Will this time be different?토토사이트
SBS Sports commentator Kim Tae-hyung stepped down as manager of the Doosan Bears last year. The club did not re-sign him after his contract expired. There were already rumours of his departure during the season. However, there were also speculations that he would be paid handsomely and take the helm of another team.
The LG Twins, NC Dinos, and Samsung Lions had their managers step down or have their contracts terminated during the season. Hanwha Eagles manager Carlos Subero and Lotte Giants manager Larry Sutton also faced possible replacements due to poor performance. It was expected that one of these teams would give Kim Tae-hyung a call.
In a way, it was a natural prospect. Doosan won the Korean Series in 2015 when he took over as manager, and he had an impeccable track record of reaching the Korean Series for seven consecutive seasons until the 2021 season. He won the championship three times, so it’s no exaggeration to say that he’s a master among masters. He’s the kind of manager you want to hire if you want to get results.
This was the case when Kim Eung-yong, who won nine Korean Series titles with Stavrig in 2000, left Haetae for Samsung. His charisma and control over his players, his ability to read the pulse of the game as a catcher, and his mercenary skills, such as making bold decisions in game-winning situations, were flawless.

Surprisingly, however, there was no call for Kim Tae-hyung. Lotte and Hanwha are determined to fulfil their contracts. NC and Samsung signed Kang In-hwa and Park Jin-man, who had been acting managers, respectively. LG debated re-signing Ryu Ji-hyun, but opted for a replacement, handing the reins to Yeom Kyung-yup.
Returning to the field, Kim Tae-hyung signed a commentary contract with SBS Sports. He received good reviews for his commentary, which incorporates his rich field experience. He recently came under fire for making an unflattering remark about a player without realising he was ‘on air’, but the party in question said he was “like a father figure”, and he has since moved on.
As the 2023 season enters its second half, the top five is starting to take shape. LG is in dominant mode, sitting atop the standings with a six-game lead. SSG is a precarious second with three games in hand. KT is on an upward curve with its starting baseball. NC is also chasing KT by two games. Doosan is one game behind NC, but is being chased by KIA with 1.5 games in hand.

The battle for second place and the battle for third to fifth place is heating up. With nearly two months to go until the end of the season, Kim Tae-hyung is already attracting attention. He is being talked about as a candidate to take over from the underperforming teams. With such a strong track record as a coach, it’s only natural that interest would be focused on him.
In fact, Kim Tae-hyung was even mentioned as a possible candidate when Hanwha sacked Subero midway through the season. While the deal didn’t go through, it’s likely that he’ll be at the top of several teams’ wish lists when the season ends. After a year as a commentator, he is likely to have refined his baseball philosophy. Kim Tae-hyung’s future is already a hot topic.
