- by admin
The 2023 KBO League is about to open. There is talk of upward leveling. prospects to be intense. However, there is a club that is evaluated as a ‘strong team’ among them. LG and KT received ‘no votes’.
The Korea Baseball Organization 메이저놀이터(KBO) held the 2023 KBO League Opening Media Day at the Grand Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Hannam-dong, Seoul on the 30th. Managers and representative players from 10 clubs gathered in one place.
Each manager announced the selection for the opening match and revealed their determination to face the new season. Then, the question went to “choose two teams that are likely to face each other in the postseason.” It means to ask for a kind of ‘winner candidate’. LG and KT were mentioned almost without exception.
Both LG and KT have stable power in Touta. The starting lineup is strong, and the bullpen is solid. Batting is also good. The battle of resourcefulness between the command towers is also a part that raises expectations. These are the teams that are not left out when talking about winning candidates. KT has won the championship in 2021, and LG is also a team that goes ‘all-in’ to win.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “I think LG and KT have the most stable pitching power.” SSG coach Kim Won-hyeong also said, “Personally, I think LG and KT will do it. The pitching balance is right and they have a lot of postseason experience. I think they will play with us at the end.”
Director Hong Won-ki of Kiwoom said, “I felt that the 9 clubs were leveled through the demonstration game,” but “I felt that LG and KT were the strongest. We have a stable starting lineup, and the experience of the players and the experience of the coaches have accumulated. Samsung coach Park Jin-man also said,
“I will point to KT. And LG. I think we will play fall baseball together. LG has good pitching power. I’ve been weak against KT for years, but I think I’ll meet KT in the fall.”
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop emphasized, “Because the pitcher is important in baseball, I think the two teams, KT and LG, will definitely make it to the postseason.” Regarding the part where Doosan was not mentioned, he laughed, saying, “Thank you for the calm evaluation.”
In the case of Hanwha coach Carlos Subero, “I always think of LG as a strong team. The combination of pitching is good, and foreign pitchers are good. I would like to pick LG. And Kiwoom is a team with domestic players. It is growing every year. This year will also be good,” he said, and mentioned raising with LG.
Of course, there were other opinions. Lotte coach Larry Sutton said, “I will choose SSG and Kiwoom.” “SSG is the winning team last year. They have a strong lineup. The pitcher is also strong. Kiwoom had a magical season last year. There are players with good athletic nerves, and they showed good shape in the postseason,” he said highly
. It has strong power. The upper middle class has become equalized in power. I want to meet the two teams,” he pointed out.
What did LG and KT, who received the most votes, think? If I had to choose two teams, I would choose KT and SSG. They have 5 clear starting cards, and the lineup is good. I think I will do it with us,” he explained.
Director Lee Kang-cheol suddenly changed direction. Isn’t it always about us, LG, and SSG? Samsung and Hanwha showed good performances in the demonstration game. There are many potential players. He replied, “I don’t know about baseball.
