‘Jeonbuk or Pohang?’ Ulsan K-League Championship Awards Ceremony Invitation Team, Everyone Feels a Big Hit

Posted on 31 October 2023 by maxytee.com

 We deliver issues in the soccer world that can be read lightly when starting the day in bed in the morning or finishing the day in bed at night. I will gently place news that is not too heavy, but not too light, on the bed.

[My Daily = Reporter Lee Hyun-ho] Ulsan Hyundai holds a K-League victory ceremony in front of its rivals. No matter who it is, the opposing team is bound to feel sick to their stomachs.

Ulsan, led by coach Hong Myung-bo, defeated Daegu FC 2-0 in the 35th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at Munsu Soccer Stadium in Ulsan on the 20th and reached 70 points. The gap with second place Pohang Steelers (60 points) widened to 10 points. There are only 3 games left. Even if Ulsan loses and Pohang wins, the ranking does not change.

Ulsan, which confirmed its early victory, has not yet held an awards ceremony to lift the championship cup against a backdrop of colorful pollen. They only took commemorative photos with fans while holding a placard that said, ‘Achieved 300,000 spectators in the first season since its founding.’ The plan is to hold a grand awards ceremony during the remaining home games.

The opponents for the remaining home games are interesting. Ulsan will play round 36 against ‘east coast rival’ Pohang at home on the 12th of next month. On December 3rd, Hyundai will play its final match of the 38th round at home against rival Jeonbuk Hyundai. Ulsan is facing one of its long-time rivals, Pohang and Jeonbuk. “Goodbye~!” Prepare to sing along.

Currently, there is a high possibility that the championship award ceremony will be held in the final match against Jeonbuk. An official from the Korea Professional Football League said, “We are discussing the championship award ceremony schedule with the Ulsan club. “Ulsan wants to hold a victory ceremony in the final game (against Jeonbuk),” he explained.

This is not because the opponent in the final match is rival Jeonbuk. If a team that wins early holds the championship award ceremony early, attention to the remaining home games decreases, and audience revenue and marketing are also adversely affected. Ulsan (17,670), currently ranked second in average attendance in the K League, plans to attract as many spectators as possible for the remaining two games.

Looking at a recent example, all winning teams from the 2019-2022 season held a championship award ceremony in the 38th round, the final game. There was no overwhelming early winning team in these four seasons. Ulsan and Jeonbuk fought back and forth until the end of the season. Because of this, there was no choice but to hold a victory ceremony in the last home game.

In the 2018 season, Jeonbuk confirmed the championship before entering the final round and held an awards ceremony at the home game in the 33rd round. The number of spectators attending the 33rd round Incheon United match was 18,482. However, the number of spectators attending the 34th round home game against Suwon Samsung was only 7,866. The crowd for the home game following the awards ceremony was cut in half.

Ulsan ranks second in average attendance, receiving a cumulative attendance of 300,406 in 17 home games this season. Although it is mathematically difficult to overturn FC Seoul (21,890), which ranks first in average attendance, it is possible to set new records for the highest cumulative attendance and average attendance ever. This is why the festival must continue until the Pohang and Jeonbuk matches.토스카지노

Meanwhile, one of Jeonbuk and Pohang, which will appear as a supporting actor at the 2023 season Ulsan championship award ceremony, is confirmed to be unattached this year. Both Jeonbuk and Pohang advanced to the semifinals of the FA Cup, but only one team took home the trophy. There is a possibility that both will miss out on the championship.

The FA Cup semifinals are scheduled for Jeonbuk-Incheon and Jeju-Pohang on the 1st. The winner of these two games will play in the single finals on the 4th. Jeonbuk and Pohang, as well as Incheon and Jeju Island, are highly motivated to win the FA Cup. Therefore, the opposing team at the Ulsan championship ceremony can only satisfy their appetite with ‘empty hands’.


Ryu Hyun-jin 37th → Kim Ha-seong 16th → Lee Jeong-hoo 14th, has KBO status improved? Ranked higher than ML All-Star outfielder

Posted on 31 October 2023 by maxytee.com

Lee Jeong-hoo (25, Kiwoom), who has not played a single game in the United States, ranked 14th in the major league free agent rankings. To make a leap forward, the status of the KBO league has risen that much. 

