The San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball (MLB), who spent a total of 113 million dollars (approximately 148 billion won) over 6 years to recruit Lee Jeong-hoo (25) this winter, is in the middle of winter. The ‘report card’ is barely enough to avoid a failing grade.One big hole has been filled with the recruitment of Lee Jeong-hoo, but the remaining strength has not been strengthened.CBS Sports of the United States gave San Francisco a ‘C grade’ in an article mid-term settlement of the free agent (FA) market for 30 MLB teams on the 3rd (Korean time).The media commented, “The only players San Francisco has recruited so far are Lee Jeong-hoo and catcher Tom Murphy, who are both risky but truly talented players. It is also fortunate that they brought in manager Bob Melvin.”He added, “We continue to make efforts to recruit the best free agent players, but most of them have failed. If we want to be accepted as a postseason contender, we need to have a strong season this winter.”
San Francisco, which has advanced to the postseason only once in the past seven seasons, has set Japanese pitchers Yoshinobu Yamamoto and Jeong-hoo Lee as its ‘two hitting targets’ in the free agent market. They invested a large amount of over $100 million in Lee Jeong-hoo to strengthen the outfield, but Yamamoto was lost to their local rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers.The Dodgers, who have Yamamoto, Shohei Ohtani, and top starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow, are the top overall team with an unquestionable ‘A grade’.The media expressed, “Even if we bring in only two top free agents from the Stove League, we can give them an A grade. Now, we can imagine a future where we have a championship parade.”Last year’s World Series runner-up Arizona Diamondbacks, who kept most of their strength in the free agent market, the Atlanta Braves, who recently acquired left-handed pitcher Chris Sale, and the New York Yankees, who acquired Juan Soto through a trade, also received ‘A grades’ from the media.Meanwhile, clubs that only lost power, including the Los Angeles Angels, who let Ohtani go, the Miami Marlins, Minnesota Twins, and Cleveland Guardians, 카지노사이트킹 received a failing grade of ‘F’.
