Wow. It doesn't take long for a season to take a wrong turn. The Carp are 2 and 7 at this point and the hitting almost doesn't exist. With Eldred's knee surgery and the loss of Ka'aihue to the Washington Nationals, the Carp are pretty meek at the plate. Maru and Kikuchi have been a little sporadic so far but they will probably get going soon. Still, at 4 games back already, the Carp are in a pretty deep hole. Hope they can turn it around.

Kuroda is already off to a fast start in Hiroshima. He pitched really well the other day and it looks like he will be a valuable addition to the Carp staff. My only complaint so far this year is the loss of Ka'aihue to the Washington Nationals. Also, so far this spring, Ka'aihue hasn't been able to get a single hit in his 4 games. He really doesn't look like a major leaguer. He should have stayed where he was productive. But I guess he may return if he doesn't make the roster for Washington.
