The Seo Kun-chang trade has already been 2 years… LG can not continue to suffer, ‘endless drive’ towards the presidency


 If you know it, it has already been two years since the Seo Gun-chang trade.

On July 27, 2021, LG carried out a one-on-one trade, receiving Seo Geon-chang from Kiwoom and giving away Jeong Chan-heon. It was a winning move to win the Korean Series for LG, which was always worried about the second baseman. Now, two years later, this trade remains the worst big deal in LG history.

Seo Kun-chang received full support from his former coach and director Yeom Gyeong-yeop, but he is still unable to revive. On the other hand, Jeong Chan-heon played a big role as a Kiwoom 5 starter in the first half of this year. This trade is slowly leaning toward growth. And LG is showing signs of resolving the second baseman’s concerns this year.

The opportunity came to Shin Min-jae after turning around. He started as a major runner, but was evaluated as “the swing line is fine” by coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop. When Seo Geon-chang was pushed out and Kim Min-seong was injured while active, Shin Min-jae did not miss the golden opportunity.

In the first half of 66 games, 33 hits in 96 at-bats batting average 0.344 7 RBIs 24 runs slugging percentage 0.354 on-base percentage 0.400 OPS 0.754 batting average 0.375. It was a performance that exceeded expectations. The ninth hitter with mobility and accuracy is showing signs of resolving the second baseman’s concerns.

So LG seems to need a player who can take on the original Shin Min-jae role. I found the right person in NC. Choi Seung-min (27), a right-handed and left-handed outfielder, joined NC as a training player in 2015. He played 116 games in the first team, but there was no place in the coaching system Kang In-kwon this year. NC is also rich in the outfield.

LG paid attention to Choi Seung-min’s ability to carry out operations as a fast main force and a major runner. It is certain that Shin Min-jae’s original role will be entrusted to him. In the postseason of a one-point game, a large runner is absolutely necessary. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop always brought one runner specialist to the first team even during the Kiwoom and SK command towers.

This trade was carried out on the break like the Seo Gunchang Big Deal two years ago. At the time, it was during the suspension of the season due to Corona 19. The similarity is that the trade deadline is imminent. In terms of the weight of the trade, it is incomparable to that time. This is because it is not the trade of the main axes.토토사이트

But at least for LG, the importance of this trade doesn’t diminish at all compared to two years ago. Perhaps the meaning could be greater in terms of completely covering chronic holes and improving the structure of the team. If you try to trade, you may succeed or you may fail. But if you don’t even try, you can’t succeed forever. LG quietly took a big drive again.
