Dodgers @ Reds June 12, 2014: Battles Within The Game

In the bottom of the third inning of last night’s game, Hyun-jin Ryu walked Billy Hamilton. Hamilton has largely been a disappointment on offense this season (he has a .290 OBP), but he’s still second in the majors in stolen bases. This walk was particularly notable because of the pitcher. Ryu has been absolutely exceptional at…

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. Now, via the great MyKBO, we have this, Ryu’s very…

Rockies 6, Dodgers 1: Just Forget Any Of That Happened

There’s three especially major parts to any baseball game. (And lesser parts like umpire, weather, manager, etc.) How’d that work out for the Dodgers against the Rockies today? Pitching — Hyun-jin Ryu, well… at least he didn’t walk anyone? But he did give up nine hits and six runs, including Josh Rutledge‘s crushing three-run homer…

I know! And once again, Hyun-jin Ryu is making people notice that the Dodgers have more than two outstanding starting…
