“First step in the LG dynasty?” 41-year-old FA Oh Seung-hwan feels awkward at the award ceremony… Complicated feelings toward the winning team

He won five combined titles (2005 2006 2011 2012 2013) with his own hands in the KBO League, and was the guardian deity of the Samsung dynasty.

However, it has already been 10 years since Oh’s last victory. While Oh was returning to the U.S. via Japan, Samsung failed to win a championship except the year 2014 when he left the team.

There is no satisfaction in the heart of a professional athlete. There is nothing but fiery competitiveness.

Oh Seung-hwan is still an FA, not a member of the ‘Samsung Lions’. 에볼루션 바카라사이트

He feels awkward both at the age of 41 and as a free agent. Prior to Oh, his team prioritized recruiting “finisher” Kim Jae-yoon for four years and 5.8 billion won (approx.

He also appeared at an award ceremony after a long time. “I’m here to receive the ‘Record of the Year (400 saves)’ award today, but I hope many of our players will come to next year’s award ceremony. I hope we can win a lot and show good performances for our players,” Oh said.

Even though he is a member of the FA, he has no intention of moving to another club. “I am still working out at Rafak even after the end of the season,” Oh said with a smile when asked a cautious question.

“Wasn’t (Lee Jong-yeol) too busy? I’m talking with him. I came early today and talked with him before the event. FA at my age… Without Samsung, I wouldn’t have had a baseball player like myself,” he added.

Besides the 400 saves, it was a monumental year for Oh. It was his first start in 2005. He pitched well with three runs in five innings, and returned to the closing game. He pitched in 58 games and 62 ⅔, recording four wins, five losses, 30 saves and two holds and an ERA of 3.45.

However, chances are high that Kim Jae-yoon will finish the game. “I think he only makes false promises to Samsung fans (about winning the championship and other good performances) every year,” Oh said. “My goal next year is to help my team win one more game.” As for Kim Jae-yoon, he reiterated, “I personally contacted him when I was in the U.S. He is a really good player.”

“I heard that our team’s biggest problem is the bullpen. Now that a good pitcher named Kim Jae-yoon is here, it will be of great help. I don’t care where I go. I’m not thinking about that. There’s no reason to be stubborn about a position. That’s a stupid idea.”

LG, which has won the title for the first time in 29 years, swept the five categories of this year’s front (under Cha Myung-seok), coach (Yum Kyung-yeop), coach (Lee Ho-joon), defense (Park Hae-min) and achievement (Shin Min-jae). Together, they expressed their pride that it will be the first step in the kingdom. “To win another championship next year, we need our players (Im Chan-kyu, Ham Deok-ju, and Kim Min-sung), who have been released as FA,” Park said in his acceptance speech. “Our goal is to catch our players.”

Hanwha, which ranked ninth, also smiled loudly, producing “Player of the year (Roh Si-hwan)” and “Newcomer (Moon Dong-ju).” On the other hand, there was only Oh Seung-hwan from Samsung at the award ceremony.

“I didn’t think about it while watching other teams win, but I’m especially jealous of LG’s win this time. When I came to today’s award ceremony, you kept talking about ‘first step in the kingdom’. It’s not going to be easy,” Oh said.

“I’ve been hearing about age since a few years ago. I’ve always said I’m confident, but I think my performance shows little by little. Still, I still have greed in the back of my mind. I hope the team will perform well, and lastly, while Samsung wins the championship, I want to have a season where I don’t have to mention my age.”
