Los Angeles Angels
Maybe Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were wrong. The Los Angeles Dodgers may prove you can get what you want and what you need. The only question left is whether Dodgers fans will get satisfaction.
Ryu Hyun-jin pitched for Korea in the 2009 World Baseball Classic at Dodger Stadium.
After the 2012 season ended, Dodgers GM Ned Colletti made it clear he would be looking for a couple of top-notch starters. Colletti first got what he wanted when he reached an agreement with the grand prize of this winter’s free agent list, Zack Greinke. And faced with the prospects of a soon-to-be 37-year old Ted Lilly and 34-year old Chris Capuano as the lefthanded starters who would follow Clayton Kershaw, the team certainly needed a southpaw to slot in behind the right-handed Greinke.
On Monday, the Dodgers introduced starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-Jin(rhymes with Gin). Say who? Well, considering the team is paying the man $36 million dollars over the next 6 years, it might be a good idea to learn who ...

If you think Zack Greinke just signed a big free-agent contract, wait three years.
He might get an even bigger deal then.
Greinke's six-year, $147 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers includes an opt-out clause that enables him to return to the open market midway through the agreement, major-league sources say.
Talk about perfect timing: By the time Greinke is eligible...
LOS ANGELES Finally.
An honest man.
Maybe even two.
Zack Greinke said that when it came down to choosing the Dodgers over other teams pursuing him, it was all about the money.
The new Dodgers right-hander said that he was leaning toward joining the Texas Rangers before taking the Dodgers offer of 147 million over six years.
The negotiations changed, he said.
Was it the money...
Mike Petriello of Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness reported tonight the Dodgers have sent infield prospect Jake Lemmerman to the Cardinals for infielder/outfielder Skip Schumaker.
The Dodgers, in need of a bench player, land a versatile player in Schumaker, 32, who can play second base and the outfield (including center field). He isn't going to unseat Mark Ellis as...
On Saturday, the Los Angeles Dodgers gave one of the biggest contracts in baseball history to Zack Greinke. On Sunday, the Dodgers gave a big contract to Ryu Hyun-Jin, who has never before pitched in the majors. The Dodgers still might not even be done, and neither of the moves this weekend came as a surprise, because as we’ve established, the Dodgers have all of the money. The...
The Dodgers seem to have no limit on their spending this offseason.
The team agreed to a six-year, $36 million contract with Hyun-Jin Ryu on Sunday, after winning his negotiation rights in November by submitting a $25.74 million posting fee, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Ryu will join Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Josh Beckett and Chad Billingsley in the Dodgers’ formidable...
It was announced this past Sunday that the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed left handed pitching sensation Hyun-Jin Ryu to a huge, six year contract. With the signing, the team will see a lot more depth in their starting pitching position that will surely make them more dangerous as a team in 2013. Ultimately, this signing makes the Los Angeles Dodgers viable MLB picks...
It must be good to be a Dodger fan nowadays. With Frank McCourt a distant memory, a roster full of talent, and an ownership group willing to use its vast resources to aggressively sign free agents, it seems that optimism abounds once again at Chavez Ravine.
Case in point: the Los Angeles Dodgers today announced the signing of left-handed starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu to a six...
South Korean left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin has signed with the Dodgers, who expect him to be part of the rotation next season.
Update: The deal is worth 36 million over six years. Ryu can opt out of his contract after five seasons if he has pitched 750 innings.
The signing of Ryu comes a day after the Dodgers reached an agreement to sign free agent Zack Greinke for 147 million over...
From Joel Sherman:If it needed any further punctuation, the Dodgers established that they — not the Yankees — are the financial heavyweights of baseball yesterday by reaching agreement with Zack Greinke on a six-year, $147 million contract.
Unless the Yankees come out of their economic cocoon, they will not have the largest payroll in the game for the first time since 1998...
Step aside, New York Yankees. Move over, Boston Red Sox. There's a new spoiled rich kid team in town: the Los Angeles Dodgers.After signing Zack Greinke to a six year, $147 million contract yesterday, the Dodgers have boosted their payroll up to roughly $225 million, well beyond anyone else in baseball. Considering $208 million was spent this winter on two players (Greinke...
So what’s next for the 2012-2013 off-season champion Dodgers?
Danny Knobler says Anibal Sanchez has been discussed, but Buster Olney says the Dodgers aren’t going to be signing any more pitchers.
As far as Sanchez goes, I’m inclined to believe Olney, because while I believe the team’s budget is comically high, I do believe they have one and that it would simply be overkill...
Well, it happened. Zack Greinke is staying in Southern California, but he'll be doing so wearing Dodger Blue and all the Angels have to show for it is a wobbly rotation and a giant hole in their farm system where three quality prospects used to be.
Some corners of the baseball world are applauding Jerry Dipoto for the restraint he showed in not giving into Greinke's...
The Dodgers could be dealing some starters soon, the Rangers` options are shrinking, and the Yankees will likely be reunited with Ichiro.
