Today, Hiroki Kuroda informed the Dodgers that he would exercise his no trade clause in his contract and remain a Dodger for the remainder of the season. I respect Kuroda. Players like him in this age of time are rare. Rather than going and playing for a contender he does the unthinkable and remains loyal to the Dodgers. It was a very unselfish decision of his. He could have gone and play for a contender maybe pitched in the world series. But, he decided to wing it for the whole year. I would assume that he put his family needs instead of his, given that his family has settled in to Lost Angels. We need more players of his caliber. Kuroda’s 6-13 record is deceiving. He could have been at least 15-4 if the Dodgers would have provided him with run support. Anyways, thank you kuroda for reminding us that its not all about the glory and sometimes our values are more important.
