It's strange to consider this, especially amid all the Derek Jeter hoopla, but Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda's future is uncertain. This could be one of the final starts of his superb career, which dates back to the 1997 season, an 18-year stint split with the Yankees, Dodgers, and the Hiroshima Carp. Thus, I'm going to be bold and suggest the Yankees win all of his remaining starts so that his major league career does not end unjustly under .500 (he is currently 78-79).
Just win, Yankees. Do it for #HIROK.
