As much as I love Kuroda, I wouldn't be all that sad if he signs with the Dodgers. Between Soriano, Swisher and Kuroda, those could be three sandwich-round picks, in addition to a regular first-rounder. That's a great chance to add some high-level talent to the organization. And I think that Nolasco could replace Kuroda for one year, and wouldn't cost us much of anything prospect-wise.
High level talent that will get us more Michael Pineda's of the world.....
$153 million doesn't go as far as it used to.
