    Re: 2013 Hiroki Kuroda Performance Thread

    I haven't read the whole thread, so don't know if I am repeating something, but last night's performance was also remarkable because Kuroda pitched a complete game and gave up no walks. Nolan Ryan who had a very long career, and pitched seven no-hitters, only accomplished that feat four times.

    I'll just leave this here.
    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.

    This is one of the specific pitches that made my eyes pop out of my head. I don't recall seeing anything like this kind of movement from him before. Amazing.

    Looks almost like a screwball. Wonder if anyone will ever throw a true screwball again.

    Solid might be damning with faint praise, no? This production on back-to-back one year deals under market value is beyond solid.

    It's gotten to a point where I'm excited for every one of his starts.
    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.

    It pains me that he wasn't around with the '04-09 offense this team trotted out.

    Re: 2013 Hiroki Kuroda Performance Thread

    With that performance his ERA has dropped down to 2.35. Opponents are only hitting .205 against him & his WHIP is exactly 1.00. He's yet to give up a home run.

    He is at the top of his game, after a shaky beginning of the year for him.

    I think it's easy to say that the Yankees have 2, maybe 3 (depends on how Pettitte continues throughout the year) ace-caliber pitchers this year.
