Julio Rodriguez (23, Seattle Mariners), who is called the future MVP, explained why he did not express his feelings despite achieving his first 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases.
MLB.com, the official Major League Baseball website, mentioned on the 13th (Korean time) why Rodriguez did not express his thoughts on 30-30 the previous day.
According to him, Rodriguez said, “I couldn’t talk about good things (to myself) when my team wasn’t doing well.”
Seattle lost 6-8 in the game against the LA Angels on the 12th after 11 extra innings. They gave up the game despite Rodriguez’s 30th home run of the season in the 10th overtime. Last 4 consecutive losses.
In particular, Seattle is currently engaged in a fierce battle for the lead in the American League West Division, so winning each game is very important.
Although Rodriguez joined the 30-30 club for the first time in this match, he refrained from commenting on it as his team lost. Showing a maturity that is unusual for a 23-year-old.
Afterwards, Seattle won 8-0 in a game against the LA Angels on the 13th with a combination of two hits, breaking their 4th consecutive loss. As the team escaped its losing streak, Rodriguez announced his position.온라인카지노
In addition, Rodriguez contributed greatly to the team’s victory by going 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 RBI, and 1 run in the game on the 13th. Seattle is currently in third place, 1.5 games behind the district leader Houston Astros.
Rodriguez, in his second year in the major leagues, recorded a batting average of 0.289, 30 home runs, 98 RBIs, 93 runs, 170 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.343 and OPS of 0.848 in 138 games of the season so far.
He received American League Rookie of the Year honors last year and was selected as an All-Star for two consecutive years. This is a performance worthy of being called a future MVP.
