Those wild and crazy Padres tried to sign Hiroki Kuroda

Before Hiroki Kuroda signed with NPB’s Hiroshima Carp last week, he had an American suitor other than the New York Yankees – the San Diego Padres. Because let’s be honest here, there’s one thing the Padres *haven’t* done during their insane winter – acquire a top-tier starting pitcher. According to Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres were serious...

Yankees lose old safety net in Kuroda

Hiroki Kuroda did the same thing he did each of the last two offseasons; he went home to Japan to contemplate what he’d do the following season. His previous decisions took time to formulate but Kuroda eventually opted to return to the Bronx. This time he's staying put in Japan as Kuroda signed with the Hiroshima Carp of the Nippon Professional Baseball league, the team he began...

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's 0-10 RISP...
