“General manager is obsessed with Otani”…PS raiding LAD goes all-in on superstar signing

Could the Los Angeles Dodgers land Shohei Ohtani?

According to, the official website of Major League Baseball, the Dodgers will be the next team to sign Ohtani when he hits the free agent market on Aug. 8. General manager Andrew Friedman is reportedly “obsessed” with Ohtani. “The Dodgers will reportedly pull out all the stops to sign Ohtani,” the outlet said. Some insiders believe the Dodgers are the favorite,” and predicted that Ohtani will be wearing blue next year.

Ohtani is the most sought-after free agent resource in this year’s Stovrig. And for good reason. He’s a two-way starter and a complete player. This season, Ohtani appeared in 23 games as a pitcher, going 10-5 with a 3.14 ERA in 132 innings. As a hitter, he hit .304 with 44 home runs, 95 RBI, 102 runs scored, a .412 on-base percentage, a .654 slugging percentage, and a 1.066 OPS in 135 games. Adding Ohtani would be a great way to bolster both the mound and the batting order.

However, injuries are a concern. Ohtani has an elbow injury. He underwent surgery and will need to rehabilitate, so he’ll only be able to play as a hitter in 2024. It”ll be a while before he can take the mound again as a pitcher. Locals believe that Ohtani won”t be able to throw a ball again until 2025. Even if he can’t do both, Ohtani is still the most attractive player on the free agent market.

There was talk early on that the Dodgers would be in the mix for Ohtani. It was expected that the Dodgers, who are looking to challenge for a pennant, would be eager to add talent this winter. The Dodgers suffered a humiliating loss in the postseason this year. After entering the postseason with a 100-62 record and a .617 winning percentage, the Dodgers were swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks (84-78, .519), who finished fall baseball as the second best team in the West and the third wild card. Without a bolstered lineup, they won’t be able to make a run next year.

Ohtani’s asking price is expected to be more than $500 million. “Ohtani is the biggest free agent to dominate this offseason. He has made history in the major leagues so far. The superstar has 스포츠토토 done things that no one else has done. We’ve never seen anyone like him,” and predicted that Ohtani will receive the best deal in Major League Baseball history.

The Dodgers, New York Mets, and San Francisco Giants are among the teams in the running for Ohtani. The Mets, as always, have their eyes on free agency’s biggest names. San Francisco is considering signing Ohtani as a parting gift for manager Bob Melvin. It will be interesting to see which uniform Ohtani will wear.

Park Hyo-jun leaves Atlanta’s Triple-A team, becomes a free agent, faces decision to stay in U.S. or return home

Hyo-Jun Park, 27, a former player for the Atlanta Braves Triple-A team in Major League Baseball (MLB), has become a free agent.

Atlanta’s Triple-A team, the Gwinnett Strikers, announced at 6 a.m. local time that Park has been released from the team and will become a free agent. The team decided that it could not afford to keep Park on the 40-man roster this year and next, so he left without a major league contract.

As a result, Park is now free to sign with any team in Korea or abroad. However, because he went straight to the U.S. after high school, he must serve a two-year grace period before returning to the KBO. He hasn’t resolved his military issues yet, so if he returns to South Korea, he’ll have to do his military service first.

It is unclear if Park will remain in the United States. In 101 games and 389 at-bats at Triple-A this season, Park hit .262 with six home runs, 42 RBIs, 16 doubles, and an OPS of 0.764. It’s not a bad record, but it does seem a bit lackluster for a big league contract.

Even last offseason, he was designated for assignment (DFA) by his original team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, then traded to the Boston Red Sox, only to be DFA’d again, traded to his current team, Atlanta, and then DFA’d, leaving him without major league status and playing all season in the minors. He needed to dominate in Triple-A to earn a big league call-up, but unfortunately, he wasn’t quite there.

However, Park has the versatility to play a variety of positions. This season, he’s played the most games in right field (53) due to team needs, but he’s also played second and third base, his natural position.

He has also played every position in the major leagues up until last year, including second base, third base, shortstop, left field, center field, and right field, except first base 토토 and catcher. If a team is in need of a utility player, they might reach out to Park.

Turning 28 next year, the time is coming for Park to make a choice, whether to pursue one more big league challenge or return to Korea.

‘Oil Money’ Takes Over Global Sports Market Amidst War

Middle Eastern oil producers are using their ‘oil money’ to take over the global sports market.

The Washington Post (WP) highlighted the emergence of Middle Eastern oil producers as “big players” in the global sports market in a feature story titled “THE NEW KINGS OF SPORTS” on Sunday.

The “fight of the century” between professional boxing WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and mixed martial arts star Francis N’Ghanu took place not in Las Vegas, USA, but in a ring in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on March 29. The boxing promoters who organized the fight partnered with Saudi Arabia.

