Hiroki Kuroda closed his eyes before serving up home run to Andrew Romine

Kuroda closed his eyes as he threw that pitch to Romine.

Preview: Yankees at Rangers (7/30/14)

Will Yankees Pitcher Hiroki Kuroda Retire?

It’s not exactly recent news that Hiroki Kuroda is contemplating retirement. The New York Yankees pitcher said as much at the end of the season, and, unfortunately, he has yet to decide against it. We kind of thought that Kuroda’s mention of retirement was smoke and mirrors, but it looks like he may be serious. Yanks GM Brian Cashman recently said that he doesn’t know...
