Is it the fate of being the last in ten thousand years? The ending of ‘Nurture Expert’ also ended in failure.
The Hanwha Eagles changed their manager during the season. On the night of the 11th, Hanwha announced that it had “appointed coach Choi Won-ho as the club’s 13th coach” and “terminated the contract with manager Carlos Subero.”
Director Subero is a person who appeared with Hanwha’s declaration of full rebuilding.
As Hanwha began rebuilding the team ahead of the 2021 season, coach Subero, who served as manager of a number of minor league teams from 2001 to 2015 and coached the Milwaukee Brewers from 2016 to 2019, was appointed to the command tower.
Coach Subero스포츠토토, a “training expert” who appeared amid expectations, drew attention with his extreme defensive shift in his first year in office.
However, the results were not satisfactory. He tried to grow by giving opportunities to young players, but he stayed at the bottom of both 2021 and last year. His rebuilding achievements were not highly evaluated either.
The final season of his contract, which was in precarious circumstances, ended less than two months after the opening.
The club, which had already discussed replacing the manager after the 2022 season, decided to change after thinking about the position of the command tower while the team lost in a row from the 26th of last month to the 2nd. As the group’s family declined, on the 11th, it was announced that Choi Won-ho was appointed as a new manager.
The Hanwha under the Subero coaching system finished with a total of 106 wins, 15 draws, 198 odds of 0.349. It is the lowest among the 10 clubs in this period.

Hanwha’s manager change during the season is actually not a strange scene.
After coach Kim In-sik, who held the baton from 2004 to 2009, stepped down, 4 out of 5 coaches Hanwha chose parted ways during the season.
Hanwha, which has been pushed to the bottom since the late 2000s, has become a team where it is very difficult to guarantee a manager’s tenure.
While the team continued to move around the bottom ranks, it was repeated that the command tower was replaced to renew the atmosphere, or the manager resigned in the form of voluntary resignation.
Manager Han Dae-hwa, who replaced Kim In-sik, left the team during the 2012 season, and manager Kim Seong-geun took off his clothes during the 2016 season. During the 2020 season, coach Han Yong-deok stepped down.
In the 2010s, the only Hanwha coach who completed his tenure was Kim Eung-yong, who served in the 2013-2014 season.
From 2008 to last year, Hanwha was only able to step on the postseason in 2018 while finishing at the bottom eight times.
At the time, coach Han Yong-deok, who was from a franchise, presented the team with the first fall baseball in 11 years in his first year in office. However, Hanwha, led by manager Han, fell to 9th place again the following year, and during the 2020 season, they fell into a crisis again as they lost 14 consecutive losses. In the end, even one coach had no choice but to return the baton during the season.
Hanwha, who forgot the ‘beautiful farewell’, has now passed on to coach Choi Won-ho.
Director Choi’s contract period is 3 years, and the detailed conditions are 200 million won down payment, 300 million won annual salary, and 300 million won option.
