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