It Wasn’t Time – It Was Timing

Hiroki will be in Pinstripes in 2012.   I figured him for Boston or NY.  So it was no surprise.

The question now becomes whether Ned did the right thing in signing Capuano and Harang instead of Kuroda.  I guess time will tell, but I think the fact that he decided to sign them instead of Hiroki was a not about time, but rather – timing!  I think Ned might have paid $10 mil for Hiroki, but at the time he signed Capuano and Harang, Hiroki was seeing a two-year deal in the vicinity of $14 mil  a year.

Lots of people think this was a bad deal (not signin g Kuroda and signing Harang and Capuano).  I really have no opinion yet – Time will tell, but timing was the reason.  It’s all about timing.

I am still haunted about Russell Martin, who was my favorite Dodger (behind Andy LaRoche).  What happened to him?  Better yet, what happened to LaRoche?  Boy, was I wrong about that one…

    I always liked Kuroda, but I personally feel he might be an energy risk at his age.

      Not much, just that immigrants suspected of being terrorists would be detained without trial until the War on Terrorism is finished.

      Sounds bogus to me.
