HIROKI KURODA RUMORS

Joel Sherman says it (He said it last August too): "Maybe these Yanks would be better off getting clobbered by the lowly White Sox this weekend, having their fate fully defined and taking advantage of pitching needs with the Angels and Dodgers to see if t

It's what we all know: If the Yankees last August had accepted their dismal, starkly apparent, also-ran fate, imagine the implications for 2014.1. No trade for Alfonso Soriano, who through July sat in our bellies like a State Fair deep-fried pat of butter.2. We could have traded Robby Cano for a front-line prospect, or maybe three. If we scored a young 2B, we would have been...

Kuroda The Victim In Yankees First RISP Fail Of The Season

Though the starting pitching was better last night it wasn't perfect. Too bad, because it needed to be perfect in order for the Yankees to win.  It wasn't perfect and, as a result, the Yankees remain winless so far in this young season.This young season reminds me of a few years ago when there was a huge problem regarding runners in scoring position (RISP). Last night&...

Hiroki Kuroda remains extremely valuable to New York Yankees

When the New York Yankees initially signed Hiroki Kuroda to a one-year deal in 2012, I’m not sure they felt he would still be on the roster in 2014. Based on his performance in his two seasons in the Bronx, I bet they are happy he is still in pinstripes.Kuroda instantly became a stabilizing force in the rotation in 2012, picking up the slack when necessary en route to a 16-11...
