Kuroda Narrows Decision Between Yankees & Japan
Hiroki Kuroda has expressed his willingness to pitch on a one year contract in 2013 because he wants to leave his options open about returning to Japan before he retires. Kuroda has also expressed an interest in pitching at least one more season for Hiroshima Carp in the Japanese League. This eliminates the Dodgers essentially as competition for the Yankees but now Kuroda has expressed that he will either be a Carp or a Yankee in 2013. The money will definitely come from New York if that has any bearing on the decision but Kuroda's heart seems to be in Japan so we will just have to watch and see.
