“Everything about the Chicago Cubs is good.”

Ahead of the major league trade deadline on the 1st of next month, Marcus Stroman (32), a veteran ace of the Cubs, publicly expressed his desire to remain with the team.온라인바카라

In a recent interview with local media, Stroman said, “I want to stay here for a long time,” and expressed his affection for his team, saying, “No matter what happens in the future (until the trade deadline), the Cubs will be on the list of teams I want to sign with in the offseason when I become a free agent.” This season, as of the 22nd (Korean time), Stroman is posting an outstanding record of 10 wins (tied for 4th in the National League), 7 losses and an average ERA of 3.09 (3rd in the league).

However, the Cubs remain in third place in the Central Division of the National League with a season record of 46 wins and 51 losses. Even in the wild card race given to the three teams in each league, it is in seventh place, and there are six games with the third-place group, so advancing to the postseason is virtually on the water.

Accordingly, the American media is predicting that the Cubs will soon trade key players such as Stroman and Cody Bellinger (28). According to a recent MLB.com report, Ryu Hyun-jin’s (36-year-old) team, Toronto, is also showing great interest in Stroman ahead of the trade deadline.

Bellinger was released from the Los Angeles Dodgers after last season due to poor performance, but he made a perfect comeback this season wearing a Cubs uniform. He has a season batting average of 0.317, 13 home runs and 37 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.913 combined with on-base percentage and slugging percentage. He hit 47 homers while with the Dodgers in 2019 and won the National League MVP (Most Valuable Player), but it is the best performance in the last 4 years.

“Bellinger and I want to stay on the team, but it’s not something we can do about it. Baseball is a business after the game is over. It’s very difficult to leave the Cubs, which the fans love so much,” Stroman said.

Stroman, a native of New York State, was drafted by Toronto in the first round (22 overall) of the 2012 Major League Baseball Draft and entered the professional league. He debuted in the major leagues in 2014, just two years later, and posted an excellent record of 11 wins and 6 losses with an ERA of 3.65 in his first year. After that, he moved to the New York Mets and then to the Cubs last year. His career big league record is 77-74 with a 3.57 earned run average.