Major League Baseball’s official website ‘MLB.com’ selected the 2023-2024 off-season free agent rankings on the 29th (Korean time). Reporter Mark Feinsand ranked the top 25 free agents for the upcoming winter based on conversations with club executives, scouts, and agents. 

Korean outfielder Lee Jeong-hoo, who is expected to enter the major leagues through the post-season posting system, was ranked 14th. Reporter Finesand said, ‘Lee Jung-hoo, the 2022 KBO MVP who finished the season early due to ankle surgery, is evaluated as a center fielder with above-average defensive ability with a slash line (batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage) of .340/.407/.491 over 7 seasons in Korea. ‘It works,’ he explained. 

The San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, and New York Yankees were selected as potential destinations for Lee Jeong-hoo. 

Cuban outfielder Louerdes Gurriel Jr. (Arizona Diamondbacks), who was selected as an All-Star for the first time in his 6th year in the Major League this year and hit 24 home runs, is ranked 15th, one step lower than Jeong-hoo Lee. Teoscar Hernández (Seattle), another All-Star outfielder who won the Silver Slugger Award twice with a total of 159 home runs in eight seasons, is also ranked lower than Lee Jeong-hoo. 

Lee Jung-hoo’s value is evaluated higher than that of proven slugger outfielders in the major leagues. Compared to the two players who are in their early 30s, Lee Jeong-hoo’s advantage is that he is younger, in his mid-20s. Unlike the two players who are focused on hitting, his overall value is high because he has a style that can contribute to defense and base running. 

Nevertheless, considering the past, it is surprising that Lee Jeong-hoo is ranked higher. The Major League’s perspective on the KBO League has changed that much. Ryu Hyun-jin, who announced his intention to advance to the big leagues after the 2012 season, ranked 37th in ESPN’s top 50 free agent rankings in early November of that year. At the time, there were no players who went directly from the KBO League to the big league, and the mere fact that Ryu Hyun-jin rose to the rankings was of great significance. 

Two years later, Kang Jung-ho was not ranked among the top 25 free agents selected by MLB.com in early November 2014. Although Ryu Hyun-jin was successful, it was a time when his experience as a hitter in the KBO League was unproven. However, following Ryu Hyun-jin, Kang Jung-ho also achieved success, raising the status of players from the KBO League. Scouts’ perspectives changed as foreign players from the KBO League, such as Eric Thames and Meryl Kelly, played in the big league. 

Infielder Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) was highly rated, ranking 16th among the top 25 free agents selected by MLB.com in early November 2020. As Kim Ha-seong has established himself as a top infielder three years after entering the major league, generous evaluations and high expectations are being placed on Lee Jung-hoo as well. Among free agent outfielders, it is the third highest ranking after Cody Bellinger (4th) and Jorge Solaire (11th).짱구카지노

Meanwhile, the No. 1 player in the upcoming winter major league free agent rankings according to MLB.com is Shohei Ohtani, who also doubles as a pitcher. Second place is the best pitcher in Japanese professional baseball, Yoshinobu Yamamoto (Orix Buffaloes), and it is noticeable that Japanese players formed a ‘two top team’. 

followed by 3rd place Blake Snell (pitcher), 4th place Bellinger (outfielder/first baseman), 5th place Aaron Nola (starting pitcher), 6th place Josh Hader (pitcher), 7th place Sonny Gray (pitcher), and 8th place Jordan Montgomery. (pitcher), 9th place JD Martinez (designated hitter), 10th place Matt Chapman (3rd baseman), 11th place Solaire (outfielder/designated hitter), 12th place Clayton Kershaw (pitcher), 13th place Eduardo Rodriguez (pitcher), 14th place Above, Lee Jeong-hoo, 15th place Gurriel Jr., 16th place Shota Imanaga (pitcher), 17th place Hernández, 18th place Rhys Hoskins (first baseman), 18th place Lucas Giolito (pitcher), 20th place Yariel Rodriguez (pitcher), 21st place Whit Merrifield (inside and outfield utility), 22nd place Jamer Candelario (3rd baseman), 23rd place Jack Flaherty (pitcher), 24th place Hunter Renfro (outfielder), and 25th place Harrison Bader (outfielder). 

Among the 25 players in the MLB.com FA rankings, in addition to Lee Jeong-hoo, there are four players without major league experience: Yamamoto, Imanaga, and Rodriguez. Except for Lee Jeong-hoo, the three players have experience in Japanese professional baseball. Lee Jeong-hoo and Yamamoto are the youngest at 25 years old. Youth is your best weapon.


