Most strikeouts in ERA? It’s Kim Ha-Sung’s teammate, and no one else in the history of this mysterious record.

All eyes are on Kim’s San Diego Padres teammate, Blake Snell, to set a first in Major League Baseball history.

Snell is coming off one of the strongest National League (NL) Cy Young Award campaigns ever. As of Aug. 31, he has pitched 149 innings in 27 games with an 11-9 record, 2.60 ERA, 193 strikeouts, 1.26 WHIP, and a .192 batting average.

He leads both leagues in ERA and WHIP. Being first in both categories means he’s hard to hit and hard to score runs against. He’s also second in the NL in strikeouts and tied for eighth in wins.

It’s hard to argue that he’s the best pitcher in the NL.

According to FOX Sports, the NL Cy Young candidates have the lowest odds, with Snell at +110. That means a $100 bet would return $110. The Atlanta Braves’ Spencer Strider is second at +210 and the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Zack Galen is third at +450.

Strider has 236 strikeouts, the most in both leagues combined, but his 3.46 ERA ranks seventh in the NL, while Galen is well behind Snell with a 3.32 ERA. Snell won the AL Cy Young Award in 2018 with the Tampa Bay Rays, going 21-5 with a 1.89 ERA and 221 strikeouts.

However, Snell has one glaring record of dishonor. It’s in the strikeout category. Snell allowed 85 four-pitchers, the most of any major league pitcher. Second place goes to Michael Kopeck of the Chicago White Sox, who gave up 84. In the NL, the Washington Nationals’ Zosiah Gray is second with 71. This means that for the rest of the season, Snell has a very good chance of being the most strikeout pitcher in the entire Major Leagues. 먹튀검증 featured Snell’s first-place ERA and most-strikeout marks in San Diego in its “Team Milestones to Look Forward to This Season” feature today.

“Snell leads both leagues with a 2.60 ERA and is the favorite for the NL Cy Young Award,” wrote, “but there’s an even more remarkable stat that stands out. For pitching so well, Snell also leads the league with 85 strikeouts. If Snell leads the majors in strikeouts and ERA, he’ll be the first pitcher to lead the league in both categories since ERA became an official statistical category in 1913.

“Snell has worked his way out of trouble this year. Most of his outs have come on strikeouts. San Diego manager Bob Melvin said, “That’s Snell. He’s a pitcher you expect to strike out.”

Will awkward ‘No. 3’ Gwangju’s third challenge be different…against leader Ulsan?

Will Ulsan Hyundai’s ‘No. 1 system’ last until the end? Gwangju FC, who jumped to ‘No. 3’ contrary to pre-season expectations, throws down the gauntlet.

The stage is set for the 29th round of the K League 1 on September 3 at the Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium.

Ulsan, which has an overwhelming lead in the standings (61 points), has won both meetings with third-place Gwangju (42 points).

Given the difference in quality between last year’s champions and this year’s promoted Gwangju, it’s not surprising, but it hasn’t been easy. Ulsan won by one goal each, 2-1 at home in April and 1-0 in Gwangju in July.

So there is hope that the third meeting will be different. While Ulsan has faltered a bit since their trip to Gwangju, with three wins, two draws, and three losses, Gwangju is unbeaten (three wins and five draws). This is the opposite of the expectation that Gwangju, with its thin roster, would collapse in the middle of the summer. The team was able to move from seventh to third in the standings at this point.

It’s also interesting to note that Ulsan and Gwangju’s team colors have been in opposite directions lately. Ulsan, the team with the most goals (52), has a Plan B of a salty defense that doesn’t leave much space for the opposition, as well as traditional attacking football.

Gwangju, on the other hand, sticks to attacking football without looking back. While Asani (7 goals) is their top scorer, they’ve established themselves as a difficult team to stop, with multiple players contributing to their goals.

It’s unfortunate that the fixers for both teams will most likely not be available for this matchup.

