“It was a difficult negotiation, but it is fortunate that a conclusion has been reached. The club gave a lot of thought to the player’s position. It was difficult, but I think the club took care of it. I will do my best to help the team by focusing on training in the future.”
This is what Song Eun-beom said after signing the contract after tedious negotiations with the LG club.
Song Eun-beom, the only non-contractor from LG, signed a cut of 10 million won. He signed a contract for 140 million won, a reduction of 10 million won from the previous 150 million won.
Song Eun-beom participated in 25 games last year and recorded 1 win, 1 loss, 2 holds, and an average ERA of 4.05.
It can be said that he successfully returned after undergoing surgery for ruptured knee ligaments in the 2021 season. However, the club took issue with Song Eun-beom’s small number of games.
Song Eun-beom insisted on freezing, emphasizing that the injury occurred during the game while playing for the team.
However, LG consistently pushed for a cut of 10 million won. 먹튀검증
After leaving the spring camp, the LG club even issued a press release. It was the contents of the contract agreement with 44 people excluding Song Eun-beom.
Usually, press releases come when there is no room for further negotiations. LG showed a strong attitude enough to issue a press release without Song Eun-beom.
Still, what part of the club did Song Eun-beom consider consideration?
Song Eun-beom’s side said, “Although there was a difference in the amount, it wasn’t that the negotiation process was bad. The cuts were unfortunate, but acceptable. He may not be able to sign easily, but I could feel that the club was trying to be as considerate of Song Eun-beom as possible in its own way. It was not an oppressive atmosphere at all. He thinks that he came up with the best possible plan in a good atmosphere. Song Eun-beom also said, “I think I will try to throw a ball that can help the team this season by participating in normal training as soon as possible.”
It is true that the LG club cared about Song Eun-beom’s heart. He tried to be careful with every word he said to prevent any emotional rifts that might develop during the negotiation process.
Even though Song Eun-beom was negotiating and passed the January 31st deadline, he showed sincerity in individual training at LG Champions Park in Icheon.
This is why both sides were able to stamp their seals without hurting their feelings.
It was LG and Song Eun-beom, who had been in confrontation for a considerable amount of time, three months. But the ending was a happy ending. It was never easy for Song Eun-beom to accept the cut, but the LG club did their best during the negotiation process, so he was able to reduce the hurt in his heart.
LG still needs Song Eun-beom.
Core bullpens Jung Woo-young and Ko Woo-seok are highly likely to be selected for the Asian Games in September. At least one more bullpen pitcher needs to be prepared. There will always come a time when a bullpen pitcher with a lot of experience and a variety of uses like Song Eun-beom can be used.
The result was a cut, but that’s why we can remember this negotiation as a win-win.
