Korea ranked 10th in the WBC rankings Humiliation Japan’s official site for the semifinals
Korea Electric Power Corporation ranked only 10th out of 20 countries?
The opening of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) is approaching. Naturally, the goal of the teams participating in the tournament is to win and advance to the semifinals in Miami, USA. However, there are many strong teams, and there are limited seats. You have to prove your qualifications with your skills.
Then, how will the U.S. view South Korea’s power to go to the U.S. The prediction is staggering. Of course, it is because there is no accurate information or knowledge about Korean baseball, but Korea was placed in a lower rank than Canada or Italy.
Journalists Tim Reich and Mike Petriello of the U.S. Major League Baseball’s official site “MLB.com” picked the participating countries “TOP10.” The two put South Korea in No. 10. Considering that Canada is eighth and Italy is ninth, it is a humiliating ranking for Korea.
Reich said of the Korean national team, “Korea has recently faced a moving problem,” pointing out that coach Lee Kang-chul and many of the players struggled to move due to plane failure when they came to Korea from the U.S. and caused a decline in their condition.
Reich went on to say, “Since I encountered the KBO League in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Korea will be one of my favorite teams.” There are some major leaguers, and the most famous are Tommy Edman and Kim Ha-sung. And there is KBO MVP Lee Jung-hoo who is likely to come to the Major League next year, he said, adding, “Korea will be able to pass Group B.” This means that we can see Lee Jung-hoo on the biggest stage,’ he explained.
Rather than an expert analysis, it is about Korea to the extent that anyone who is interested in baseball can know.
The two chose the Dominican Republic as the top, the United States as the second, and Japan as the third. In the case of Tominiki, he praised it as the “best lineup ever.” The batting lineup is overwhelming, including Julio Rodliges, Juan Soto, Manny Machado, Rafael Devers, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
The U.S. is also full of star players such as Trey Turner, Mookie Mets, Mike Trout, Paul Goldschmidt, Pete Alonso and Nolan Arenado, although major players are missing 토토사이트
The analysis of Japan is interesting. Petriello said of Japan, ‘It’s hard to believe, but Japan has the best non-MLB players. American fans may not be familiar with Murakama Munetaka, Sasaki Loki, and Yamamoto Yoshinobu. I agree that Dominica and the United States are superior to Japan, but the gap is not wide. We can tie it up into three great teams,’ he said.