“They’re dominating the game, and in five, 10 years, they’re going to be a major player in all sports,” Pew said, predicting that “all the big sporting events are going to be in Saudi Arabia.”

The National Basketball Association (NBA), looking for a location for a preseason game, has partnered with the UAE, and Monumental Sports, an American company that owns seven sports franchises, has found new deep-pocketed investors in Qatar.

“The influx of money from the Middle East is reshaping the global sports power structure,” WP said, but it’s also sparking controversy over where the money is coming from.

He pointed to a number of controversies that have emerged in the Middle East around human rights issues for women, laborers, and LGBT people. Some have criticized the Middle Eastern countries’ investments as “sportswashing,” using sports to erase accusations of human rights abuses.

In the case of Saudi Arabia, there have been allegations of links to events that have hit the United States, such as the September 11, 2001 attacks and the assassination of WP dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Despite the controversy, “it’s becoming harder for (major sports) leagues, teams and athletes to say no to money from (Middle Eastern countries),” WP said, adding that the result is a global realignment of sports resources and influence, a trend that is likely to accelerate.

“We are starting to see the intersection of geography, politics and economics shaping sport,” said Simon Chadwick, a professor at Skema Business School in France, adding that countries are using sport to establish identity, build power and influence.

WP noted that Middle Eastern countries have continued to invest in sports despite the turmoil in the region following the war that began with a surprise attack on Israel by the Palestinian militant group Hamas on July 7.

Middle Eastern countries have acquired top European soccer clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain (Qatar), Manchester City (UAE), and Newcastle United (Saudi Arabia), and Middle Eastern companies such as Saudi state energy company Aramco (Formula One), Qatar Airways (NBA), and Emirates (US Open) have poured money into the US sports market.

Especially after Qatar hosted the World Cup, Middle Eastern countries are eager to host big sporting events. Saudi Arabia has been tipped to host the 2034 World Cup, and there have been reports that Qatar will bid for the Summer Olympics.

WP noted that it is not uncommon for a country to use sports to showcase its status on the world stage, noting that Europe and North America have dominated world sports for decades.

The 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, laid the groundwork for the growth of sports in Asia, reintroducing South Korea to the West and spurring China’s Olympic bid, WP noted.

Chadwick called this period “Sport 2.0,” saying that “globalization and free trade opened up (new doors for sport) around the world.

The next phase, he said, was “Sport 3.0,” when more Arab countries 카지노사이트 began to take an interest in sport, with the digital media boom and countries using sport as a means to achieve broader policy goals.

As sports budgets have been slashed around the world, including in Europe, traditional host nations have been unable to afford big-ticket sporting events such as the Olympics, and more well-funded Middle Eastern countries have turned to the sports market.

“In sports terms, we’re not even in the middle of the first quarter,” sports consultant Mark Ganis told WP, calling it “a megatrend that will grow for the next decade or more.”

How Jingdong became a powerhouse again

Jingdong Gaming defeated the LPL Summer Season last year. However, their performance at the LPL Rold Cup as the number one seed was not as impressive as expected, and they ended up losing to T1 in the quarterfinals, 1-3. After adding to their roster and revising their strategy, Jingdong Gaming is now a formidable foe and will once again take on T1.

The biggest reason for Jingdong’s rise to power is recruitment. In the 2022 quarterfinals against T1, Jingdong Gaming’s lack of carry power in the mid lane was noticeable, while Wang “Hope” Wang and Liu “Missing” Wenfeng in the bottom lane were outclassed. After the season, they successfully rebuilt by signing Zhu “Knight” Ding and Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk. Unlike Yagao, Knight is a mid laner who relies on a strong laning game to generate carries, and he had already proven himself by winning the regular season MVP before joining Jingdong. Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk is one of the strongest bottom laners in the game, combining strong laning and late game carry.

Collecting the best players doesn’t necessarily make a good team, but Jingdong Gaming head coach Yoon “Homme” Seong-young also excels at organizing traffic and distributing roles among players. By giving Bai “369” Jiahao a tank champion who can play solo at the top, he concentrated his team’s resources on high-carry mids and ranged dealers. In fact, the most played champions by ‘369’ so far this year have been Orin, Xanthe and Renekton.

Jingdong Gaming has also excelled at reading the meta and adapting to it. Basically, this is because their mid laners and ranged dealers play most champions well. The time I felt this most acutely was at MSI. In MSI, Jing-dong executed the high-value, one-hit-centered compositions that were the meta at the time better than anyone else. Jae-hyuk Park’s Jinx and Knight’s Annie were some of the most skillful picks in the meta at the time. Seo “Canavi” Jin-hyuk was also able to handle the likes of Goku, a growth jungler, and Sejuani, a tanky jungler, while also being flexible enough to change colors depending on the meta. Overall, Jingdong Gaming is a team that leans towards the bottom lane, but is also flexible with their picks depending on the meta.