Gwangju’s Uhm Won-sang, who helped Ulsan win the championship last year, and Gwangju’s newest idol, Uhm Ji-sung. Uhm Won-sang won his first match of the year against Uhm Ji-sung, who was a senior at Gwangju Kumho High School.

Uhm wanted to showcase the confidence he gained in his previous match, when he was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 28th round for his multi-goal performance against Suwon Samsung Electronics, but he was called up to the Olympic soccer team.

Uhm will not be able to play against Ulsan because he is participating in the AFC U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers, which kick off on Sept. 6. According to the Korean Football Association’s rules, the Olympic Asian qualifiers must be called up 10 days before the opening day to commit to the national team. Some clubs had requested to be exempted from the call, but the proximity to the national team’s game date prevented them from doing so. 온라인바카라

‘Messi heir’ No. 10, Pati, Tottenham loan deal surges + Barça in talks…SON and frontline switching

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to sign Ansu Pati before the transfer window closes. He is a resource who can synergize with Son Heung-min by changing positions during the game.

Transfer market pundit Fabrizio Romano posted on his social media account on Tuesday (June 30), “Tottenham are currently in talks with Barcelona about signing Pati. It is a loan deal until the summer of 2024. Barcelona want Tottenham to cover 100% of the weekly wages during the loan period.”

Barcelona source ‘Barça Universal’ also said: “Shortly after the news broke that Pati was willing to leave Barcelona, Tottenham and Chelsea emerged as possible destinations. However, Barcelona don’t want to lose Pati, so if he does leave, it will be on loan. At the moment, Tottenham and Barcelona are in talks.”

Tottenham underperformed last season. Antonio Conte, who took over midway through the 2021-22 season, led the club to the UEFA Champions League (UCL), but failed to build on that momentum last season. Conte was eventually relieved of his duties in March after poor results and controversial comments.

Tottenham then finished the season with an acting manager, who also delivered a disappointing performance. This time, it was no different. They were knocked out early in both the English FA Cup and the EFL Cup, as well as the UCL after a long absence. The team was also unable to compete in the English Premier League (EPL), finishing in eighth place. As a result, they will miss out on all three European competitions this season.

Spurs brought in Postecoglou to shake things up. He joined Celtic in 2021 after coaching in Asia, including Australia and Japan. Postecoglou quickly proved his leadership skills. In his first season, Celtic won the Scottish Premiership and the Scottish League Cup, making it a double.

Last season, he completed the “Domestic Treble” (winning three domestic titles). They won the league, the League Cup, and the FA Cup. Tottenham, who had been searching for a manager, expressed interest and finally got their man. Postecoglou will officially start his job in July. His contract is for four years.

Postecoglou’s arrival was a necessary reorganization of the squad. Some of the players who were used to Conte”s tactics, which were based on the use of a back three, were not suited to Postecoglou”s tactics, as he plays an attacking style of soccer based on a back four.

So there were changes. For starters, Tottenham brought in Dejan Kuluczewski outright from his loan spell, along with Solomon as a flanking option and Maddison, who has been in top form as a second central attacking midfielder. At center back, they brought in Van der Vaart, as well as Guglielmo Vicario as a replacement for Hugo Lloris.

There are also resources for the future. Frontline striker Bellis and center back Phillips are also in Tottenham colors. Harry Kane, the centerpiece of the team, has left for Bayern Munich, and the departure of “captain” Hugo Lloris has been confirmed. Lucas Moura here, Harry winks. 스포츠토토

Lee Jung-hyo’s Kwangju focuses on the next match, not the leaderboard!

It’s the “promotion gust” that has taken the K League 1 by storm. Gwangju FC, led by head coach Lee Jung-hyo (48), is having the best season in the club’s history, finishing third in its first season of promotion (42-11 W, 9 D, 8 L). They are on pace to break the club’s all-time record for most points (48), set in 2016, and also surpass their highest ever ranking (6th in 2020).
With five regular and five split rounds remaining, many are predicting Gwangju to qualify for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) for the first time in its history. However, Lee says he is “focusing on the next game, not the leaderboard.” “There are still 10 games left in the season, not just five,” he said in a recent phone call with Sports Donga.

