Outsider Discrimination? Not This Time…Fierce Family Feuds, Where’s the Fandom?

April’s MVP was controversial, with NC Dinos Eric Peddie losing the fan vote to Lotte Giants Na Kyun-ahn after a dominant performance.

However, the May MVP is a completely different story. There are no foreign players on the list at all.

This time, it’s a family affair. The LG Twins, who jumped out to a commanding lead, have a number of strong candidates.

The most prominent is LG catcher Park Dong-won. He’s showing off his fearsome long ball power and is on pace to become the catcher’s home run king.

In 23 games in May, he hit a whopping nine home runs. That’s about one home run every 2.5 games. Leads the league in RBI with 25. Nine away from the second-place group (Austin, Roh Si-hwan) with 16 RBIs. Leads the league with a 0.787 on-base percentage and a 1.185 OPS.

The most likely candidate to challenge Park is free agent LG pitcher Im Chan-kyu.

Poisonous. In the month of May, he went 4-0 with a 1.13 ERA in four games. He is tied for first in wins and first in ERA. He quickly established himself as a homegrown ace and led LG’s May surge.

Chance maker Hong Chang-ki is also a powerful hoo-boda. In 23 games in May, Hong led the league in batting average and RBI with 86 hits in 33 at-bats, tied for second in runs scored with 14, and was third in slugging percentage with 4.7.

SSG Landers bullpen duo Noh Kyung-eun and Seo Jin-yong are also challenging for the May MVP.

Noh went 1-0 with eight saves and a 0.61 ERA in 14⅔ innings pitched in 12 games in May. Seo Jin-yong led the team in saves in May as he did in April with eight saves in 11 games and a 1.64 ERA. 18 saves on the season.메이저놀이터

Samsung left-hander Baek Jung-hyun was nominated with a 2-0 record and a 1.73 ERA in four games in May.

Among the outfielders, Kia’s Park Chan-ho is second in batting average and RBIs behind Hong Chang-ki with 84 hits in 21 games (.381). Doosan’s Yang Ji-soo also hit well in 19 games, going 3-for-7 with three home runs, 12 RBIs and a .947 OPS.