90 degree polite greeting → Anger over walk decision. Why was Fedi so excited about the referee, and why did coach Lee Kang-cheol protest so harshly?

Posted on 31 October 2023 by maxytee.com

NC Dinos ace Peddy set another record in his first appearance in the KBO League postseason.

Peddie appeared as a starting pitcher in the first game against KT in the 2023 KBO League Playoffs held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 30th, and became the winning pitcher with 12 strikeouts in 6 innings, allowing 3 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk, and 1 run. NC wins 9-5. 

The 12 strikeouts in one game is the all-time playoff record. The previous record was 11 (Son Dong-yeol in 1989, Flexen in 2020). Peddie achieved a record surpassing ‘national treasure pitcher’ Sun Dong-yeol. 

In the regular season, Peddie set the record of ’20 wins + 200 strikeouts’, the fifth in KBO history. It was a major record 37 years after the 1986 Seong-yeol riots. He once again set Seon Dong-yeol’s record by demonstrating his strikeout power in the playoffs. 

Peddie suffered an injury after being hit by a hit on the forearm of his right arm during the Gwangju KIA game on the 16th, his last appearance in the regular season. Because it took a long time for him to recover, he did not pitch until the semi-playoff series. He pitched in the first game of the playoffs 14 days after his injury, and set a record without suffering any side effects. 

On this day, in the 4th inning, Peddy turned KT’s 3rd to 5th central batting lineup of Alford, Park Byeong-ho, and Jang Seong-woo to KKK, and showed off his powerful pitching by striking out 5 batters in a row from the 2nd out in the 3rd to the 5th out. He overwhelmed the KT batting lineup with a fastball of up to 155 km and a sweeper as his main weapon.

However, there was another scene that made Peddie the most excited on the mound that day. Peddie met Moon Sang-cheol, who allowed a solo home run in the 3rd inning, again after one out in the 5th inning, and allowed a walk on a full count. The main weapon, the sweeper, went into the high strike zone border line on the outside, but umpire Lee Min-ho ruled it a ball and resulted in a walk.

Then, Peddie stretched out his hands towards pitcher Lee Min-ho and protested harshly. He could not hide his excitement rather than a single word of regret. This was the scene that Peddie was most excited about. His appearance was 180 degrees different from when he went on the mound at the bottom of the first inning, took off his hat towards the umpire, and bowed 90 degrees at the waist to politely bow. NC had a large lead of 8-1, but the referee’s decision to call the ball was too hasty. 

When referee Lee Min-ho tried to approach Peddy, coach Kang In-kwon quickly ran out of the dugout and stopped the referee. Fearing that Peddie might be kicked out for protesting the decision, he quickly took steps to extinguish the situation. Coach Kang tried to resolve the situation by talking to the referee, and in the meantime, the NC players calmed down Peddie. 

After that, it was over, and when the game was about to resume, pitching coach Kim Soo-kyung visited the mound and comforted Peddie once again. When Coach Kim tried to come up to the mound, Feddy made a gesture saying ‘It’s okay’ and they exchanged a few words with each other on the mound.  

This time, KT coach Lee Kang-cheol came out and appealed to the referee. He protested that since coach Kang In-kwon and then coach Kim Soo-kyung crossed the foul line twice, the pitcher (pedi) should be replaced by visiting the mound twice in one inning.

The umpires did not accept Manager Lee Kang-cheol’s appeal, judging that Manager Kang In-kwon’s appearance was not a visit to the mound to replace a pitcher, but rather an action to stop a decision protest. Coach Lee continued to appeal for a while despite the referee’s explanation.굿모닝토토

As the appeal grew longer, KT fans continued to chant ‘Lee Kang-cheol’ and support coach Lee. After the game, Manager Lee said, “Coach (Kang In-kwon) crossed the line, and the pitching coach also crossed the line. I appealed to him that (the pitcher) should be replaced.”

After everything was resolved, Peddie continued pitching. With one out and one on first base, Bae Jeong-dae hit a fly ball to center field for two outs. Then, pinch hitter Lee Ho-yeon hit a left-handed hit, putting him in danger with 2 outs and runners on first and second base, but he struck out Sang-soo Kim and roared toward the KT dugout on first base. It was the hottest ceremony of the day. 

