Obviously, Dodger fans wanted a sweep. But game one seemed like the game that could slip away from their hands. The Giants have been playing incredible baseball of late and were sending their ace, Madison...

Hyun-Jin Ryu Has A Theme Song Now

One thing that I love about Hyun-jin Ryu being with the Dodgers (other than his pitching, of course) is the way his home country supports him. Over the offseason we had some amusing commercials starring Ryu. Fans and media will travel to see Ryu pitch.

Hyun Jin Ryu’s Impending Sophomore Slump?

Without Masahiro Tanaka in the fold, and with the fifth starter role still up in the air, Hyun Jin Ryu‘s ability to be consistent as the Dodgers‘ #3 starter becomes all the more important to the quality and depth of the 2014 starting rotation.
