Hiroki Kuroda Will Not Be Traded

The Padres were negotiating a waiver trade with the Dodgers for pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, reported Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune, but the Dodgers pulled him back over the weekend.  That the Padres made the claim on Kuroda shows they were willing to take on his $2.33MM remaining salary.

Kuroda, 35, sports a 3.39 ERA, 7.3 K/9, and 2.2 BB/9 in 162 innings after last night's one-hit effort.  He'll be eligible for free agency after the season.  He projects as a Type B, though it's not clear whether his contract allows for an arbitration offer or if the Dodgers would consider it.

Almost threw a no-hitter last night, also…

That, and letting Manny go to the ChiSox… Coletti’s finally making some good decisions!

Too bad, he would have been the perfect fit for the Padres.

The Dodgers haven’t had a good owner since Peter O’Malley. That explains the baseball drought since the magic season of 1988.

The most consistent pitcher we’ve had over the last three years…….we put him on waivers, whatever, this regime is thankfully coming to an end. I can’t wait till next year and certainly hope Kuroda is part of 2011 !!

They put Lilly out on waivers too…could the Dodgers be signaling defeat any more strongly? Along with their new “coaching” method–criticizing players publicly in the LA Times rather than talking to them on the field–yeah, the Dodgers’ new approach works wonders–NOT

how to ruin your team…..inconsistant pitchers and pitching coach………terrible hitting along with a hitting coach that can’t motivate his hitters……this combination has fallen flat…….need some new people….
