Hiroki Kuroda Says "Sayonara" To Evil Empire

Hiroki Kuroda is escaping the Bronx and heading home to Japan to pitch for the Hiroshima Carp. The nearly forty-year old starter could have pitched another year for The Bronx Embalmers, but decided to take a better deal in his home country. This leaves The Pinstriped Posers in a pickle in their rotation—although they did recently sign Nathan Eovaldi. While they were not counting on Kuroda's return, he would have been a welcome bulwark among a group of other aged, ailing pitching options. This news is sweet music to our ears, as Yankee fortunes drop further and further in the AL East.
