Lotte, forget ‘April spring day’ “I almost found a solution to the problem”

Spring was the season for Lotte last year as well. After the opening, Lotte finished April with an odds rate of 0.609 (14 wins, 1 draw, 9 losses) and ran second overall. On top of this, the first day of May, ahead of Lee Dong-il, held the Sunday game and swept LG and Jamsil 3 consecutive games to boost momentum.

However, Lotte’s spring, which was ‘just in case’, was ‘as expected’ too short. Lotte collapsed with a monthly win rate of 0.346 (9 wins and 17 losses) in May and started to go down again without a break. Expressions I didn’t want to hear began to appear again. Its name is ‘Bomde’, which means it is only good in spring. Lotte met a fairly old disgrace modifier again.

Instead of avoiding the problem, Lotte chose to accept the problem and actively fight it. It is important to show results at the beginning of the season, but it is necessary to maintain that trend for a certain period of time to be able to compete in the summer rankings. 슬롯사이트

Coach Bae said, “Last year, in April, the start was very good, but it fell as we went to May and June.” It was confirmed that the senses also fell,” he said. Here, coach Bae said, “All members, starting with the general manager and coach, and the power analysis part, are very worried about how to supplement that part, and have found some answers.” Coach Bae also said, “I can’t say for sure whether it will work or not, but I can tell you that the answer is in the process of finding it.”

The reason Lotte collapsed at every juncture before last year could be the problem of managing the pace of individual players, or it could be the lack of depth of the entire team.

For example, last season Lotte ran second overall with a team ERA of 3.00 for the month of April, but the team ERA for the month of May fell to 4.79. Numerically, Lotte in April and Lotte in May were completely different teams. In addition, Choi Jun-yong, who was the nucleus of the bullpen, threw 14.2 innings in 13 games for a month in April and achieved a WHIP (on-base percentage per inning) of 0.61. several came out

Lotte’s new season matches are also unlikely to be very different. It is expected that the success or failure of the season will be different around the entryway from the beginning to the middle. Lotte is said to be putting more effort into this part than in the previous season. Pitching coach Bae Young-soo also revealed a part of the specific solution, citing it as a kind of ‘trade secret’, but expressed his intention to prove it with ‘results’.
