The festival is over. War begins again.
The feast of the stars is over. Most of the 10 KBO teams resume training from the 17th and 18th. The second half is different from the first half. The weight of winning and losing a game is completely different. Coincidentally, 7 clubs in the 3rd to 9th places, excluding ‘2nd round’ LG, SSG, and ‘1 weak’ Samsung, are close to each other.온라인카지노
As of the first half, the gap between 3rd place Doosan (42 wins, 36 losses, 1 draw, win rate 0.538) and 9th place Kiwoom (38 wins, 46 losses, 2 draws, win rate 0.452) is only 7 games. 7 teams lined up by an average of 1 game difference. Extremely speaking, in the second half, Doosan could go down to 9th place, or Kiwoom could go up to 3rd place. Even if the possibility is not high, there is no law that it won’t happen.
Doosan ran a 9-game winning streak at the end of the first half. The batting line, which had not been cool throughout the first half, was on a terrifying rise as it created synergy with the mound and defense. The 6th place KIA, which recorded 7 wins and 3 losses in the last 10 games in the first half, also completely changed the atmosphere with the effect of Kim Tae-gun trade, the re-recruitment of Thomas Panoni, and the addition of Mario Sanchez.
This is a case in which KT and Hanwha have continued their upward trend since June without breaking significantly until the end of the first half. KT was an injured ward at the beginning of the season, but it is gradually rising after reorganizing power for each part. As Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho became established, a certain winning formula was created, unlike his previous coaching days.
On the other hand, NC and Lotte in 4th and 5th places, and Kiwoom in 9th place, finished poorly in the first half. When NC threatened the second round in early June, the bullpen’s performance beyond expectations and the harmony of the other line stood out. However, cracks began to appear on the mound from the end of June. The side effects of leaks in the starting lineup led to the bullpen, and the batting line turned to the bottom, and the Park Kun-woo incident was also fatal. Lotte also lost the same momentum as at the beginning of the season as the bullpen anxiety and the cycles of the other lines overlapped. Kiwoom still has a problem with the batting line that has not been resolved for years. Starting pitchers tend to lose pace after the break.
However, there is plenty of time for the 7 mid-table clubs to reorganize through this break. As a commanding tower, there is room to calmly review the first half and establish strategies for the second half. If you set your mind to it, you can predict the matchup of starting pitchers in July and August, and you have time to roughly plan the lineup accordingly. It also has the effect of earning a little recovery time for the injured.
Looking back on the first half, there were many consecutive wins and losses for these 7 teams. This means that the strength of the pillars of each part is not completely stable, and it is somewhat affected by the atmosphere. If the manager’s preparation and injury variables are added to the Asian Games at the end of September, there is a good chance that this composition will change drastically.
KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “I think the current mid-level game will go until the end of September. Like last year, he sees that the fight for the top 5 will be fierce until the end and tries to prepare. We need to prepare well for the Asian Games variables,” he said. The main members of Team 7 will also leave during the Asian Games. With the power of Plan B, a fall baseball bracket could be created.
