Hello, I'm A's fan in Seoul, South Korea.
me and my friend worry about Oakland's batting.
introduce Dae-ho Lee.
He was born June 21, 1982 in Busan, South Korea.
He bats and throws right-handed
6 feet 3 inch, 230 pounds
I think he'll replace Kouz.
and maybe Jack Cust's right-hand version. (Defense : Lee > Cust)
After this season, Lee gets qualified Free Agent (Oversea)
I want to inform Beane of Lee's information. :)
Last summer, Dae-ho Lee sets world record with 9 consecutive-game home runs.
9 consecutive-game home run Mix (By Demianblue)
Since making his Korean league debut in 2001, Lee currently has career-high batting average, RBIs, and home runs of .367, 111, and 38 at 394 bats, respectively. He stands atop in the hitting average, and the slugging percentage of .685. Lee’s career record is a .303 average with 704 RBIs at 3,600 at-bats
(16, April. 2011)
Last year, Lee won his second career triple crown by leading the league in batting average(.364), homers(44) and RBIs(133).
The Giant is noted for sweeping seven titles (except Steal) in the batter’s stats for the first-time ever in the league, along with a nine-straight game home run streak.
After 2010 season ended, Lee Dae Ho negotiated his annual salery with his team, Lotte Giants. Lee Dae Ho wanted 700 million won(about $ 0.7M) , but Lotte Giants claimed that he should get 630 million won(about $ 0.63M). Lee Dae Ho gave several reasons why he should get 700 million won for his annual salery. To begin with, he received the 1st place on seven titles of batting and made homeruns in 9 games in a row, so that there was marketing impact.
He was member of the WBC 2009, and Beijing Olympic 2008.
He is Shin-soo Choo(Indians) 's friend since they were Elemetary Student.
Team Korea earn Gold medal in Olympic 2008. He was not forced to go into the Korean military like Choo.
He plays 1B, 3B, DH
Last year, he played 3B. (Manager Jerry Royster's request) - season Error 11.