Gwangju returned to the top flight after a one-year hiatus last season after winning the K League 2 title with the most points (86) in the league’s history, but there were more concerns than excitement. Prior to the start of the season, fellow promotion contenders Daejeon Hana Citizens brought in a number of semi-professional resources, while Gwangju’s depth was small. Despite the signings of Asani (Albania), Thomas (Brazil), and Timo (Netherlands), many pointed out that they didn’t have any stars.

Despite the results, the situation is still not good for Gwangju. Recently, Gwangju Metropolitan City and the club promised to improve the training environment by building a dedicated training center, but it is reportedly still in the review stage. Due to the lack of funds, the club was only able to sign Beka (Georgia) in the summer transfer market to replace Sandro (Brazil), who was banned for driving without a license.

However, Lee does not doubt Gwangju’s bright future. “It’s my mission to make Gwangju a team that players want to come to,” he says, and he’s been able to develop a number of promising players from the club’s youth ranks, 바카라사이트 including Lee Hee-gyun, Uhm Ji-sung, and Jung Ho-yeon. As the team’s results and performances improved, midfielder Lee Soon-min earned his first-ever call-up to the national team led by Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany). “Due to the team’s situation, we need to develop our backup players and strengthen the squad. Our priority is to maintain our form until the start of the split round.”

‘1175 days vs 102 days, I waited anxiously…’ Two alternates washed out by rain…the odds are stacked against them going forward

KT-Samsung’s 13th game of the season, scheduled to take place at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 29th, was ultimately canceled due to pre-game rain.

The field was drenched after heavy rainfall in the morning. The lull in the rain came at around 3 p.m., and the downpour intensified around 4 p.m. Kim, who was scheduled to start the day, appeared in the first base dugout during KT Wiz manager Lee Kang-cheol’s briefing.

He checked the amount of rain outside the dugout and turned around with a slightly disappointed expression. Lee Kang-cheol, the head coach, tried to console him. 안전놀이터

“Min, what can I do? I can’t stop it (the rain) and…. You just have to go out on Sunday (Sept. 3 against Gocheok). You’re an old friend, so you can go out even if it rains.”

He turned away with a thin smile, as if comforted by the coach’s reassurance.

The game was eventually canceled. It was actually a rainout that wasn’t too bad for KT.

A game to be played with a substitute starter who had to withdraw due to a microfracture in his ribs. There’s no guarantee of victory, and depending on the situation, they may have to mobilize their bullpen from the first game of the week.

For Kim, however, the rain was a disappointment.

It had been a whopping 1175 days since his last start against Suwon KIA on June 10, 2020, before joining the mercantile industry. He was washed away by the rain. However, there is some consolation in that he only has to wait five days to get another chance to start. It will be interesting to see the outcome of his first start in 1180 days against Gochuk Kiwoom on June 3.

Choi Ha-neul, Samsung’s longest-serving pitcher, is also in trouble.

He was originally scheduled to start against Suwon KT on the 30th. Buchanan was called up at short notice and was scheduled to start last weekend when his start was postponed due to a sudden back soreness.

The long-awaited first-team call-up and start.

Choi leads the entire Futures League in ERA (2.49). However, his call-up had been delayed because his velocity wasn’t up to par for the first team.

He hasn’t pitched in the big leagues since May 20, when he gave up seven runs on seven hits in 1 1/3 innings at NC.

His return to the mound after 102 days was washed away by the rain. Choi Chae-heung, who was scheduled to start on the 29th, will start against KT on the 30th. Taylor Widener will start on the 31st.

Unlike KT’s Kim, it’s hard to say what the future holds.

