Get To Know This Year’s Foreign Imports: Japan

After yesterday’s look at Korean import possibilities, today we move on to a pair of Japanese pitchers. Remember, while in Korea, the old posting rules are in effect — MLB teams bid blindly, the KBO accepts one, and then the MLB team has exclusive negotiating rights for 30 days — things have changed in Japan. The NBP team sets a posting fee (capped this year at $20m) and then...

Get To Know This Year’s Foreign Imports: Korea

Prior to 2013, the Dodgers went out and got themselves Korean lefty Hyun-jin Ryu, and you might say that’s worked out really, really well. Despite the initial uncertainty from some corners of the baseball world — totally understandable for a player making the jump from the other side of the planet to the big leagues, of course — Ryu has been just fantastic for the Dodgers...

Hyun-Jin Ryu shares his Jin Ramen with fake Dodgers teammates

As you should know by now, my Twitter profile picture is of fake Clayton Kershaw, the one who took over for him in the seventh inning of his NLDS starts this year (sorry, I had to). As you should also know by now, that image comes from a glorious Hyun-Jin Ryu commercial out of Korea for Ottogi Noodle/Jin Ramen, which we first saw via TBLA earlier this month, and now Soon Sports has...

Youth movement key to Dodgers' offseason

Whether the Los Angeles Dodgers retain general manager Ned Colletti or fire him, the team is on a mission this offseason to find a way to get a younger roster while remaining competitive and to avoid signing any more bad long-term contracts. When you think about it, that’s kind of the same thing. The Dodgers figure to be in the market for a starting pitcher this winter, but they...

How Did That Dodger Bullpen Get So Bad?

In Game 1 of the NLDS, Don Mattingly left in Clayton Kershaw to absorb a beating in part because he didn’t trust his bullpen. In Game 2, he lifted Zack Greinke, only to watch veteran J.P. Howell give a lead away. In Game 3, he rode Hyun-jin Ryu as far as he felt was realistic […]

Just How Bad Was the Strike Zone in Game 3?

Don Mattingly, the manager of the near-elimination Los Angeles Dodgers, called umpire Dale Scott’s strike zone from Game 3 “generous.” He told the media many Dodgers were complaining about the strike zone, and “that puts you in a bind.” Matt Kemp, the Dodgers’ right fielder, was slightly less discreet in his feelings about Scott’s calls on Monday evening. Of the strike...

Mailbag #11: Playoff Rotation, Mattingly’s Effect, Front Office, Joc Concerns

Greg: What would the playoff rotation be? This question still totally depends on Hyun Jin Ryu‘s health. Assuming Ryu is healthy and that the Dodgers win the division, they should have everybody rested for the NLDS on Oct. 3. That means a rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun Jin Ryu, and Dan Haren. I honestly cannot see them playing match-ups with the rotation order...
