Analysis: Dodgers, Hyun-jin Ryu agree to contract

| No Comments

I chose to analyze the article "Dodgers, Hyun-jin Ryu agree to contract," written by Mark Saxon.

The reporter used the numbers of Ryu's contract and broke them down by year. The article deals with his posting fee, which is the money the team spent to be able to negotiate a contract, and then it talks about his current contract and clauses in it.

It doesn't seem like the reporter requires a lot of computer skills to do this reporting. I'm not sure that that would have been appropriate for this article anyways. I think that the way the
reporter uses the data in this article is sufficient.

Similarly, it doesn't seem like the writer used any interactive graphics to engage the reader. I think that they should have used a graphic which documents how much money the Dodgers have tied up to starting pitchers right now because that would show readers what this deal really means.
