Samsung manager Sun Dong-yeol announced his voluntary resignation today.
Sun sits in tenth place on the career wins list in the KBO. He's compiled a 417-340-13 record over six seasons with the Lions. He won championships in his first two seasons with the club in 2005 and 2006.
A replacement hasn't been named.
I'm honestly shocked by the announcement. He's one of the better managers in the KBO and one of the more quotable figures in a league full of uninteresting characters. He'll be missed.
