“I hated giving up walks since I was really young,” Ryu says. “It’s been ingrained in my head since then because my dad always told me, ‘You can give up home runs, but not walks.’ I think that’s what helped me to have the kind of control I have over my pitches now.”
Generally, though, playing .800 ball for two months isn’t a fluke. Some of the greatest teams in baseball history — those ’01 Mariners, the ’75 Reds, the ’54 Indians, the ’39 Yankees, the ’29 A’s — are on the list of teams to have pulled it off. That’s the company the Dodgers keep now — and they were 32-40 when they started this run.
