Dodgers spent too much money for Ryu

Dodgers spent too much money for Ryu 



Dodgers won a posting system for Ryu, a Korean pitcher.

But, I don't think it's a good choice.

He can't even pitch 200 innings a season in Korean League.

The level of Korean League is under AA. Maybe similar to A.

Dodgers can find a better one even from their own farm.

Let me tell you about Korean League.(KBO)

The Leading hitter of KBO is Kim with .363

But do you know he was .250 and 1 homerun in 2011 season in JAPAN?

and another hitter Lee has .307 in KBO.

but he had .210 in JAPAN in 2011.

It tells us that the level of KBO is far less than that of JAPAN league.

now, think about it.

Darvish had 1.99 for his carrer ERA in JAPAN.

last 4 seasons, he had 1.88, 1.73, 1.78, 1.44.

and he usually passed more than 200 innings per season.

but, now he can't get that kind of monster stat.

It's because Batters of MLB are much better than JAPAN so he can't get any relaxation during the game.

What do you think of Ryu?

He can't even take 200 innings in KOREA.

He can't even get under 2.00 ERA. in KOREA.

Do you think Ryu is available for MLB???

I don' t think so.

Dodgers should spend that money for their minor league young players.

The Korean league season is only 133 games it would be very hard to get to 200 innings with that short a season.  The guy is only 25 and has a lot of potential seems like a lot of angst for a guy that is just comming into his prime...

^^^^THIS.

Also, the short season speaks to the 175 inning/year clause. For marketing alone, this is a great signing; even if he ends up as an expensive lefty out of the pen. (though every other scout projects 2/3 starter)
