Hiroki Kuroda Rumors: Wednesday

UPDATE, 12-6-07 at 1:08am: Geoff Baker reads between the lines, and thinks the Mariners may have added that fourth year to their offer for Kuroda.

UPDATE, 12-5-07 at 5:59pm: Per Scott Lauber, the Phils are out on Kuroda.

UPDATE, 12-5-07 at 10:46am: Todd Zolecki says Kuroda will visit the D’Backs, Mariners, and Dodgers next week, so it’s fair to assume those are three of the four finalists.

FROM 12-5-07 at 9:41am:

Yesterday morning it was reported that the Mets had reached "Round 2" of the bidding for free agent Hiroki Kuroda.  At that time 8-10 teams were in on him.

Now, the Kuroda derby is down to four finalists and the Mets aren’t one of them. David Lennon agrees, saying the Mets were "drifting to the back of the pack" for Kuroda.

My guess on the four finalists: Mariners, Dodgers, Diamondbacks, and Royals.