Samsung manager Park Jin-man said, “I tried to list him as the most stable player among the Futures League starters. We will have to wait depending on the situation, such as the doubleheader next week.”

Gwangju’s intuitive appeal makes away cheering popular

The fans’ support for Gwangju FC is heating up, and the popularity of the away support bus is soaring as the size of the fan base grows.

On the 29th, Gwangju FC announced that it will remove the application (recruitment) limit and provide snacks (bread, drinks, etc.) to away supporters for the remainder of the season due to the growing popularity of the support bus.

Gwangju has been operating the away support bus for free for the 2023 season for the convenience of fans. Supporters can apply for the bus through the website up to four days before the away game, and it will only be operated when there are at least 20 people (limited to 110 people).

However, a happy problem arose. Recently, as the fan support heated up, the application for the away support bus closed early and DLtEK.

Fans who were unaware of the limit posted on the club’s website and social media channels, saying, “There is still time to apply for the support bus, but the application is closed” and “Please increase the number of applicants”.

In response, the club immediately decided to operate the support bus for all those who applied. The club also decided to provide snacks (bread and drinks) to fans on the support bus for the remaining away games, including the final round. 온라인바카라

Lim Geun-hoon, CEO of Gwangju, said, “Fans who are attracted by the intuitive appeal of the game are taking the initiative to cheer for the team rather than waiting for the next home game (September 24 vs. Jeonbuk Hyundai), which is just over a month away,” adding, “We are realizing the increased enthusiasm and popularity of the fans. We will make every effort to ensure that no safety accidents occur.”

“Ohtani will return to pitch, no doubt about it…” Trust in 564.8 billion won superstar, but ‘farewell time’ looms

“There is no doubt in my mind that he will return to the mound.”

Mike Trout, the owner of Major League Baseball’s largest-ever 12-year, $426.5 million contract, has no doubts about Shohei Ohtani’s (Los Angeles Angels) “Idoru comeback. Trout told FOX Sports on Aug. 28 (KST) that he has no doubts about Idoru’s return.

He also said, “With Ohtani, there is a team called the Los Angeles Angels. He still has to get paid. Even if he doesn’t pitch again, he’s still a player that everybody wants. I believe he will come back from his injury. Ohtani always wants to be a two-hitter.”

Ohtani’s ulnar collateral ligament injury in his elbow has been the biggest story in Major League Baseball lately. Ohtani recently declared himself out for the season as a pitcher and has been playing exclusively as a hitter. According to American media, he will need Tommy John surgery to return to pitching. However, the Angels have not yet announced whether or not he will undergo surgery.

In the meantime, general manager Perry Minasian has taken the blame. Earlier this month, he skipped a rotation due to finger cramps and fatigue, which was clearly a red flag. However, the Angels claimed that they were denied an MRI by Ohtani and his agent earlier in the season and this month. There has been no response from Ohtani or his agent on the matter.

Regardless, it is clear that Ohtani is not going to give up on Idoryu easily. There are also concerns about him undergoing a second Tommy John surgery in 2018. What’s clear is that if he goes under the knife, he won’t be available for the 2024 season, and his value will inevitably drop in the upcoming free agency. There’s been talk of $600-700 million, and even $500 million is a stretch.

This is where Trout’s comments in support of Ohtani come in. But regardless of Otani’s comments, 토토사이트 Trautani’s time was running out. Some analysts believe that Ohtani’s price tag has dropped, increasing his chances of staying with the Angels. However, the general consensus is that Ohtani’s chances of staying with a “no-win” Angels organization are diminishing.

Furthermore, Minasian’s comments on the 27th could be construed as an attempt to deflect or shift blame from the club, regardless of whether they are true or not. I wonder what Ohtani was thinking when he heard Minassian’s comments, and whether he was even more distrustful of the club’s front office. Trout and Ohtani are likely to go down as the most unfortunate duo in Major League Baseball history. The end is near.

