The Los Angeles Dodgers just keep sending money this off season. A day after adding Zack Greinke to an already crowded rotation the team has worked out a deal with Korean born pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Earlier this off season the Dodgers won rights to negotiate with Ryu after forking over a $25.74 million posting fee. The contract with the pitcher himself will set the Dodgers back another $36 million over the next six seasons reports Jon Heyman.
To recap the Dodgers current rotation. They have Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke set to occupy the top two spots and then it gets a little murky.
Josh Becket, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly, Chris Capuano, Aaron Hargan and Ryu will all figure to expect to fill the other three spots. With a payroll well north of $200 million for next season the Dodgers are clearly not concerned with the luxury tax and are in trying to win at all costs.

I'm not saying I like them, mind you -- right-hander Tommy...
The Dodger are trying everything they can to make themselves competitive this year. The huge trade they pulled off last season didn’t pan out the way they thought it would, so they were going to do something in the off season to make a sudden push to the top again. As a Padres fan I am hoping they fall flat on their face. Especially after yesterday they signed Zack Greinke to a...