After the game, Peddie commented on the walk decision protest. He said, “I thought it was a game where I had to be combative because it was the first game. That’s why I was excited too. The coach came out and calmed me down. I always know that the job of being a referee is difficult. I think I found my composure right away after thinking like that. “he said. 

Peddie smiled brightly as he was selected as Daily MVP in the first round of the playoffs and received a prize of 1 million won. 


‘Strangely poor defense’ Oh no! There was no night training… So did ‘Defense Fairy’ Hwang Jae-gyun and Bae Jeong-dae miss the ball?

Posted on 30 October 2023 by maxytee.com

 19 days of rest, almost 3 weeks. Thanks to the regular season ending a week earlier than other teams, the second-place KT Wiz got the rest that only the first-place team that advanced to the Korean Series could get. Therefore, there were many expectations that even the NC Dinos, who had great momentum in the semi-playoffs, would not be able to overcome the power of the well-rested KT Wiz.

However, in the first game, KT fell behind NC in all aspects. Starter William Cuevas gave up 7 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts in 3 innings. Fans who were expecting a great pitching battle between Eric Peddy, a three-time champion pitcher, and Cuevas, an undefeated pitcher with a 100% winning percentage, were taken aback.

The batters couldn’t even touch Peddie’s ball properly. He struck out 12 times to Peddie through the 6th inning, setting a new record for most strikeouts in the playoffs.

The biggest problem was defense. And that defense ultimately resulted in a 5-9 defeat. Third baseman Hwang Jae-gyun missed Park Min-woo’s ordinary infield fly in the top of the third inning when the team was down 0-2. Hwang Jae-gyun, who had been stepping back while watching the batted ball, went to the side again and put his glove on the ball, but the ball hit the tip of his glove and fell to the ground. Park Geon-woo, who went straight to third base, hit an RBI double, making the score 0-3, and second base runner Park Geon-woo also scored on a hit by the follow-up batter, making it 0-4.

In the top of the 4th inning, Cuevas caught Kim Joo-won’s sacrifice bunt at first base with no outs and immediately threw it to second base, which ended up being an error that ended up in center field.

With 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases, Kwon Hee-dong’s triple to right-center made it 1-8. However, at this time, Baejeongdae’s defense was also disappointing. It seemed like a batted ball that a normal Bae Jeong-dae could easily catch, but Bae Jeong-dae, who followed along well, hit the end of the outstretched glove and fell.

If Hwang Jae-gyun caught an infield fly and did not put Park Min-woo on base, and if Bae Jeong-dae had caught Kwon Hee-dong’s batted ball as usual, 3 points would not have been awarded. 1-8 and 1-5 are completely different score differences.

Overall, the defense of KT’s fielders was strangely sloppy on this day. Today’s lineup was one that paid particular attention to defense because it was the day Cuevas took the mound. He seemed unfamiliar with the floating ball or unable to adapt to the lighting.

KT had no night training while preparing for this playoffs. Training time was 2pm. The Blue and White match, which was held close to the playoffs, was held at 4 p.m. The lights would have been turned on in the second half of the game, but it would have been different from a night game like the first game.스포츠토토

It was clearly uncharacteristic of KT to play a strangely sloppy defense in a night game played 20 days after the last game on the 10th. Since they were players who had been playing night games for over 6 months, there would have been no problem, but did Hwang Jae-gyun and Bae Jeong-dae, who were said to be good at defending only on this day, make a mistake that they do not usually make?


Ki Sung-yong at a crossroads: “I think I’ve been lacking a lot so far… “What is important is whether it helps FC Seoul, so I will think carefully about it.”

Posted on 30 October 2023 by maxytee.com

Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = “I think we have been lacking a lot over the past three and a half years. “Whether it helps the team is important, so I will carefully consider the future while taking that into consideration.”

Ki Sung-Yong (34), the ‘icon’ representing FC Seoul, still seemed to be contemplating the future. As his contract expires at the end of this season, he is torn between renewing the contract and breaking up. He has not yet decided on either side, and said he plans to think carefully after the season ends.

Ki Sung-Yong played an active role in the midfield, including scoring in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Round 35 away game against Suwon FC held at Suwon Stadium on the 29th, leading FC Seoul to a 4-3 comeback victory, and then attended the joint coverage area ( He met with reporters at the Mixed Zone and said, “I will carefully consider my future, giving top priority to whether it will be helpful to the team after the season is over.”

