Sending Cardboard Love for Hyun-Jin Ryu's Return to the Mound

Aloha, everybody, 

2014 NLDS, Dodgers vs Cardinals. This man was on the bump for the boys in blue...

Ryu went six innings, only giving up one run on five hits. He struck out four. 

That was the last time Ryu pitched for the Dodgers. The Korean southpaw has been on the long-term DL ever since.
Hyun-Jin Ryu is one of my favorite pitchers when he's active in the rotation. I tend to favor southpaws, and I like the big man's fun personality. Did you know Juan Uribe was one of his closest friends back when he was with the team? 

 Perhaps Uribe had to go because the Dodgers couldn't afford to feed both of those guys on a daily basis. 

 Here's some sparkly red...(magenta?)

Ryu faces the Padres tonight; a team that he pitches well against. Also in his favor, is getting his first start at friendly Chavez Ravine, wearing the home whites. 

And the blue parallel...

A Bowman Chrome beauty...

Finally, another recycled photo on the regular issue Bowman...

Good luck to the lefty tonight!
