Last year, the KBO League was dominated by 먹튀검증 SSG Landers. For the first time in the history of the KBO League, SSG Landers won the ‘Wire-to-Wire’, which did not lose first place for a single day from the opening day of the regular season to the last day. In the Korean Series, they defeated the Kiwoom Heroes, who had been strong until the playoffs, with a record of 4 wins and 2 losses, and succeeded in winning the combined championship. After two seasons from the acquisition as SK Wyverns, SSG picked up its first championship trophy.
It is difficult to say whether this year’s SSG will maintain its strong performance like last year. Despite the large-scale transfer of free agents last winter, SSG did not have any significant reinforcements. The catcher and bullpen, which are weak points, have not been supplemented, and the team’s main pillars, veteran players, are one year older, so there are concerns about the ‘aging curve’. Regardless of the performance of the three foreign players who have all been changed, the lid must be opened. It is expected that Kiwoom and LG Twins, which have solid power, will make a strong challenge to SSG.
In order for SSG to achieve its second consecutive victory, the revival of second baseman Choi Joo-hwan is desperately needed. After the end of the 2020 season, Choi Joo-hwan obtained FA qualification for the first time and transferred to SK for a total of 4.2 billion won over 4 years.
