Boston fans’ ‘love call’ to Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) is persistent.
Fanside argued on the 11th (Korean time), “Ha-seong Kim is a consumable for San Diego, but it can be a good asset for Boston.”
Fanside also said, “Over the past few months, it has become clear that Ha-sung Kim is not the future of San Diego.”
Fanside said, “San Diego can have a solid infield with Xander Bogarts signing a ‘monster’ contract this offseason and Fernando Tatis Jr. returning at the beginning of the season.” If recruited, he could contribute significantly to Boston’s interests along with Story’s rise.”
Kim Ha-seong spent his first full-time season last season. 251/.325/.383, he performed relatively well, hitting 43 extra-base hits, 59 RBIs, 58 runs scored, and stealing 12 bases.
More importantly, he posted impressive 2.2 dWAR and 4.3 dWAR over two years.
Fansidid’s point seems reasonable.
This offseason, San Diego signed players who needed to strengthen their strength without paying attention to Kim Ha-seong. Even though Fernando Tatis Jr. is returning, Bogatz and veteran Matt Carpenter have been recruited. Ha-seong Kim said that he would play a lot as a second baseman, but he said that he would listen to Ha-sung Kim’s trade offer. If it helps to reinforce pitchers, Ha-seong Kim will be used as a trade card.
Boston is in a position to find replacements for them by any means as the shortstop and second baseman are suddenly missing.
