Hyun Jin Ryu takes the lead in the NL MVP race with his NH Card rap

There’s always a lot of talk about what makes a pitchers valuable, and there’s a lot of statistics to use. While ERA and FIP and SIERA and WAR and VORP are cute, there’s an important one that stat nerds will just never understand: VORPE.

Arsenal Analysis: Dodgers Worst Pitches Of 2014

Last time I took a look at the best pitches of 2014, so it’s only fair that take a look at the worst as well. It would be hard for the pitches to be worse than last year’s crop, but everybody sure tried their best. All the rules and disclaimers from last time apply here as well.

Arsenal Analysis: Dodgers Best Pitches Of 2014

Fans are always analyzing which pitchers have the best and worst pitches, but we normally base that on nothing but our own feelings in the moment, so I decided to take a more objective look at things, just like I did last year. Better late than never. —– For a pitch to qualify for these rankings, I used a 200-pitch minimum for starters and a 50-pitch minimum for relievers. The...

Changes Are Coming To The 40-Man Roster

Whenever it is that Hector Olivera‘s paperwork gets finalized, he’s going to need to be added to the 40-man roster. Assuming that at least one recipient of a minor league deal makes the team on Opening Day — probably Sergio Santos, particularly with Kenley Jansen, Hyun-jin Ryu, and Brandon League all likely to start the year on the disabled list — he’s also going to need...

Pitchers You Don’t Care About Are Getting Hurt

Dodger pitchers are getting injured every single second. In the time it took me to write that, four more Dodger pitchers got hurt. It’s a fact! That’s just science. ESPN’s Mark Saxon has more: Every day that goes by, the chances of the Dodgers trading for a starting pitcher seem to increase. Injuries are forcing the issue. On Friday morning, the team announced that Hyun-Jin...

Joe Wieland Is Perfectly Acceptable Rotation Depth

Hyun-jin Ryu‘s sore shoulder is clearly concerning, because it’s not the first time this has happened. The liner that hit Clayton Kershaw in the face yesterday was terrifying, but not much more than that, since it seems he’ll be fine. These two things are completely unrelated, other than that it shines a brighter light on what may yet be a lack of rotation depth, given the...

Los Angeles Dodgers could start season without Hyun-Jin Ryu

With spring training games now well under way and the season opener quickly approaching, the Los Angeles Dodgers are dealing with another injury from starter Hyun -Jin Ryu. At the end of February, Ryu complained of tightness in his back after a bullpen session. However, no one saw this as a serious concern.

Don’t Judge The Health Of The Dodger Rotation On Disabled List Trips

What’s the biggest potential weakness of the 2015 Dodgers? Everyone who just said “right-handed power” can go sit in the corner. Stop. Just stop it. That’s not it. That doesn’t matter. It is, probably without a ton of controversy, starting rotation depth. We’ve been over this a bunch of times. All five members of the 2015 rotation — Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun...

Player Profile #106: Hyun-jin Ryu | SP | LAD

Despite missing a half-dozen starts with a sore shoulder, which limited him to just 152 innings with an ERA that was 38 points higher that his seemingly stellar rookie season, I was very impressed with Hyun-jin Ryu last season. His strikeout and walk rates both improved, and his SIERA fell from 3.60 to 3.17. The soon-to-be 28-year-old was a better pitcher during his sophomore season...

Hyun-Jin Ryu: Quietly Awesome

Hyun-Jin Ryu isn’t the best Dodger starter, because Clayton Kershaw exists. He’s not the second-best Dodger starter, because Zack Greinke exists. If you can’t even make a case for being one of the two best starters on your own team, it’s going to be very difficult to make the case that you’re one of the […]

Hyun Jin Ryu’s Ottogi Noodle commercial showcases plus-plus mastication

Hyun Jin Ryu did another glorious commercial for Ottogi Noodle & Jin Ramen. Granted, nothing will quite top the sheer amazingness of the last one in all its fake teammate glory, but this did have its moments. My favorite is the capture above, because you can see his smirk as he thinks to himself, “My god, this is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever done in my life. Oh well...

Hyun-Jin Ryu continues to dominate the offseason

Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu is back to his old offseason tricks, beating the world in a decathlon it doesn't know it's participating in. Last year he rocked us with his vocal fortitude and noodle slurpability. This year, it's rope jumping. Ryu recently went on a Korean variety show and displayed his raw talents while laughing at those who struggled. I can only imagine that in the...

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.
