I hope Ned gets a deal done quickly with Ryu. I do not want them going for Dickey, a trade that would involve Zach Lee.

So pumped about the Dodgers rotation. Even without Ryu, or with Ryu coming out of the pen for a year...

Kershaw
Greinke
Beckett
Billingsley
Capuano


Maybe one of the best rotations in the league.

Not to mention they STILL want to add another starter.

More notes on Greinke: http://espn.go.com/blog/statsinfo/po...e-k-bb-hr-rate

Greinke's a funny guy: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...&postcount=106

I like the greinke deal as well, I was worried initially it would be astronomically high...as in more than what CC Sabathia got at 160 million plus.

Greinke and Ryu in a 24 hour period. Is this a dream?






Anyone else feel like everytime he gets a strikeout the fans should yell "HADOOOOOOOKEN"

The link contains a photo of Ryu taking in a Lakers game.

Not so sure that is wise. After watching the Lakers play, maybe he will want to rescind his deal.

BTW, I've been pronouncing "Hyun", "Hun" (like Hyundai). Oh well.

I've seen it pronounced Yoo or Ree-yoo. Probably Ree-yoo is the official. Not Roo though. I can understand the confusion though since Asian languages are so frickin difficult.

My frustration with ESPN 710 (KSPN) finally went over the top today...I really wish I still was into hard rock (KLOS) but I am too old to have my ears pounded and of course the big easy (KTWV) went all-xmas-music in July, so I can't listen to that without wanting to blow my brains out, so I am more or less "forced" (or turn the radio off, which I do more and more) to listen to "all Laker problems, all the time" on KSPN.

Now, I understand its the Lakers flagship station and all, but they don't talk about the Clippers AT ALL. And the only time they noticed that a hockey team resided in Los Angeles is when "all of a sudden" the team appeared in the SCF. I think at the time a vague promise was made to follow the Kings (yeah, right), but the NHL bailed them out by deciding to be a non-league this season.

Anyway, I sent the following three tweets to them. Just my "I'm mad as hell, and I am not going to take it anymore!" moment. No, don't bother telling me it won't do any good, I know it won't. But Twitter is a great tonic to blow off some steam. So I took advantage of it.

Can you please talk about the Clippers and Kings (LA), to mix it up a little? So monotonous always about Laker problems.

I am sick and tired of hearing Lakers this and Lakers that, you guys can wear out the most true and tried Laker fans.


Do you guys realize how ridiculous it sounds during cross talk when four people are all trying to shout above each other?

Haha, nice rant. I can't listen to sports talk radio right now. I'm too devastated by the Manny Pacquiao loss and I don't want to be reminded by it.

I understand. The whole nation of the Philippines is in mourning.

I will say this: at least today it took about an hour away from the Lakers obituary. That is something, at least.

Max and Marcelles are hoooorrible! Two non Hockey guys, one a former NFLer and the other is just flat out annoying. I love the way he keeps saying the Lakers are going to go off once Nash gets back. Epic hilarious! Lakers are awwwweful! John Ireland is the only one who understands and is remotely interested in hockey and the Kings. Steve Mason is tolerable but knows a lick about puck. Sports talk in LA is terrible!

Not to mention Kellerman is a New York guy pretending to be an LA fan. I have no idea why they hired this ****er. Bring back Lee Klein.

I think they hired him for the Fox TV networks and this is part of the package.

When he first started, he was all "New York" this and "New York" that, and I am thinking to myself, WTF? I guess somebody got to him so, as you say, pretend to be a Laker fan. It's hilarious that he still thinks the Lakers will be going to the Finals. Not with that defense.

Another issue with that station is they always put the Jets games on. I mean, really? WTF is that all about? I just don't get it.
