    Report: Kuroda deciding between Yankees and Japan for 2013

    Via David Lennon: Hiroki Kuroda “has told friends” that he’ll pitch for either the Yankees or the Hiroshima Carp next season, but he hasn’t made a decision yet.

    New York did make the right-hander a qualifying offer, but they would not get draft pick compensation if he signed in Japan.

    Kuroda, 37, spent eleven years with the Carp before coming over to MLB in 2008. He’s reportedly cool with signing another one-year deal in part because it affords him the flexibility to return to Japan at some point. These reports that cite “friends” are always sketchy though, so take this with a huge grain of salt. If Kuroda decides not to re-sign with the Yankees and instead returns to the Carp, it won’t be for money reasons. That much is certain.

    This is good. He's not playing the field a la Andy.

    It's either us or home.

    he's already said that pitching isn't "fun" for him, and more of just doing his job. i wouldn't be remotely surprised if he went back home

    Hiroki Kuroda was the Yankees most consistent pitcher last year, for sure.

    It would be a huge break in the right direction, if he returned. The Yankees benefited all season long from his consistency.

    Kuroda is too expensive. They can't sign both Andy and him. Best to just stick with Andy, CC, Hughes, Nova, and Phelps.

    The Carp are kind of the Royals of the Japan league.

    I would gladly welcome Kuroda back. Hopefully he returns for another year.
