The last member of the SF dynasty who ended up having a meal with Ryu Hyun-jin, what is the story of almost going to the rival Dodgers?
Brandon Belt (35), who led the dynasty of the San Francisco Giants, solved the incident that almost signed a contract with the rival LA Dodgers.
NBC Sports Bay Area, an American media, introduced the happening of the belt, saying, “If there is anything worse than parting ways with the last player who won the World Series in San Francisco in 2012 and 2014, that player will sign with the rival Dodgers.”
Belt is a heavy hitter with a batting average of .261 (1146 hits in 4390 bats), 175 homers, 584 RBIs, and an OPS of .814 in 1310 major league games. He made his major league debut in 2011 and played only in San Francisco until last season, leading San Francisco to World Series victories in 2012 and 2014.
However, Belt, who became a free agent after the end of last season, failed to renew the contract with San Francisco and signed a one-year contract with Toronto for $9.3 million (approximately 11.5 billion won). Because of this, he left San Francisco, where he played for 12 years, and moved the team for the first time.
NBC Sports Bay Area reported, “Belt explained that after a long and confusing free agency process, the orange and black (San Francisco color) went to the brink of being changed to Dodger Blue (Dodgers symbol).”
“Honestly, 온라인바카라 I’m really close to signing with the Dodgers,” Belt said on the KNBR program. There was a moment of silence in the room, and Belt said, “I’m kidding. I would never have gone to the Dodgers,” he laughed.
Belt, who recorded a batting average of .203 (54 hits in 254 at-bats), 8 homers, 23 RBIs and OPS .676 in 78 games last season, had difficulty finding a new team. “I had to decide between the last three or four teams,” he said. He was really excited to be playing for Toronto on the final day. There are many reasons, but the biggest reason is that Toronto has a good roster. We will go to the World Series this year,” he said, expressing his desire to win again.
NBC Sports Bay Area said, “San Francisco fans will now be able to cheer on Belt and reminisce. But really, if he had signed with the Dodgers, the story would have been different.”
