With two weeks left in the summer transfer window, San Diego Padres starter Joe Musgrove shared his thoughts on this.
Musgrove said in an interview after an away game with the Toronto Blue Jays held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 19th (Korean time), “The players here will not think much about it,” and said, said about
San Diego won the game today, but is still in a difficult position with 45-50. It seems that he will worry about the position of ‘seller’ and ‘buyer’ in the transfer market.
In order for the team to not become a ‘seller’, it seems that they need to perform a little better in the remaining matches in July. In this sense, Musgrove gave the answer, “whether we buy or sell, we are a good team” to the question of ‘feel more alert’.
“If we go out as ‘seller’ and trade players like Blake Snell and Josh Hader, we’ll be a different team than before. Even so, we will still be a good team. I’m not too concerned. Now I am trying to win as many games as possible.”
Director Bob Melvin had similar thoughts. He said, “We are a good enough team in any scenario,” and said he was not thinking about the transfer market problem.
On this day, San Diego’s starter Musgrove pitched well with 5 hits, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings, and the batting line exploded, leading the team to a big 9-1 victory.
Musgrove showed a fighting spirit throwing 109 balls despite straining his adductor muscle at the beginning of the game.
“The director tried to be careful. He said after the fifth inning he was fine and could throw more. He also wanted to finish the 6th inning,” he said, saying that he was greedy until the 6th inning.
Having his first appearance in the second half, he said, “I needed a break to keep my arms and everything in good condition. I am in very good shape now. At the beginning of the game, the rhythm or tempo was slightly disturbed, so I tried to find it, and it got better as the game progressed.”
Manager Melvin said, “When a starter makes a quality start (6 or more innings, 3 earned or less), he is responsible for two-thirds of the total innings. That’s a big deal for a starter. It is the job of the selection to give the team the lead,” he praised Musgrove for playing the role of selection.
On this day, the San Diego batting line widened the gap by adding points from the beginning to the end. It was a different look than when he allowed a turnaround after scoring early and then losing his strength.
Melvin said, “We are a team that has the ability to show this. Today, he added points until the end of the game and reached an ending without drama.”먹튀검증
Juan Soto, who recorded a home run and a double that day, said, “You have to be steady. In the past, even after playing a game like today, there was something that I couldn’t do anything in the next game. We have to show the same appearance every day,” he said, adding that he needed to continue the offensive power he showed today.
