    What is your point? Chamberlain never relied on his breaking pitches while with the Yankees and has actually found success utilizing them with the Tigers.

    And who is this magic 3.0-3.5 WAR young pitcher the Yankees can just slot into the rotation for less than $18MM AAV?

    Sometimes I just do not think fans appreciate how fast and intense the modern game of baseball is.

    To put it bluntly; you have no clue what you are talking about.


    Yes, because baseball in the 1970s was the same game they are playing today. :rolleyes:

    Thump, you and a couple of other posters are currently eating crow on Kuroda.

    Your goal post shifting is not going to change that you were dead wrong about his performance.
