“The leader gulps down a bowl of budae stew… ” SF’s passionate love for KBO’s biggest star, will it really bring in $100 million?

To the extent that Director Putilla pushed a bowl of budae stew… “

It is true that the San Francisco Giants are the most active in recruiting Lee Jeong-hoo (25, free agent). The reporter covered the Arizona spring camp of KBO teams and the WBC national team for about three weeks in February. At the time, San Francisco took turns observing Lee Jeong-hoo among its employees. Every time he visited Kiwoom Camp, San Francisco officials always hung around Lee Jeong-hoo. He even followed the national team training and practice games to check on Lee Jeong-hoo.메이저사이트

Meanwhile, officials were dispatched to the Gwangju KIA three-game series at the end of June. A visit to Gocheok Sky Dome is not news, but officials were dispatched to the local stadium. He even attracted a lot of attention as he was known to be a high-ranking official. From then on, I felt that San Francisco’s love for Lee Jeong-hoo was not normal.

The final blow was general manager Pete Putilla. Director Putilla personally visited Seoul and checked on Lee Jeong-hoo. I was in the stands at Gocheok Sky Dome during Lee Jung-hoo’s surprise comeback and farewell match. You may have been most curious about your condition after ankle extensor surgery and rehabilitation.

Recently, there are reports that the San Diego Padres and New York Yankees are also interested in Lee Jung-hoo. However, there is no indication that these teams’ level of interest in Lee Jeong-hoo is as high as in San Francisco. In this situation, The Athletic once again reported San Francisco’s sincerity toward Lee Jung-hoo on the 14th (Korean time).

The Athletic reported that General Manager Putilla personally watched Lee Jung-hoo’s farewell game. In the related video, you can also briefly see Director Putilla standing up and applauding. They even kindly introduced when they appear in the 51-second video. My Daily’s photo department also succeeded in capturing Director Putilla. 

The Athletic said, “Lee Jung-hoo is a hitter with a career average of 0.340 who won the 2022 KBO MVP and five Golden Glove Awards. He was the best player on the WBC Korean team. He is the son of Lee Jong-beom, a top player in the 1990s who was fast enough to be nicknamed the Son of the Wind. “Lee Jeong-hoo’s nickname is the grandson of the wind.”

The Athletic continued, “Scouting Korean players is considered tricky, but the Giants’ evaluation is strong enough for Putilla to shove a bowl of budae stew. “The rest of the front office is interviewing potential directors.”

It is unknown whether Director Putilla actually ate Budae Jjigae in Seoul, but it is interpreted that he ate Budae Jjigae and that it was worth watching while staying in Seoul. The general manager went all-in on scouting Jeong-hoo Lee and even added that the rest of the staff was in the process of selecting a manager. This clearly shows how much interest San Francisco has in Lee Jeong-hoo.

Of interest is also the amount. I wonder if San Francisco will be able to raise up to $100 million for Lee Jung-hoo, who will be in a recruitment war. No Korean player in history has ever signed a $100 million contract when first entering the Major League. Lee Jeong-hoo is talented, but his weapon is that he completed his military service and is 25 years old.