‘Stoke-bound’ Bae Jun-ho, Daejeon’s cherished player, says goodbye from the bottom of his heart after Hana Financial Group acquisition → Bae Jun-ho also says “Daejeon No. 1 if I come back”

Early in the morning, the Daejeon Hana Citizen Secretariat gathered at the departure hall. They were busy organizing the departure of Bae Jun-ho (20) to the UK.

Bae Joon-ho boarded a plane to England with all the supporters of Daejeon. After receiving an offer from Stoke City of the English Championship (second division), Bae left the country today after agreeing to a transfer fee of £2 million (approx. KRW 3.3 billion), and will undergo medical tests and other details.

It’s easy to be excited or nervous about a new challenge, but Bae Joon-ho was surrounded by people who gave him stability and courage. In particular, the staff of Daejeon, including Director General Lee Jo-young, sent him a heartfelt farewell. He was familiarized with media interviews so that his determination and ambition could be properly conveyed.

When a player decides to move abroad, his agent usually takes over the work related to departure, and since he doesn’t usually face the media, he has to improvise a bit on the spot. On this day, however, Bae Jun-ho looked relaxed and ready to head to Stoke with the support of Daejeon.

A Daejeon official said, “He is a valuable player for our team,” and he gave his best until the end. Bae Jun-ho is the first player Daejeon has developed and sent overseas since becoming a corporate club after being acquired by Hana Financial Group in 2020. Although he did not come from the youth ranks, he joined the team last year and was actively given playing time to develop his skills.

Bae Joon-ho has also been promising and has developed into a versatile attacking resource who can play on the flanks and in the center. After making a smooth transition to the professional ranks last season, scoring one goal in 10 appearances in the K League 2, Bae has blossomed this season with two goals in 17 games in the K League 1. This earned him a call-up to Team K League last month, where he played against Atletico Madrid and drew praise from coach Diego Simeone.

This is a significant loss for Daejeon, as Bae has a lot of potential and is a big part of the current squad. The K League has already closed the door on the summer transfer market last month, making it difficult to replace Bae immediately, but Daejeon has managed to make it to Europe thanks to the determination of its parent organization and the support of the Daejeon club. 바카라사이트

“The club took care of the transfer process, and I am very grateful to the group,” Bae said before his departure, adding, “I was loved so much that I was able to leave with a good relationship. I will continue to strive for a good relationship.”

It’s a long way off, but it’s a natural part of their relationship that Daejeon is the first thing on their minds when they make the switch to the K League. “If I were to return to Korea, Daejeon would be my first choice,” Bae Jun-ho said without hesitation.

Bae Jun-ho played his farewell game in Daejeon on the 25th against Jeonbuk Hyundai. After the game, he received a rinse from his teammates. The fans of Daejeon showed him a lot of love.

Moon Kim-Dae-Dae & Moon Yoon-Dae-Dae were the heroes in KIA’s 5-2 win over Choi Hyung-Woo, their fourth straight victory → Kim Do-Young doubled and scored twice → Yoon Young-Cheol gave up 4 runs in 1 inning → Moon Dong-Joo gave up 5 runs in 8 innings.

It wasn’t Moon Dong-joo (Hanwha), Kim Do-young or Yoon Young-chul (KIA). Choi Hyung-woo (KIA) was the winner of the match between Moon Kim-dae and Moon Yoon-dae. Kim Do-young and Yoon Young-chul smiled with their team’s fourth straight win.

The KIA Tigers came from behind to win 5-2 at home against the Hanwha Eagles in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League on Sunday at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju. It was their fourth straight win. They improved to 52 wins, 50 losses and two ties. Hanwha has lost six straight. They are still in ninth place with 42 wins, 59 losses, and six ties.

Moon Dong-ju seemed to be smiling in both the Moon-Kim and Moon-Yoon games until the third inning, but three runs in the sixth were all unearned and he took the loss. He gave up five runs on five hits, three walks and two strikeouts in five innings to fall to 8-8 on the season. He has an ERA of 3.62. The team concludes the season on March 2 against LG Electronics in Jamsil.