On this day, Ki Sung-yong showed off his presence in the midfield. He led the build-up stably, scored a goal, and served as a mental supporter, helping Seoul achieve its first come-from-behind win of the season. In fact, according to ‘BePro Eleven’, the K-League’s official supplementary data provider, while playing full time, he hit 5 shots, made 2 effective shots, and recorded 1 success in dribbling and 1 opportunity creation. He also recorded one interception, one clearance and one tackle.

Ki Sung-yong said, “We have never had a comeback win this season, but I think it is a result of the players not giving up and giving their best until the end.” He added, “Many fans came to visit, and I am happy that I felt like I gave them at least a good gift.” reported.

He said, “It feels good to win again. “Anyway, I don’t like losing on the field, and I want to win no matter what the situation or the game is,” he said. “In fact, a game like today was a difficult game as we kept conceding goals, but the victory was due to the players’ willingness to play until the end. “It led to this,” he said, giving credit for the victory to his colleagues.

On this day, Ki Sung-yong scored a goal from a distance of about 60 meters. Just before crossing the halfway line, he exchanged glances with Na Sang-ho (27), who was penetrating into the penalty box, and then stabbed a long pass, and the ball flowed straight into the goal, scoring his second goal of the season. After scoring, he was shocked, but then he was happy and hugged his teammates.

Ki Sung-yueng said, “I was trying to pass to Sang-ho, but actually, I don’t remember the details. “I think I need to go back and watch the video again,” he said with a smile, and then said, “Anyway, a goal is a goal, so I’m grateful, and it always feels good to score a goal.” However, “It would have been nice if a goal had been scored at the beginning of the season, but it is unfortunate that a goal was scored at the end. “If I have the chance in the remaining three games, I want to score more goals,” he said, expressing his disappointment, while at the same time pledging to score additional goals.

Recently, Ki Sung-yong said, “What worries me the most is whether I can help the team or not. “My contract ends this year, but I still don’t know what I need personally or for the team,” he said. “I think Seoul also needs a generational change.” “I need to think clearly about whether I can be of help in that regard,” he confessed honestly.

Regarding this, some Seoul fans expressed concern and concern that Ki Sung-yong may have said this with retirement in mind. Other fans also expressed their hope that since he is a ‘Living Legend’ representing Seoul, he will definitely renew his contract and stay together for a longer period of time.

Ki Sung-yueng said, “(The statement at the time) was not about retirement, but anyway, my contract was ending this year, and when I looked back at myself and the team over the past three and a half years, I thought a lot about whether I was lacking in my role as a senior player or in my role on the field.” “In the end, the top priority is whether it will help the team.” “I will carefully consider my future after the season ends,” he said cautiously.토스카지노

He said, “I think it’s most important to figure out which direction Seoul is best heading in and what Seoul’s problems are. There have been pains over the past four years. “I feel a great deal of responsibility for that,” he said. “So I need time to think about it, and I will carefully think about which choice to make is best for the team.” “Throughout my career, I have always made the right choices and good decisions, so I will think carefully and make a decision this time as well.”

With Seoul’s retention already confirmed, they cannot rise higher than 7th place even if they win all of their remaining games. Therefore, there is bound to be a lack of sense of purpose or motivation. Nevertheless, after being classified as the final group, the team continues to be in a good mood by winning both games.

Ki Sung-Yong said, “Each game is very precious. Of course, you may think that being down to the Final B group may lower your motivation, but playing as a professional player is precious in itself, and I want to win all three remaining games. “And I think that’s what we need to do,” he said, ending the interview by pledging to win, saying, “We will try to win as many games as possible, and prepare well for the next game away to Jeju United so that we can definitely win.”


The Major League is obsessed with Korea and Japan, and a Japanese pitcher with 146km and 70 wins also announces his entry into the Major League… “It’s not overwhelming, but we don’t need a lot of money, 6 clubs are interested” US media evaluation

Posted on 30 October 2023 by maxytee.com

Nippon Ham Fighters Naoyuki Uwasawa (29) is challenging the major league.

