Is it the lip service of a veteran who is the team’s oldest and who is about to pitch in 1,000 career games for the first time in the KBO League, or is it a sharp tip? The stance of Jung Woo-ram (Hanwha), whom we met at Bellbank Park in Mesa, Arizona, the United States on the 4th (hereafter Korean time), is the latter. 먹튀검증
Hanwha is taking a calm, long breath, and careful approach to unlock the potential of Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun. General Manager Son Hyuk said, “Honestly, out of the top-notch promising pitchers other than Hyunjin (Toronto Blue Jays) and Gwanghyuni (SSG), which one exploded from the first year? There is none but the two.” This is true.
Still, it is true that the industry has a dominant view that it is worth looking forward to. The two young guns easily throw fast balls around 155 km. There is obviously a downside to the ball flying around, but the majority view is that it is a factor that can be resolved with time and experience.
From Jung Woo-ram’s point of view, Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun are a bit different. “If you look at the juniors during camp, the first and first rookie pitchers of each team have a burden. Even if you have good things, there are things that require strength. But I think these players go beyond that. So, as a senior, I want to watch him for a year.”
It is the very beginning of spring camp. Jung Woo-ram, Moon Dong-ju, and Kim Seo-hyun are not yet at the stage of active skinship. In fact, Jung Woo-ram is a very difficult senior for Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun. Jung Woo-ram also has no intention of burdening them.
Jung Woo-ram said, “If I spend a year without getting sick, then I wonder if I can give you some advice. Now is not the time to give advice. They accumulate experience for a year, and based on that experience, when data comes out, they feel it and approach it first.”
Although Moon Dong-ju is in his second year, he was unable to play full-time last year due to an injury. From Jung Woo-ram’s point of view, Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun are both rookies. I didn’t have a chance to properly feel the professional world on my own. Jung Woo-ram said, “Last year when I was in the 2nd division, Dong-ju asked me about something, so I told him about my experience.”
To Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun, Jeong Woo-ram is like a kind of textbook. Jung Woo-ram already knows what to say at what point and how to approach it. However, he decided that now is not the time. However, Jung Woo-ram said, “I think both of them are players who exceed the rookie level. I am also curious.” There was power in these words.
