3 out of 7 members of ‘Rabbit’ remain… NC’s offseason is ‘half success’

There are 7 FA rabbits. NC Dinos’ offseason, which had a lot of worries, has come to an end. It’s not the best result, but it’s not a total failure, it’s a ‘half success’.

On the 27th, NC announced that it had signed a contract with FA outfielder Kwon Hee-dong for a total of up to 125 million won, including an annual salary of 90 million won and an option of 35 million won for one year.

As a result, the destinations of all 7 people who applied for free agency as part of NC have been decided. Three people remained, including Park Min-woo, Lee Jae-hak, and Kwon Hee-dong, and four members, Yang Eui-ji (Doosan), Noh Jin-hyuk (Lotte), Won Jong-hyeon (Kiwoom), and Lee Myung-gi (Hanwha), were sent to other teams.

Since the salary cap (upper limit on team annual salary) was introduced from this season, it was impossible for NC to catch all 7 free agents in the first place. It required selection and concentration.

In that respect, ‘Plan A’ returned to failure. NC set the retention of catcher Yang Eui-ji, the largest fish in the FA market, as ‘rank 0’, but was lost to Doosan, who bet the highest ever amount of 15.2 billion won in 4+2.

In addition, as infielder Noh Jin-hyuk with long hitting power was given to Lotte for 4 years and 5 billion won, and veteran bullpen pitcher Won Jong-hyun was transferred to Kiwoom for 2.5 billion won in 4 years, the atmosphere inside NC reached its worst.

This is because the power that won the first championship in 2020 was weakened in an instant.

However, NC quickly took action. NC ‘one-club man’ Park Min-woo was captured for 14 billion won in 5+3 years to appease NC fans, and the catcher position that Yang Eui-ji was missing was filled with the recruitment of another free agent catcher Park Se-hyuk (4 years, 4.6 billion won). In the case of Park Se-hyeok, it was pointed out that it was ‘overpay’, but it was an unavoidable decision for NC, who missed Yang Eui-ji. 바카라사이트

NC, which has overcome a major hurdle, calmly proceeded with contracts with quasi-class free agents such as Lee Jae-hak, Lee Myung-gi, and Kwon Hee-dong.

Pitcher Lee Jae-hak, who can be both a starter and a midfielder, was retained relatively inexpensively at 900 million won for 2+1 years. It was not a bad contract for NC because the interest of other teams was low due to the recent sluggishness.

In the case of outfielders Lee Myung-gi and Kwon Hee-dong, NC initially had no intention to sign a contract, but set the negotiation table again as they were put in a crisis of ‘missing FA’. In the end, Lee Myung-gi sent it to Hanwha in a sign-and-trade manner, and Kwon Hee-dong left it at a ‘cheap’ price of less than 100 million won in guarantee.