American media outlet MLB Trade Rumors reported on the 29th (Korean time), “Nippon Ham right-handed starting pitcher Uwasawa held a press conference and announced his plans to advance to the Major League. “Because Uwasawa is not yet a full-fledged free agent, he could advance to the major leagues through posting.” 

Uwasawa is a starting pitcher with a total of 173 games (1,118 ⅓ innings) in Japanese professional baseball, with 70 wins, 62 losses, 1 hold, and an ERA of 3.19. MLB Trade Rumors said, “Uwasawa turns 30 in February next year. He introduced Woo and Sawa, saying, “He had a walk rate of 7.5% and a strikeout rate of 19.7%.”

Major league clubs are paying attention to the Asian market this coming winter. Aside from Shohei Ohtani (Angels), Cody Bellinger (Cubs), and Blake Snell (San Diego), there are not many big players in this winter’s free agent market, and in Asia, Yoshinobu Yamamoto (Orix), Jung-hoo Lee (Kiwoom), and Shota Imanaga (Yokohama) This is because special stars such as ) declared their entry into the major league. 

MLB Trade Rumors said, “Since his debut in Japanese professional baseball in 2014, Uwasawa has been selected as an All-Star three times and has grown into a reliable starting pitcher in both his performance and durability. “He suffered a fracture after being hit by a line drive in 2019, but has returned in good health by pitching at least 152 innings over the past three seasons,” he explained. 

This media outlet consistently mentioned Uwasawa in its podcast. This is because Uwasawa consistently expressed his desire to advance to the major leagues. MLB Trade Rumors said, “Uwasawa’s speed is not fast, with an average speed of 90.8 miles per hour (146.1 km). Also, he doesn’t have the same pitch that allows him to strike out a lot or the same control that Kohei Arihara (Softbank) had when he entered the major leagues. Nevertheless, major league clubs are evaluating how competitive Uwasawa can be in the big league.”짱구카지노

Japanese media outlet Sports Hochi said in September, “Texas, Arizona, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Cubs, and Angels are all observing Uwasawa. “There is considerable interest in Uwasawa among major league clubs.” MLB Trade Rumors commented, “Uwasawa is not as good as stars like Yamamoto or Imanaga, but he could be an interesting player in the market for semi-level starting pitchers who do not need a large contract.” 


The first round of the playoffs is ‘arm wrestling’

Posted on 29 October 2023 by maxytee.com

The two best foreign pitchers will face off on the road to the Korean Series.

NC Dinos Eric Peddie (30, USA), who dominated the KBO League mound with 20 wins this year, and KT Wiz William Cuevas (33, Venezuela), who recorded 12 wins and undefeated after joining as a substitute last June, are in the first round of the playoffs. encountered in.

NC and KT will play the first round of the playoffs with 3 wins out of 5 at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 30th. NC, ranked 4th this season, defeated the Doosan Bears in the wild card game and then advanced to the playoffs by completely defeating 3rd place SSG Landers in the semi-playoffs by winning all three games.

In response, KT finished the pennant race in second place and prepared for the playoffs with ease. After the Suwon Doosan game on the 10th, which was the last game of the regular season, we took a break of nearly 3 weeks.

NC and KT are known as the youngest teams in domestic professional baseball. NC broke the KBO League’s eight-team system and joined the first team in 2013. KT, which witnessed the founding of NC, emerged as the 10th professional baseball team in 2015, two years later. In the beginning, both teams were ranked at the bottom, but NC won the overall championship in 2020 and KT in 2021. This is the first time the two teams have met on the fall baseball stage.

NC, aiming to take the lead, selected Ace Peddie, who won this season’s Triple Crown, as the starter for the first game. Peddie recorded 20 wins and 6 losses in 30 games this year. He conquered the 20-win milestone again in three years since Raul Alcantara (31, Dominican Republic), who played for Doosan in 2020. Additionally, he won three awards as a pitcher with 209 strikeouts and an ERA of 2.00.

However, Peddie did not finish the pennant race well. In the game against Gwangju KIA Tigers on the 16th, his right forearm was injured after being hit by an opposing hitter’s hard hit. Since then, he has never played in the postseason because his injury has not healed. However, Pedi’s presence cannot be ignored. Just the possibility that Fedi could appear put pressure on the opposing team, which acted as NC’s invisible strength.

