Even during the offseason Hyun-Jin Ryu can't live without Juan Uribe. Check out the above photograph I had originally seen on Reddit (via r/freischein) of Ryu taking in a ballgame at Jamshil Stadium in Seoul, Korea. As you can see, Ryu is wearing a Uribe signature cap, and it is glorious. These BFF's can't stand being apart, and I fully expect to see a photo of Uribe wearing a Ryu signature item very soon.
As I look more closely I am immediately struck by Ryu's expression. He is obviously not liking something, and I wonder what it is. I'd like to think a rancid smell has engulfed his space and that he suspects the gentleman on his right is the rude culprit. On the other hand, maybe the thought of losing Don Mattingly as his coach really bothers him. I dunno.
BTW, does anybody know where I can get one of these Juan Uribe lids? I must have one.

- Via Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider, "Jimmy Sheckard, the Yasiel Puig of 1901 (sort of, but just enough to make the headline work)."
- Via Jim Callis at MLB.com, "Shortstop Seager leads Los Angeles' talented crop of prospects playing for Glendale."
"When I struggled, that was the first time I ever struggled, so I had to really figure out myself," Seager said. "It helped me understand what I need to do to continue my success and continue not to hit those low patches all the time. When I do hit them, I know how to fix them."
- On the day we find out that highly sought after manager Joe Maddon has left the Rays a statement was released by Andrew Friedman via Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times on twitter:
Andrew Friedman: Don Mattingly will manage the #Dodgers next season. Joe Maddon's availability won't change that.
