Brandon Crawford (36, San Francisco Giants) showed his affection for the team.
Crawford looked back on his performance last year in an interview with NBC Sports, an American media outlet, on the 5th (hereafter local time). At that time, he achieved the lowest record in his career with 94 hits in 407 at-bats, 9 homers, and 52 RBIs in 118 games.
He left a disappointing look in terms of defensive power as well. He previously won four Gold Gloves and established himself as one of San Francisco’s best shortstops, but in the 2022 season, his frequent grounder errors drew criticism from local fans. 토토사이트
Regarding this, Crawford said, “In August and September, there were definitely areas where we improved defensively. It was concluded that he is rebounding as a hitter as well.”
Some local fans are looking suspiciously at this statement. That conclusion came, but why was I notified that I had to give up the shortstop position for Carlos Correa (28, Minnesota Twins)?
Earlier in December, President Farhan Zaidi was criticized for unilaterally notifying Crawford to recruit Correa. In the end, Correa’s transfer was canceled and the voice of criticism grew louder. Some argued that it was not polite to a player who has been active as a one-club man for over 10 years since 2011.
He received a coercive notice, but Crawford’s love for the team remained. “I don’t want to go anywhere else,” he said. My dream is to remain a giant.”
This season is the final season of Crawford’s contract extension. Attention is focusing on whether he will be able to wash away the humiliation of last year and become a ‘legend’ again.
