It was only 50 percent of the original plan.” In the first half of the year, the MVP of “Woo” started and finished the game with five starters

It was only 50% of the season’s plan, but the players worked hard, so I held on well.”

LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said about the first half, “It was possible to do so, but I can get it at least.” Manager Yeom made an early first half settlement ahead of an away game against the Kiwoom Heroes at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 2nd.고소득알바

LG, which started with a loss of winning power, such as closing pitcher Ko Woo-seok’s advance to the U.S., Lee Jung-yong’s enlistment in the military, and Ham Deok-ju’s surgery, had to spend a difficult first half of the season due to the sluggish foreign one-two punch in May and the injury of Lim Chan-kyu and Choi Won-tae in June. Nevertheless, it was able to finish the first half while maintaining its top rank by ranking first.

Reflecting on the first half of the season, Yeom said, “It’s a shame. It was only about 50 percent of the time when I first started the camp,” adding, “I want to evaluate it as the first half of the year when the players really worked hard and endured well despite many difficulties.” When asked how much he considered his performance as “Suwumi Yangga” in the past, he said, “I could do it, but considering many things, I think I can do it.”

Son Joo-young and Yoo Young-chan were selected as MVPs in the first half of the year.

Son is making his first full-time appearance as the fifth starting pitcher. He has posted five wins and five losses and an ERA of 3.83 in 16 appearances. He pitched 80 innings to rank 21st overall in the number of innings. He ranks 10th among Korean pitchers in terms of quality starts, which is small as four out of 16 games, but he pitched more than five innings, which is his first full-time starter, but he is playing a good role.

Yeom cited healthy rotation as the MVP reason. “If (Son) Joo-young had shaken up, our team would have shaken up a lot,” Yeom said. “Especially in June, two Korean starters were missing, and Joo-young kept her position. She kept the mound as a whole.”

Yoo Young-chan joined the Korean pro league for the first time last year and recorded six wins, three losses and one save and 12 holds, and was promoted to the closing pitcher immediately, but is posting better-than-expected results. He has posted five wins, three losses and 17 saves and one hold with an ERA of 1.89, in 36 appearances. He is tied for third in saves category after Oh Seung-hwan (24) of the Samsung Lions, and Jeong Hae-young (21) of the KIA Tigers. He pitched in the eighth inning and posted multi-inning saves, and is thus keeping the win by playing multi-inning games.

Coach Yeom said, “Young-chan played a lot of double innings. The game where Young-chan threw a double inning was a game that could be passed. If that game went on, the aftermath could have gone on for 5, 6 games, at most a month,” adding, “We’re in this position now because Young-chan cut it all off.” “That was the case with NC on Sunday. If Young-chan couldn’t stop it, it was a game that was overturned,” he said.

“Not only our team, but all the coaches and all the clubs had a difficult first half,” Yeom said. “That’s how much this season has been leveled,” adding, “So I think the first half proved that it will be a season that no one knows until the end. The ranking will be determined by which team prepares well and which team has fewer injured players.”
