    Pound-for-pound, the best Yankee acquisition in years. Needs to be re-signed.

    Re: 2012 Hiroki Kuroda performance thread

    The 37-year-old Kuroda wanted the no-hitter for the sake of the fans, but he was really focused on simply winning the game. He is only 11-8, despite an ERA that dipped to 3.06 after the shutout. He has gone at least seven scoreless innings six times this year. No one else in the majors has done that.

    In AL -
    8th in ERA
    8th in WHIP
    3rd in WAR

    Dude is setting himself up to get CY young votes. No I'm not saying he'll win or even be considered a candidate to win but he could pull in a number of votes and finish around 5th in the voting maybe.

    That is to say, he's pitching like an ace.

    Re: 2012 Hiroki Kuroda performance thread

    After walking a few at the start of the year, he's back in line with his walk rates of the last two years (2.2 per 9 innings) and while his K rate is down slightly, I'm sure that is simply due to the lack of pitchers at the plate.

    I've always loved watching Japanese players play because they very strongly emphasize fundamentals there. You can count on them to field, bunt, run the bases and pitch with a brain.

    Here, very early on you start teaching kids skills for scouts... how to hit for power, how to throw a hard fastball. Actually winning games takes a backseat to climbing prospect rankings.

    His previous five starts have all been low-scoring games with both teams scoring 4 runs or fewer.

    He's been their best pitcher this season.

    ERA under 3. Cray.

    Re: 2012 Hiroki Kuroda performance thread

    what's he doing is beyond impressive when you consider his age and how he's gone from the NL West to the AL East, not missing a beat in performance quality in doing so.

    Give him a midseason raise or something

    Too bad he didn't accept Cashman's two years offer.

    Just hope he can carry this through October because it would be nice to have a legitimate shutdown pair.

    Amazing season.

    I'm hoping he doesn't gag in October so I don't have to see the same dumb posters make the same dumb posts about postseason clutchtitude and how Asian pitchers are the suck.
