choi Hyung-woo (KIA Tigers), and Kim Hyun-soo (LG Twins), have recorded high FA ransom of more than 10 billion won, but no one has exceeded Lee Dae-ho’s stronghold yet.
According to the accumulated total amount of FA contracts, Lee Dae-ho ranks third in history. The top player is Choi Jeong (33), who has signed with the SK Wyverns twice. The company has recorded 19.2 billion won in total, with 8.6 billion won in four years in the first contract and 10.6 billion won in the second contract in six years. Second place is Kang Min-ho (35, Samsung Lions). The company made a total of 15.5 billion won through four-year, 7.5 billion won, and eight billion won, four-year, FA contracts with Samsung.
Lee is expected to receive more than 500 million won in this winter’s contract. In this case, Kang easily surpasses Kang Min-ho’s second-place record in the cumulative total. The focus is on how close Lee Dae-ho will be to the optimal amount beyond Kang Min-ho’s total.
In reality, it seems difficult to break Choi Jeong’s record of No. 1 ranking. The cumulative difference between Lee Dae-ho and Choi Jeong is currently 4.2 billion won, which requires at least three years of contracts to be secured. Born in 1982, Lee Dae-ho will be 39 years old next year. Since he is not old enough, a long-term contract of more than three years is burdensome for the team. Considering the fact that Choi Hyung-woo, a year younger than Lee Dae-ho, signed with Kia for 4.7 billion won in the past three years, some outline of the market is also set.
