Why did the Doosan Bears, who succeeded in returning to the postseason after two years, bow their heads to their fans?
On the 20th, the Doosan Bears team said on its official SNS, “Thank you. “We fell short,” he said, expressing both gratitude and apology to Bears fans.
Doosan, which suffered the humiliation of finishing 9th for the first time since its founding last year, finished 5th with 74 wins, 2 draws, 68 losses, and received an invitation to the postseason for the first time in two years. The team had a better Stove League season than any other club, including the appointment of coach Lee Seung-yeop, the ‘national hitter’, and the return of free agent Yang Eui-ji and Raul Alcantara, and succeeded in overcoming the shock of finishing 9th in just one year.
Nevertheless, Coach Lee Seung-yeop blamed himself when concluding the season. Director Lee said, “There are many things I have regretted while doing so far. Because it was only my first year, there were some inexperiences. I think I am in this ranking because I was lacking in both the players’ integration and the process of solving the game. “I think if I had been smarter, I would have ranked higher than I am now,” he said regretfully.
Doosan achieved its initial goal of 5th place, but fell to 5th place while fighting for a tie for 3rd place, and the joy of advancing to the fall baseball season was halved. Rather than the joy of jumping from the bottom rank to 5th place last year, there was a lot of regret that it would have been possible to rank even higher than now. The vicious cycle of failing to stabilize power continued, with 11 consecutive wins and 7 consecutive wins, but then immediately falling into a long losing streak and forgetting about victory, and due to the failure to find new faces, the regular season games were run like a short-term match in which only the best players were used. .
The much-anticipated fall baseball season also ended in vain after just one game. They lost 9-14 in the first game of the wild card match against NC held at Changwon NC Park on the 19th, ending the season without a semi-playoff. They took a 3-0 lead in the early going with starter Kwak Bin’s good pitching and scoring in every inning from the first to the third, but suffered a painful comeback loss after giving up two big innings, including 5 runs in the 4th inning and 6 runs in the 8th. 토토사이트Inexperienced pitcher replacement and physical overload of the bullpen, which had played 8 consecutive games at the end of the season, were cited as reasons for the loss.
Doosan said through social media, “Despite the consistent support and encouragement for a year, contrary to the expectations of fans, we were unable to rise to a higher level. “It’s because of our shortcomings,” he blamed himself, and promised to take a leap forward by saying, “However, based on this year’s experience, I will definitely show Miracle Doosan’s potential next year.”
He continued, “Once again, I bow my head in apology and express my gratitude to Doosan fans. sorry. “And I am truly grateful for the entire year,” he added.
Coach Lee said after the first game of the wild card game the previous day, “This is how the year ended. It passed quickly. Thanks to our players, we were able to play fall baseball. “I came this far with the goal of playing fall baseball while preparing, and although I was initially successful, I am very disappointed that it ended after just one game,” he said. “There were a lot of fun things as well.” We won a lot thanks to the players. I also played fall baseball and had a winning percentage of over .500. Even if it’s just a little bit, I gained confidence that I can go higher next year. “I had some shortcomings, but I will make up for them in the off-season and go to a higher place,” he said, dreaming of Doosan’s leap forward in the 2024 season.