With this ability, Jingdong Gaming lifted the MSI along with two LPL titles, leaving them just one step away from the first ever “Grand Slam” in LOL esports. At Worlds, the team went 3-0 in the Swiss stage with wins over BDS, BLG and LNG to reach the knockout stage. They followed that up with a 3-1 win over KT in the quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals.

Nevertheless, Jingdong Gaming is not a team without its weaknesses, especially during the Rold Cup, where their upper lane sole liners ‘Knight’ and ‘369’ were repeatedly exposed for their less 토토사이트 than stellar laning form. Even in their actual match against KT Rolster, Kwak “Biddy” Bo-sung was able to create a good flow in the game, taking the initiative in most sets against “Knight”. Considering that Jingdong Gaming’s game plan is heavily centered on the mid and bottom lanes, the form of ‘Knight’ in the mid lane is definitely a factor.

Jingdong Gaming’s ability to be a powerhouse is due to their ability to recruit quality players, set up tactics to suit their players, and adapt to the meta. They’ve maintained their strong form in the Rold Cup, but at the same time, they’re not an outright unstoppable force.

Longest winning streak’ Woori Card is the center of the men’s storm.

Seven men’s teams received their first-round report cards after Korean Air’s match against OK Financial Group on Sunday.

Samsung Fire was at the top of the list, followed by Woori Card. Both teams finished with a 5-1 record and tied for 14 points, but were evenly matched in set point percentage, with Samsung Fire posting a 3.200 to Woori Card’s 2.500.

Both Samsung Fire and Woori Card have been disappointed with their first-round rankings in the last three seasons, but this season they have turned the tables on the men’s side and are leading the way.

Samsung Fire dreams of rebuilding its franchise. After being ranked sixth in the 20-21 season, fifth in the 21-22 season, and seventh in the 22-23 season as of the first round, the Samsung Fireballs are now ranked first in the new season.

In the team rankings by division at the end of the first round, Samsung Fire ranked second in total offense among the seven clubs with an offensive success rate of 54.17%. The team is also ranked second in back-row attacks (59.65% success rate) and open attacks (46.54%), showing that they are a much different team than they used to be, boasting an average of 13.48 set wins per set, good for third in the category.

First, the team’s ace, Cuban outside hitter Yosvani, led the team in scoring with 161 points during the first round, while also ranking first in open attack with a 56.18% success rate. He is also the team’s main gun, ranking third overall in attack with a 55.81% success rate and fourth in service with 0.33 service points per set.

Outside hitters Kim Jung-ho and Park Sung-jin, who form a trio with Yosubani, are also contributing. Kim is tied for first in the conference with a 100 percent success rate on timed attacks, while second-year pro Park Sung-jin is second in the conference with a 67.5 percent success rate on behind-the-back attacks. Middle blocker Kim Jun-woo also anchors the middle with 0.48 blocks per set.

Meanwhile, in the non-scoring categories, libero Lee Sang-wook is solidly anchoring the back row, ranking second in the category with 5.62 defensive successes per set, while setter Noh Jae-wook, the team’s captain, allows the attackers to attack to their heart’s content with his savvy game management.

Despite finishing second to Samsung Fire in set losses, the Woori Card also ended their hot start to the season. After finishing fifth in the first round in each of the last three seasons (20-21, 21-22, and 22-23), the team rebounded this year. In particular, their five-game winning streak after the start of the league was the longest opening streak in the franchise’s history.

The Woori Card leads the team standings in every scoring and non-scoring category at the end of the first round. They rank first in service aces per set (1.1), second in blocks per set (2.57), and third in both scoring and offense with 507 points and a 52.21% offensive success rate. They are also third in quick offense (56.43% success rate) and trailing offense (57.34% success rate). In the non-scoring categories, they are first in reception (47.85% reception efficiency), digs (11.14 per set), and defense (20.14 per set), second in sets (13.81 per set), and second in errors (114) among the seven teams.

Woori Card also has a balanced lineup of players 메이저토토사이트 across positions. Outside hitter Apojit Matei has been the team’s mainstay, averaging 0.43 digs per set and ranking fourth in scoring with 149 points on a 53.17% attack percentage (4th).

Outside hitter Kim Ji-han adds to the team’s versatility in various scoring categories, while middle blocker Park Jin-woo is a solid wall for Woori Card with 0.57 blocks per set (5th).

In the non-scoring categories, second-year pro field commander Han Tae-joon leads the way with 12.76 set wins per set, beating out a number of senior setters, while veteran libero Oh Jae-sung anchors Woori Card’s defense with 3.53 digs per set (1st).
