“You’re right, it wasn’t worth 9.5 billion won at LG. Sorry to the fans.” Cha Woo-chan’s honest confession, I did that then

“This is black and white. I’m sorry to the fans.”

Cha Woo-chan (37, retirement) boldly raised sensitive issues on the 5th through a YouTube channel “Chichichichichichichichichichichichichichichichichichichichich which he and comedian Do Kwang-rok run together. Looking back on the six years he spent with the LG Twins before retiring as an active player, he admitted to himself that it was “FA munch and run.”

Cha Woo-chan graduated from Gunsan Commercial High School and joined the Samsung Lions in 2006 as the seventh pick in the second round of the first round. Although he had chronic difficulties in controlling the ball, he became a 10-win pitcher in 2010, jumping to the top left-hander in Korea. After playing consistently in the middle of the starting lineup, he signed a four-year, 9.5 billion won contract with LG in the 2016-2017 FA market.

However, he did not play so well for LG. He recorded 12 wins and 10 losses and a 6.09 ERA in 29 games in 2018, 13 wins and 8 losses and a 4.12 ERA in 29 games in 2-019, and 5 wins and 5 losses and a 5.34 ERA in 13 games in 2020. He then renewed his two-year, 2 billion won FA contract with LG. However, he recorded 2 wins and 1 loss and a 5.24 ERA in five games in 2021. He failed to play in any games in 2022. He then signed with Lotte Giants, but ended his career without playing in any games.

Reflecting on his four-year, 9.5 billion won contract, Cha said, “It wasn’t worth the money. I won’t say that I did my best. I’m a professional. I signed a four-year contract, but I played full-time for the first three years. My ERA was not good, but I recorded a lot of innings and quality starts. However, as I was paid that much, I needed to have good figures. It wasn’t bad for three years, but it wasn’t worth the money.”

Reflecting on the 2018 season when he underwent surgery to remove bone fragments in his elbow, Cha said, “There were many games where I lost a lot of points. It wasn’t just a little bit, but it shook a lot. My elbow hurt a lot, too. It would have been nice if I got the surgery early, but I played baseball in 2018 while sick all year round (in October 2018). Still, I did well in the first and third years. I played in the postseason and the national team in 2019.”

In fact, it was regrettable that 2020 was a year when he dropped out during the season due to shoulder issues. Cha said, “I prepared well for the last year. I started rotation from the beginning. As I did it, my shoulder felt pain little by little. Still, I wanted to finish the season well, but it was a pity that it didn’t work out.”

According to Cha Woo-chan’s theorem, 2017 and 2019 were okay, but his ERA was high. In 2018, he did not make an excuse because his ERA was around six points. Thinking of 2020, he admitted to eating and running. “The fourth season was eating and running. It was a loss for me and the team 헤라카지노. The fourth season was eating and running.”

Cha Woo-chan has suffered from shoulder pain since 2020. Since he had shoulder surgery at the end of September 2021, he repeatedly tried to rehabilitate for quite a while and it didn’t work out. In 2021, he went to the Tokyo Olympics, and he did his best, but it didn’t work out. In fact, his active life ended at this time.

Cha candidly confessed that he had more than a 9.5 billion won guaranteed contract. However, he said, “What’s in the article is not true. We announce the total amount now, but we didn’t have to announce the option then. It wasn’t an easy option either. I had an overseas agent at the time, but I made the domestic contract. Anyway, I didn’t get all of them. I couldn’t do it. I have to apologize to the fans.”

After that, Cha Woo-chan applied for an FA again and signed a two-year, 2 billion won contract. However, it failed to happen. He had two wins, one loss, and a 5.24 ERA in five games in 2021. Since he decided to have shoulder surgery during this contract, he could not play properly. “Two years, 2 billion won was the total amount, 600 million won was guaranteed, and 1.4 billion won was optional. I couldn’t play because I was sick, and it was the most difficult situation,” he said.

Cha said, “I talked a lot about the second FA. The process was not good, but I played only five games and closed the season, and only rehabilitated in the second season. I feel very sorry for the team and sorry for the fans in the second contract with LG.”

Cha admitted that he spent six years with LG and sincerely apologized to LG fans. “I wanted to do it properly, but I admit that I didn’t do well. Still, I still liked LG and had fun playing baseball. I don’t know how I will help the baseball community in the future, but I will pay it back step by step,” Cha said.
