PSA Comments of the Day 12/27/14: Farewell Kuroda

New, comment

As reported yesterday, Hiroki Kuroda will be heading back to Japan to pitch for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. He will be missed. Pitchers and catchers report in 54 days.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees found out yesterday that they have one less option available to them for their 2015 rotation. Hiroki Kuroda has decided to return to Japan to pitch for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp, ending a seven year run in the MLB. He pitched four years with the Dodgers and the remaining three years in the Bronx. He shall be missed.

Comments of the Day

Yep. Pretty much this.

Yeah, baseball isn't really losing money right now.

While some fans admired Kuroda's tenure with the Yankees, others did not.

This is what some PSAers thought about that.

Darth Mahbles has already found Kuroda's replacement. Let's just hope ? can give us some good outing in 2015.

Because I say "Bye Kuroda" like "My Sharona." As always, please link us your Song of the Day.

Now that Kuroda is out of the picture, as well as the country, it will be interesting to see what the Yankees do with the 2015 rotation. Relying on Chris Capuano and Bryan Mitchell is not the most comforting of thoughts.

Best of luck, HIROK
