“I believe Ha-seong Kim of the Core Group has the talent to sign a long-term contract and advance to the postseason.”바카라사이트
Joe Musgrove (31, San Diego Padres), who boasts a 5-year, $100 million (approximately 128.5 billion won) contract, has revealed his trust in his teammates. Musgrove told the San Diego Union Tribune on the 21st (hereinafter Korean time), “Whether the Padres sell or not, I believe that the core group Ha-seong Kim, Manny Machado, and Fernando Tatis Jr. have the talent to sign long-term contracts and advance to the postseason.”
San Diego is 46-51, 4th in the National League West and 6th in the National League Wild Card Race. They are 6.5 games behind the third-place Philadelphia Phillies. Advancing into the postseason is not easy. In this situation, the status of Kim Ha-sung from the perspective of his teammates was revealed.
In the end, Musgrove said that Kim Ha-seong was also a key member to the point of signing a long-term contract like himself, Macha-do, and Tatis. And he wasn’t pessimistic about San Diego’s chances of making the postseason. It’s a disappointing result compared to the pre-season expectations, but it’s true that it’s not the time to give up.
“Whether we buy or sell our team, it’s a really good team,” said Musgrove. In reality, it is difficult to advance into the postseason, and there are reports from local media that it is not going to be a seller. There was also a media that insisted that Kim Ha-seong should be traded.
But Musgrove said: “There are players the club definitely won’t sell. Anyway, at the end of the year, Blake Snell and Josh Hader will be free agents. We’re not the same team without them, but we’re a good team. (Speaking of going out as a seller) That’s not a big worry. We think about winning every game and winning as many games as possible.”
Anyway, the trade deadline is about 10 days away. The time for the San Diego leadership to choose is approaching. Still, the dominant observation is that San Diego is unlikely to return to rebuilding mode overnight, even though San Diego has built up this amount of members in recent years.
“San Diego wants to be a buyer,” said Sports Illustrated’s Fan Nation Inside the Padres. “They hate being one of the biggest failures of the 21st century while continuing to fight for a postseason spot.”
But it left a lasting impression. “At some point, San Diego may have to deal with stars like Snell and Hader,” said Inside the Padres. Regardless of San Diego’s stance, the two are classified as trade candidates as preliminary free agents.
