    I fell asleep during the first inning when he was pitching. Glad I missed the game, probably would have not been so happy.

    So much for the " he pitched poorly because of the cold weather " theory

    We were lucky he didn't give up a lot more runs

    3.56 era. 3-4 W-L. Not bad.

    Faced off against some touch starting pitchers, but that's his job as a No. 2.

    Most that I could complain about would be the lack of consistency from start to start.

    Someone should tell Felix Hernandez that kings wear crowns & the Yankees just snatched his!

    Wish he would have been the Mariners pitcher we acquired when we sent that decent DH there. And yes, even if we would have had to include the "killer B's".

    Felix's reign won't last long with a 90mph FB.

    Yeah his velocity was gross today, not sure what was going on with him.

    Great job by Kuroda though.

    It's been that way since ST for Felix. Prior to tonight 4 of his 7 GS were against Oakland & the Twins.

    Maybe Jack Z wants to trade him for Cano.

    Great job by Kuroda. Only thing I found strange was this quote about the home run pitch to Montero, which was purposely thrown on the outer half where Montero likes it:
    “It was really shocking,” Kuroda said. “I chose that pitch because I thought it was a great pitch for him not to hit a home run.”

    Do they not translate the scouting reports into Japanese?

    That pitch was way down and away. It was pretty much perfect- a slider right on the bottom corner of the strikezone at 85mph. Not exactly prime homerun pitch.

    He'd look even better if the defense behind him was more consistent. I'm guessing he didn't break down in tears when Nunez was sent down.

    It was a pretty good pitch. It didn't break enough, and it looks like Montero was sitting on it, but it was low and away.

    There just seems to be no in-between with Kuroda as he is either great or he is awful.

    He's not a fan of the colour grey it seems.
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Chewing glass would have been better than watching him tonight. He's Jekyl and Hyde way too often. One game good, one bad, etc., etc.

    Re: 2012 Hiroki Kuroda performance thread

    He started off rather slow last year and then went on to reel off 15 quality starts in his next 20 games. I think we'll see more consistency, though I don't expect him to be anything more than a middle-of-the-rotation guy, which is fine.

    I'll have to check his home road splits when I get back home. I think all his bad performances have come away from yankee stadium

    I think the onus should be on you to defend your assertion, but I assume you're basing your "suck" label on Kuroda's ERA.

    Does Nova suck? Do Tim Lincecum, Matt Moore, Adam Wainwright, Yovani Gallardo, Mat Latos, and Max Scherzer all suck?
