Remember when the Los Angeles Dodgers new ownership group came on board and everyone predicted they'll be opening up their wallets and spending some cash on bringing in talent?Yeah...it's a real thing.Already in the fold for 2013 are Hanley Ramirez and Adrian Gonzalez.  Now, it would seem, you can add Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-Jin.  You see, this weekend, the team learned that they had submitted the winning bid to talk to the lefty...for a tidy sum of $25.7 million.And, according to his agent, Scott Boras (naturally), Ryu could immediately be the a number three starter in the Majors.“He’s ready to pitch in the big leagues right now,” Scott Boras said. “He’s not a developmental project.”According to Boras, the intention is for Ryu to be in the starting rotation somewhere and whether or not Los Angeles will depend on how they plan on using him.  Failure to comply might send the 25-year-old back to the Hanwha Eagles.Ryu owns a career record of 98-52 with a 2.80 ERA in seven seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization.  In each of his seven seasons, he was named an All-Star.In 2010, he set a KBO record with 17 strikeouts in one game.
