He submitted his resignation and left the team.

More than 15 days have passed since then. There has been no news of the refurbishment yet. This means that he is carefully examining the situation. The general manager is as important as the coach. I cannot afford to waste more time because I suffered a lot of hardships.

Right now, Min Kyung-sam is a former general manager. The team leaders of each department are also veterans. They put their heads together, and they caught a wide range of candidates. Various figures were mentioned. It was decided that a person with professional experience was needed.

“Now is not the time to talk about speed battles. It is time to select well, not quickly. We are also nominating candidates for commentators, journalists, professors, KBO advisors, and agents, as well as leaders and former general managers.”

It seems that the candidates have been decided first. “We selected candidates, and the president said, ‘From now on, I will take charge of it.’ I don’t think we can appoint them quickly. I don’t think the president will be in a hurry either,” a SSG official said.

“It’s hard to say ‘when’ at this point. I’m going to take my time. It’s urgent, but we have a lot of work to do. I’m looking at candidates all over the place. If possible, I could go right before the spring camp,” Min said.

We still have a lot of time left until the opening of the 2024 season. However, off-season is important to baseball teams as it is to off-season. SSG still has important work to do, including contract with FA Kim Min-sik and contract with foreign player.

It is something that those who have it can handle. Representative Min is also well-versed in various tasks. It is a stance that we will look carefully and decide on this.

In the past, SSG had no general manager for a season when it was with SK. It spent two years from 2008 to 2009 under the leadership of Min Kyung-sam, head of the operations division, and Jang Soon-il, head of the marketing division.

In 2008, he won the title both in the regular season and the Korean Series, and in 2009, he advanced to the Korean Series after ranking second without a gap with KIA, the No. 1 player in the regular season. He unfortunately ended up in second place after a great game that lasted to Game 7.

After finishing the 2009 season, he returned to the general manager system. Min Kyung-sam became the general manager at the time. He served as the general manager until 2016, left the team for a while, and returned to the team as the CEO in 2020.

It took 17 days from the dismissal of former head coach Kim Won-hyung to the appointment of head coach Lee Sung-yong. Similar times have passed since the demotion of former general manager Kim Sung-yong.

It is not exactly the same situation as 15 years ago, but it is the same in that there is no leader anyway. Since it is not a direction to eliminate the organization itself, it is expected that the leader will be appointed at any point. It seems that it needs more time. Considering the tyranny of SSG, which showed abnormal moves in a short period of time, it has already become a reluctant position.