Cuevas, who is about to face off against Fedy, is the leader in winning percentage this season. He is also a key player in KT’s integrated championship in 2021. At that time, he led KT to the Korean Series by pitching 7 scoreless innings in the first-place match against the Samsung Lions, and also contributed to the overall victory by allowing 1 run in 7 2/3 innings in the first game of the Korean Series against Doosan.

Cuevas left KT in May of last year due to an elbow injury, but after joining as a substitute in June of this year, he performed well with 12 wins and no losses. Of course, the winning percentage was his. In particular, KT recorded an overwhelming win rate of 14 wins in 18 games in which Cuevas appeared.굿모닝토토

Fedi and Cuevas dominate the opposing batting line with similar types of balls. Peddie is a sweeper pitch with a speed of 140 km/h, which is a style that induces hitters to miss swings. I have more fun with a ball that bends laterally more than a slider. Cuevas’ breaking ball is also sharp. Although he’s not much of a sweeper, he does strike out with a sharp cutter to the left. How both batting lineups attack this breaking ball will likely be the key to winning the first game.

Meanwhile, KT excluded key hitter Kang Baek-ho (24) from the playoff entry. Kang Baek-ho suffered a rupture in his side muscle during a recent team match against Blue and White. In the end, he was unable to appear on the fall baseball stage.


‘I can’t believe he’s more comfortable with a pedi than a Korean pitcher.’ Batting average 0.625, 2 home runs. KT’s natural enemy is the strongest pitcher with 20 wins… The best game in PO’s first game is here

Posted on 29 October 2023 by maxytee.com

The key to the first round of the playoffs between KT Wiz and NC Dinos is the battle between the best foreign pitchers.

The key word is who will lead the first game to victory between William Cuevas, the king of 100% winning percentage with 12 wins and no losses, and Eric Peddy, who has virtually booked the regular season MVP title as a three-time pitcher with 20 wins, an ERA of 2.00, and 209 strikeouts.

For KT, it is important to know how to deal with Peddy, the best pitcher, but KT has Peddy’s natural enemy. This is foreign hitter Anthony Alford.

As Peddie was the best pitcher, his hitting percentage was low and he rarely hit home runs. While he pitched 180⅓ innings in 30 games, his hitting percentage was only .277, and he hit only 9 home runs. He got hit about once every three games.

If you were to introduce the hitters who had the honor of hitting a home run against Peddie, the first hitter to be named would be Alford. He hit his best against Peddie. He had 5 hits in 8 at-bats, raising his opponent’s batting average to a whopping 60.2 5 rina, and hitting two home runs. He is the only batter to hit two home runs from Peddie.

He hit a two-run shot in Suwon Gyeonggi on May 9, and a solo shot in Suwon Gyeonggi on August 13. Both led to Peddie’s two-seam home run. He walked one and struck out only one. He could certainly be called an invincible enemy.

Alford said he felt more comfortable dealing with Peddie than with Korean pitchers. He said, “Korean pitchers throw a variety of pitches to me and use different ball combinations, but I have seen a lot of foreign pitchers like Peddie in the United States.”

Teammate Kang Baek-ho also hit a home run, but it is unfortunate that he cannot participate in the playoffs due to injury.

For Samsung, Kim Tae-gun and Koo Ja-wook hit home runs, while Lotte Jeong Bo-geun, Kiwoom Russell, LG Austin, and SSG Heredia are the ones who hit home runs for Peddie. There were no home run hitters at Hanwha, KIA, and Doosan.스포츠토토

Alford appeared in 133 games this season and recorded a batting average of .289 (142 hits in 491 at-bats) with 15 home runs and 70 RBIs. He also showed off his quick feet by recording 17 stolen bases. It is unfortunate that he lacks batting judgment or throwing ability in defense, but he has clutch ability in batting and hits a shot at important moments.

In this year’s game against NC, he had a batting average of .302, 19 hits in 59 at-bats, 4 home runs, and 14 RBIs. He had the most hits and RBIs of any of the nine teams he faced. These playoffs are even more anticipated.


There was no Saudi flex effect… 1 trillion won was spent on recruiting players, but the number of spectators actually decreased.

Posted on 29 October 2023 by maxytee.com

 The money was spent, but the audience disappeared.

Britain’s ‘The Sun’ said on the 29th (Korean time), “The Saudi Arabian Pro League spent a whopping 750 million pounds (approximately 1.2343 trillion won) in the summer transfer market. However, the effect was minimal,” adding, “League spectators “It continues to decline compared to last season,” the report said.

