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.
