Kim Ha-sung who won the WS championship was not as good as Ryu Hyun-jin’s best, was the SD ambition of a genius hitter first
The San Diego Padres revealed their ambition to win the World Series as they cleared 13 players for three days. Once again, he declared to overthrow the Los Angeles Dodgers.
San Diego sent four players to the Milwaukee Brewers on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time) and received a special closer Josh Hader. On the 3rd, he was the winner of the recruitment of Juan Soto. He even brought in first baseman Josh Bell from the Washington Nationals.
However, Eric Hosmer, who had wanted to clean up for a few years, refused to trade to Washington and hurriedly matched the card with the Boston Red Sox. In the end, he sent three players, including Hosmer, and received a promising Boston pitcher. In Washington, Luke Voight was given instead of Hosmer. In summary, 4-13 Big Deal.
In particular, Soto, Hayder, and Bell are the top players in the league. On the other hand, most of the 13 players who were sent out are promising players. In other words, Soto intends to win the World Series for three years before entering the 2024-2025 FA market. In particular, shortstop No. 1 prospect CJ Abrams headed to Washington, creating conditions for Kim Ha-sung to play as a super backup throughout the contract period. If Fernando Tatis Jr. goes to the outfield in the future, Kim Ha-sung may become the main shortstop.
The U.S. media evaluated that San Diego made a big deal for the presidential election. CBS Sports has rated clubs that have been in the trade market. San Diego is definitely A. Soto’s defense is often a problem, but given his productivity at bat, there is nothing wrong, and Bell evaluated it as an upgraded version of Hosmer.
Also, CBS Sports said, “Of course, it’s a strong lineup, and it’s a lineup that doesn’t give the opponent an edge in any batting order. Tatis’ return means that he will see Kim Ha-sung play as a designated hitter for a certain period of time as he returns to the utility role,” he said. If Tatis plays as a designated hitter right after his return, it means that Kim Ha-sung will have more chances to play as a starting shortstop
Now, San Diego will challenge the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers in the two major National League mountains this season. CBS Sports said, “The Dodgers and Mets certainly have a lot of impact and talent. The only way to beat it is to develop your impact, your talent. San Diego has their share now,” he said.
NBC Sports said San Diego’s odds of winning the World Series this season were +1000. It improved from +1500. After the Dodgers and New York Yankees at +350, Houston Astros at +400, Mets at +700, and Atlanta Braves at +900. Still, San Diego’s chances of winning this year’s World Series are not easy.
However, at least San Diego became a team that could challenge to win until the 2024 season when Soto stayed. This means that Kim Ha-sung, who signed a 4+1 year contract with San Diego ahead of the 2021 season, can also challenge the World Series championship ring while Soto stays. Kim Ha-sung’s guarantee contract is also until 2024 파워볼사이트
Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays), who has been in the Major League for 10 years, has suffered for a long time Choi Ji-man (Tampa Bay Race), who managed to get the first baseman, also won the World Series runner-up, but failed to wear a winning ring. Among all Korean major leaguers, only “Burger Kim” Kim Byung-hyun (2001 and 2004) has a World Series championship ring. I’ve even tasted two championship twice