Yoon Young-chul has shown better stuff than Moon Dong-joo, giving him a leg up in the Rookie of the Year race. However, it was not a dominant performance in absolute terms, but in terms of content: 4 innings, 2 hits (1 HR), 4 walks, 2 runs (1 earned). No-decision with the help of the bats.

Kim Do-young avenged his Game 1 loss in Game 2 against Moon Kim. In Game 1 on the 9th, he went 0-for-2 with a walk and a hit in three at-bats. However, Kim went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, and a walk on the day. He reached base twice against Moon Dong-joo and scored both times.

Hanwha scored first in the top of the first inning when Kim Tae-yeon connected on a 139-kilometer fastball from Yoon Young-chul for a leadoff solo shot to left field. In the top of the fourth, Lee Jin-young singled and Kim Sun-bin reached on a throwing error to put runners on first and third, but Eurhyup’s sacrifice fly to center field ended the threat. 스포츠토토

KIA loaded the bases in the bottom of the fourth on a leadoff single by Park Chan-ho, a walk by Kim Do-young and a sacrifice fly by Choi Hyung-woo. Kim Sun-bin made up for the mistake in the top of the fourth with a two-run double to left field. In the bottom of the sixth, Kim Do-young singled to right and Na Sung-beom singled to right to put runners on first and second with no outs, and Choi Hyung-woo hit the game-winning double to left-center field.

KIA continued to capitalize on the opportunity with a Socrates Brito double to left-center. Pinch-hitter Lee Woo-sung drew an automatic walk to load the bases. Pinch-hitter Kim Tae-gun followed with a sacrifice fly to center field for a valuable insurance run.

KIA activated its bullpen in the fifth inning. Jang Hyun-sik started the game, followed by Lim Ki-young, Lee Jun-young, Jeon Sang-hyun, and finally Jeong Jung-young. Jung earned the save. Hanwha lost all four games (two of which were rained out) this week due to a lack of batting cohesion from the middle of the game.

‘The wait is over’ Man Utd youth GK to Crystal Palace…’HERE WE GO’

Dean Henderson, 26, is leaving Manchester United for good after all.

European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano confirmed the transfer on Sunday (July 27), tweeting “HERE WE GO” with the words “Henderson moves to Crystal Palace. An agreement has been reached and a medical will be completed today. He completes his move from United to Palace.”

“United will receive a package of £20 million, including an add-on. A sell-on clause has also been inserted.”

Henderson came through the United youth ranks and has been with the club since 2011. He has since gone on four loan spells to develop, most notably at Sheffield United. In 2018-19, he helped Sheffield United win promotion with 41 clean sheets in 46 games in the English Championship (second tier) and 21 clean sheets in the English Premier League (EPL), followed by a breakout season in 2019-20 with 33 clean sheets in 36 games (13 clean sheets).

Henderson returned to United ahead of the 2020-21 season with expectations of being the No. 1. However, he was overshadowed by David de Gea, and didn’t get much playing time. He made just 13 appearances in the EPL in 2020-21. The 13 games were a temporary opportunity due to De Gea’s maternity leave. He didn’t play a single game in 2021-22.

Henderson opted for another loan ahead of last season. He joined promotion side Nottingham Forest on loan and played 18 games. However, he suffered a thigh injury midway through the season and was ruled out for the season.

With De Gea’s departure ahead of the 2023-24 season, there was some speculation that Henderson could take over as the first-choice goalkeeper, but he has another contender. United signed Andre Onana from Inter Milan. As a result, Henderson was benched for three consecutive EPL games. 카지노사이트

Two years before his contract expired, he decided to leave. His destination is Palace. Palace are in 10th place with one win, one draw, and one loss in their last three games. The wait was finally over.
