“LEE, it’s not the answer to solve everything, but…” American media, rich science fiction, has more to do for next year

It is clear that the San Francisco Giants have strengthened their power by recruiting Lee Jung-hoo, but there is an evaluation that there is a long way to go.

San Francisco completed a six-year, $113 million contract with Lee Jung-hoo and held a press conference at Oracle Park, its home stadium, on the 16th (Korea Standard Time).헤라카지노

At the meeting, San Francisco President Blue Zaidi said, “Lee Jung-hoo is the perfect player for our team. His goal was to strengthen his offensive line this off-season, but he recently found a batter who fits the Major League trend and has excellent contact capabilities. “There is no player who has what we want more than Lee Jung-hoo,” he said. “Lee Jung-hoo is a person who shines more brightly in and out of baseball and is capable of playing baseball well. I expect that he will bring joy and energy to our team. He will play center field in the opening game next year.”

Lee bragged that he was the right person to solve everything. That’s enough to say at the signing ceremony. San Francisco is still lacking, however. We need to strengthen our offense and mound. We have enough money. Next year, we need to beat the LA Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks to regain the crown in the West Division.

MLB.com highlighted Lee Jung-hoo’s addition by mentioning San Francisco for the ninth time in an article titled “The 10 most likely teams to rebound next year among the teams that failed in the postseason this year.”

Reporter Anthony Castrobins, who wrote the article, first introduced it as ‘Lee Jung-hoo who finally received a large amount from the Giants’ and said, ‘Can he say that he is already a famous product like Aaron Judge, Carlos Correa, and Shohei Ohtani? Of course not.’

Judge, Correa, and Ohtani are some of the big FAs that San Francisco missed in the final phase. Last winter, San Francisco Giants agreed with Aaron Judge, the biggest FA player, for nine years and 360 million U.S. dollars, but lost the deal because the New York Yankees offered the same conditions, and immediately after that, it decided to sign Correa for 13 years and 350 million dollars, but was scrapped after being rejected by physical examination. In the latest FA market, Judge offered Ohtani a whopping amount equivalent to that of the Dodgers, but he was also shunned.

Lee Jung-hoo is not a proven player who has built a major league career comparable to these three.

However, reporter Castrobins said, “KBO star Lee Jung-hoo will contribute to the Giants’ batting lineup, which needs much more stability, as a batter with a high contact rate and a low strikeout rate,” adding, “It is not the right answer to solve all the problems that plague the Giants who replaced manager Gabe Kapler and sat manager Bob Melvin, but it is the starting point.”

As Castrobins pointed out, San Francisco was not able to advance to the postseason this year due to its weak offense. It was ranked 28th with a team batting average of 0.235 and 24th with a team on-base percentage of 0.312, 26th with a team OPS (0.695) and 24th with a team score (674). It clearly revealed the reason why it needs to recruit fast and sophisticated left-handed batter Lee Jung-hoo, who is ranked 19th with a team leadoff batting average of 0.263, 28th with a team left-handed hitter batting average of 0.225 and 24th with a team left-handed hitter on-base percentage of 0.317.

“The Giants, who consistently maintained a winning rate of 50 percent in 2023, still have funds to strengthen their lineup and rotation. That’s why I included it in this corner even though I had to overcome the Dodgers and the Diamondbacks,” Castrovins said.

The San Francisco Giants is actively engaged in negotiations with Yoshinobu Yamamoto, the biggest pitcher in the FA market, while keeping an eye on Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery. Cody Bellinger and Matt Chapman are also mentioned in the fielders market.
