Ryu for Comeback Pitcher of the Year

Ryu

Can he, will he, could he possibly pitch like he did his first two years with the Dodgers?  His fastball is sitting 86-88 mph, but has touched 91 mph.  He showed a good first start a few days ago.  McCarthy didn’t show too much greatness yesterday, so today it is Ryu’s chance.  He’s going against the Cubs, so this will not be a gimme.

  1. TBLA seems to think the starting rotation will be Kershaw, Maeda, Hill, McCarthy, and Wood. I guess they didn’t consult trublu4ever.

  2. Ryu was encouraging. Yea I read the article about SP for dodgers, seems Urias will be nursed in april / may.
    Kazmir still sore. There are openings for Stipling, but a couple more weeks left and a starting four is not solid.

    • The starting two is solid – Kershaw and Maeda. Except that Maeda is more like a #4 than a #2. Rich Hill will not be solid until he can prove that he can start more than 15 games in a row without developing a blister. Hence the blister board.

  3. This team may be deep, but it still doesn’t have any pitching. One and a half starters and maybe 2 RPs.

    It would appear also that Puig never will get it. How do you get kicked out of a ST game?

    Agon(e). Really? So there was a mix-up in the tiebreaker. Get over it.

    I may have to revise that 97 wins.

  4. Other than revamping the entire farm system, which is huge, and stretching the roster around the margins, which is good for another 3-4 wins during the season, this FO still makes an awful lot of Ned-like moves.

    No one can compete with Ned’s waste of a half billion dollars, but this FO has already wasted $96M on PVLs McCarthy and Kazmir, either one of which was a bad sign when it was made given their histories. I’m of the opinion that Hill will be added to that list as well.

    And ex-Gnat Romo was a very Nedesque pick-up, as was Gutierrez.

    But then if you look at the histories of Friedman and Zaidi, they have a knack for building farms and improving margins, but very little in dealings with top end talent.
