Are you depressed about the trade profit and loss calculation? that’s baseball
It was July 27, 2021.메이저놀이터 In order to solve the chronic second base problem, Kiwoom made a big deal to fill the gap between Woo-jin Ahn and Hyun-hee Han (Lotte), who were punished for the Corona 19 drinking wave, and Jake Brigham, who were absent due to personal reasons. It’s already been 2 years.
Looking only at the second half of 2021, it was a subtle victory for Kiwoom. Jeong Chan-heon recorded an average ERA of 3.99 in 11 games in the second half. At the time, the Kiwoom starting lineup did not have a card to support Eric Yokishi. Jeong Chan-heon did a great job.
On the other hand, Seo Geon-chang only scored 0.247, 2 homers, 24 RBIs and 33 points in 68 games in the second half of 2021. The issue of’salary self-cutting’ that broke out ahead of the 2021 season was also meaningless as a result. I decided that I was not competitive enough to exercise my FA qualifications, so I chose FA again.
2022 season. Jeong Chan-heon’s performance fell short of the 2021 season. In 20 games, 5 wins and 6 losses, an average ERA of 5.36. His pitching intervals were irregular, and he sometimes went to the bullpen for team reasons. From the postseason, he was virtually out of power. However, unlike Seo Geon-chang, he boldly exercised his FA status after the season. As expected, Kiwoom told Seo Geonchang that he had no intention of accompanying him.
Seo Kun-chang failed to rebound even in the 2022 season. In 77 games, he had a batting average of 0.224, 2 homers, 18 RBIs, 39 points and 8 steals, and an OPS of 0.605. I had no choice but to choose the number 3 of FA. His salary was cut by 200 million won. However, he faced the variable of reuniting with director Yeom Kyung-yeop, who selected him during the Nexen days.
Jeong Chan-heon was a missing free agent throughout the spring camp. Kiwoom was consistent with indifference from the beginning, and then set up a sign & trade policy. Still, Jeong Chan-heon’s time has not come. On the other hand, Seo Geon-chang prepared for the season faithfully at Scottsdale Spring Camp. Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop reminded Seo Kun-chang of the good batting mechanic and rhythm of the past. He even professed to be the starting second baseman. Of course, he also said, “I ate MVP with 200 hits, so why change (batting form)”.
On March 27, during the demonstration game, Jeong Chan-heon signed a two-year, 860 million won contract with Kiwoom, dramatically extending his active duty. Kiwoom changed his policy and chose to reunite with Jung Chan-heon. Jeong Chan-heon, who spent the winter with his personal training, went through a time of preparation in the 2nd Army and took over as a starter from May.
Looking at the environment before the start of the 2023 season, Seo Kun-chang was definitely getting energy. However, as the opening two months are approaching, the two are still struggling. In 31 games, Seo Kun-chang had a batting average of 0.207, 12 RBIs, 14 runs, and an OPS of 0.590. The defense was also a bit unstable. Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop gradually reduces the use of Seo Geon-chang. Even without Seo Geon-chang, there is no big problem with LG fighting for the lead. Seo Kun-chang’s influence in LG is not that great.
Jeong Chan-heon left a strong impression in two games right after his return. On the 5th, he pitched well with Gocheok SSG Jeonseo 6 innings, 2 hits, 3 strikeouts and 1 run, and on the 11th Jamsil LG JeonSeo 6 innings, 6 hits, 2 strikeouts, 2 strikeouts and 1 run. While Seo Geon-chang is at a standstill, Jung Chan-heon is leading the way.
It wasn’t. Jeong Chan-heon was not good with 5 hits, 1 strikeout, 2 walks and 6 runs in 4 innings against Gocheok Doosan on the 17th. After coming to Kiwoom, Jeong Chan-heon can distinguish between good days and bad days relatively clearly. When it’s good, it’s untouchable, but when it’s a little bad, it’s a style that gets concentrated hits. On this day, it was a big deal that he collapsed in the first inning and gave up 4 runs. I tried to endure until 4 innings, but Kiwoom could not reverse the dragged flow. It was also unlucky for him to become a losing pitcher as he did not receive support from the batting line in all 2 games he threw well.
Both teams’ big deal P&L is close to loose-rouge at this point. Still, Jeong Chan-heon dramatically signed a free agent contract, and there is a high possibility that he will continue to play as a fifth starter. Seo Geon-chang can get another chance at some point. Coach Yeom has yet to send Seo Geon-chang to the second team. It is difficult to conclude that a dramatic turnaround and a win-win trade will not work.
If the trade is done, there is a point of view that why the profit and loss calculation should be considered, and that the climate of calculating the profit and loss rather shrinks the clubs. But fans love to weigh the profit and loss calculations. Pros are strictly fan first. In addition, there must be such an evaluation device in order to lay the groundwork for continuing a healthy trading culture. Seo Kun-chang and Jeong Chan-heon have plenty of time to rebound. You have to persevere.
