59.1%··Stubbornness and conviction, where is director Yeom Gyeong-yeop?

On the 2nd, the LG Twins’ team stealing success rate of 60% collapsed. Before the game, he narrowly crossed the 60% mark with 60.9%, but both attempted steals were caught in the game against the Changwon NC Dinos. The 3-day stealing success rate was the lowest, 10.4 percentage points (p) lower than the league average (69.5%). Attempts to steal (66 times) and successes (39 times) are the first, but even failures (27 times) are overwhelming. It is a dishonorable ‘everything’ face.

LG’s ‘running baseball’ was announced early. In the exhibition game, he attempted to steal 50 times. It was about three times more than KT Wiz (17 times), which came second in this category. Averaged 3.57 per game. The stealing success rate was 64%. It was the 토토사이트 time before the opening, so I could buy my body, but it was the opposite. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, “(If we run, the opposing team) should prepare,” he said. At the same time, he emphasized, “We have a green light for all players (who can steal autonomously).”

In baseball, the break-even point for stolen bases is seen as a success rate of 70-75%. In case of failure, the expected score drops significantly, so it is difficult to try blindly. As sabermetrics expert Bill James argues, “Don’t try to steal a base if your success rate is less than 70 percent.” 

On the other hand, director Yeom Kyung-yeop’s standard is slightly lower. Director Yeom says, “Even if only 65% ​​come out, it is a success” considering the damage done to the opponent, the help given to the batter, and the pressure given to the defense. Until the 20th of last month, LG had a successful base stealing rate of 64.7%. Even if it was lower than the league average, LG was able to show a signal that it was moving as planned. But recently, failures have accumulated rapidly. From April 25 to 3, the success rate of stealing in 8 games was only 45.5%. The red light came on.

At the beginning of the season, LG’s ‘running baseball’ worked. There were also not a few scenes of stealing a chance and putting pressure on the opponent’s battery. However, the strategy was exposed too much during the game. The sharpness of stabbing opponents has become dull. Now, the team facing LG throws dozens of check balls during the game. Because of that, LG’s game time is the longest in the league. In the month of April, LG ranked first with an average time per game of 3 hours and 23 minutes (3 hours and 12 minutes on average) based on 9 innings, and 3 hours and 28 minutes (3 hours and 18 minutes) including overtime.

As checks were concentrated, stealing failures and checks piled up. Criticism from fans watching this has also increased. As the Maginot Line of 65% set by the coach is broken, the efficiency of the strategy is bound to rise to the cutting board. Both the team and the coach are burdened.

If so, should I change my strategy? Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, ahead of the NC game on the 2nd, the first game in May, “Isn’t it fun in its own way (to come up with various opinions related to stealing)? There are pros and cons to the article, and I think this is baseball.” When I hear (opposition), I think about it, and other teams can think about doing this. I think that baseball is not about winning and losing, but there should be a lot of stories in it. In recent years, when I’ve watched baseball outside, I’ve seen such stories too. there wasn’t,” he said. It was a kind of ‘frontal breakthrough’ notice.

In the game held just a few minutes later, LG players repeated failure to steal and check. We won 5-3, but we couldn’t help but laugh. Former LG coach Ryu Ji-hyun, who relayed this game, said, “The process of winning is too bad.”
