Everybody needs a Hiro.
Not surprisingly, the Yankees aren't the only team that would like to bring in Hiroki Kuroda next year. MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that the Dodgers, particularly, would like a reunion with Mr. Kuroda. The Dodgers surely have the money to sign Hiro, even after taking on a lot in the infamous Red Sox trade that occurred in late August.
Hiroki is a very loyal player, as can be seen by his desire to ends his baseball career with his original pro team in Japan... the Hiroshima Toyo Carp, so news of the Dodgers being interested has me concerned. Kuroda has until the end of the week to accept or decline the qualifying offer made by the Yankees, which would be a raise of $3.3 million (Hiro made $10 million in 2012, and the qualifying offer was for $13.3 million) from last season.
