Kuo, Vadis?

There haven't been many players that I've really, personally wanted to see succeed like I want to see Hong-Chih Kuo succeed.

As Expected Dodgers Non-Tender Kuo

The Dodgers have announced that they will not offer Hong-Chih Kuo a contact this winter. Kuo was expected to make at least $2MM in 2012.