Saudi Arabia, which is trying to revitalize its domestic league through massive investments starting with the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, made a monstrous move in this summer’s transfer market. They attracted attention by recruiting several star players such as Neymar, Karim Benzema, and N’Golo Kante.

Even Liverpool legend Jordan Henderson, who supported homosexuality and was critical of Islam, gave in to Saudi Arabia’s huge salary offer. Through these aggressive moves, Saudi Arabia has more star players than other small and medium-sized European leagues.

However, the effect compared to the investment is low. The Sun pointed out, “The Saudi league spent 750 million pounds on recruiting stars in the summer transfer market alone. However, the attendance performance is not good. Only 696 spectators attended the Al Iti Park and Al Riyadh matches.”토스카지노

The Sun said, “The decline in attendance in the Saudi league throughout this season is unusual. Al Ittihad, which brought in Benzema, Kante, and Fabinho in the summer, is ranked first in terms of attendance with 29,044 people per game this season, but last season (average of 40,000). “This is a significant decrease compared to 453 people,” he pointed out.

The media said, “The highest attendance in the Saudi league this season was the match between Il Hilal and Al Fayha (59,600 people). This match was Neymar’s debut match,” and “Al Hilal-Al Ahly, which the sovereign wealth fund invested in, -Except for Al Nasr-Al Ittihad, there is no team with more than 10,000 spectators.”


‘Legend’ Jeter and Ramirez caught up… ARI Marte, faded PS 17G consecutive hits

Posted on 29 October 2023 by maxytee.com

Reporter Sangjin Oh = Ketel Marte (30, Arizona Diamondbacks), who became a hitting machine in fall baseball, continued his postseason hitting record, but the shine faded due to the team’s loss.

Marte started as the second hitter and second baseman in Game 1 of the World Series (WS) against the Texas Rangers held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on the 28th (Korean time) and recorded 1 hit and 2 RBI in 5 at-bats. . Arizona lost 5-6 after a walk-off solo shot by Adolis Garcia in the 11th inning of overtime.

Marte appeared in 12 games this postseason, including the National League Championship Series (NLCS), and recorded a hit in all of them. In particular, in the NLCS, he won the series MVP award with a batting average of 0.387 (12 hits in 31 at-bats), 3 RBIs, 1 stolen base, and an OPS of 0.987 in 7 games.

He also achieved his new record in Game 7 of the NLCS. Marte, who first entered the postseason stage in 2017, recorded hits in all four games. In addition to the 12-game hitting streak this postseason, the hitting streak continued for a whopping 16 games. It was the highest record of all time, surpassing the postseason debut consecutive hitting record (15 games) previously held by Marquis Grissom (1995-1996).

In his efforts, Marte also challenged the record for longest postseason hitting streak (17 games) held by Hank Bauer (1956-1958), Derek Jeter (1998-1999), and Manny Ramirez (2003-2004).

Marte, who was retired by a ground ball in his first at-bat in the top of the first inning, hit a ground ball to first base with one out and third base tied 2-2 in the top of the third inning, but succeeded in bringing in a runner on third base through a fielder’s choice. He then succeeded in stealing a base and advanced to second base, but was unable to score due to a missed follow-up hit.

His record was achieved in the 5th inning. In the top of the 5th inning, with Arizona leading 4-3, with one out and a runner on second base, Marte hit a curveball on the 4th pitch from Texas starter Evoldi and hit a 1-run double that hit the center wall. It was the moment when he tied for first place in the longest consecutive game hitting streak in the postseason (17 games). Marte celebrated with a smile at second base, but the joy did not last long.짱구카지노

Marte then retired with a ground ball in the 7th inning and a straight hit in the 10th and was unable to add any more hits. Arizona went into overtime when closer Paul Seawald allowed a tying two-run shot to Corey Seager with one out in the bottom of the 9th inning, and the team lost when Miguel Castro hit a walk-off home run to Garcia in the bottom of the 11th inning.

Although the team lost its luster, Marte’s hitting streak continues. If Marte adds a hit in Game 2 of the WS held on the 29th, he will surpass Bauer, Jeter, and Ramirez to become sole first place. Attention is focused on whether Marte can achieve a new record and lead Arizona’s counterattack in the second game of the WS.
