As of the 22nd, the Lotte Giants are in last place in the exhibition game.
Only 1 win in 8 matches. 1 win, 6 losses, 1 draw is the report card Lotte accepted.
But it’s too early to be disappointed. This is because the best power has not yet been activated. A Lotte official said, “It was a time when I needed to supplement physically. Because there was a lot of movement in the spring camp, the players’ bodies were heavy overall. Now is the time to get out of that fatigue. From the game on the 23rd, things will change.”
What is interesting is Lotte’s lineup. Basically, we plan to create a two-track lineup.
However, the response to the opponent is somewhat surprising. It’s almost to the point where I think it’s going the opposite way. What is Lotte’s reverse idea lineup?
In matches where opponents are selected 1, 2, 3, Hwang Seong-bin and Ahn Kwon-soo are expected to use fast and moving players.
On the day when the 4th and 5th selections come out, the plan is to mainly appoint players with strength in hitting.
At first glance, I wonder if it should be the opposite. However, Lotte intends to push forward with this lineup with firm faith.
Park Heung-shik, head coach and batting coach of Lotte, said, “Anyway, it is very difficult to score points by hitting the balls of the opponent’s 1st, 2nd, and 3rd selections well. It can be said that it is difficult to defeat it only in a head-to-head match. Now our team has quite a few players who can run fast and shake opponents. The plan is to use those players to harass the opposing ace pitchers. If you go out a lot and keep shaking the opponent’s battery, there is a possibility that even ace pitchers will show a gap. I will play baseball that digs into that gap. In the 4th and 5th starting matches, we will see more aggressive offense. This plan is possible because the player base has grown that much안전놀이터. As the number of good players increases, the plan is to show more aggressive and active baseball. This is the conclusion the coach reached after consulting with the coaching staff. From the 23rd, we will show Lotte Baseball in earnest.”
He said that there was a reason for all the sluggishness so far.
Chief Park said, “Losing the game is also losing, but the content of the game itself was not good. The game didn’t work out because I didn’t take the movement off the bench. From the game on the 23rd, the coach will move a lot. I trained in Guam and had two transfers in Japan alone. And it is true that going to Busan was a bit of a burden physically. Falling and rising once at this time can be more helpful in the regular season. A lot of fatigue has gone away now. It is a situation where you can try to win with the best power. In the batting sector, players are making more and more accurate hits. From the game on the 23rd, we will be able to show you a different type of baseball.”
Can Lotte, the last place, show the real baseball they prepared before the exhibition game is over? First of all, we need to focus on baseball today.
