On the 22nd (Korean time), visiting the club’s training ground in Peoria, Arizona, USA, Seidler said, “We have to go to the next step of winning the World Series. The reason we are here,” he said, revealing his determination for the new season.

San Diego entered the postseason as a wild card last season with 89 wins, and advanced to the championship series by defeating the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers in succession.

During the offseason, aggressive investments were made to reinforce the power. They acquired Zander Bogatz for 11 years for $280 million, and renewed contracts with Robert Suarez and Darvish Yu.

San Diego is expected to record a total annual salary of $251 million in the 2023 season based on ‘Fan Graphs’ predictions.

There are many voices of concern. Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort said, “I can’t agree with everything they do,” and Commissioner Rob Manfred said, “The key is how long they can keep doing it and what will happen during the rebuilding process.”

“People have different opinions,” says Seidler. It makes the world go round,” he says, respecting other people’s opinions, but “I don’t spend a lot of time figuring out what other people think. I only think about the people inside right now,” he said, not being conscious of the outside gaze.

“It just feels good. I believe we have a chance to bring the championship trophy back to San Diego.”

When asked if the current team situation is ‘sustainable’, he said, “People really like that word,” and said, “It’s sustainable to put a great team, a winning team, on the field every year in San Diego.”

In addition, he also expressed his thoughts on another word ‘risk’ that often appears, saying, “We talk about risk, but there is risk even when we do nothing.”

“Every team has a unique environment,” he continued, adding, “Our situation is also unique. They have fans who love the sport and are hungry (to win). We believe that if we continue to build trust, fans will come. Winning baseball, playing exciting baseball is important. Our fans, regardless of age or gender, will want to see good players play every year.”

To the question, ‘If we can’t make it to the World Series, is this season a failure?’, he responded with a smile and replied, “One day, if the baseball god sends a smile to the San Diego Padres, we will be able to win a championship parade.”

On the other hand, he showed an extremely reserved appearance about the situation of Manny Machado, who can opt out after this season. Instead, he responded with, “All I can say is, ‘He’s my number one priority.'”
