I am not the type of person that likes to make predictions. I am more interested in making "educated generalizations" that classify how we, as fans, might view a season. In the case of the Yankees, the most successful franchise in North American professional sports, I tend to see things through a demanding lens because of prior successes. When I watch my New York Jets fail year after year, I see things differently. You get the point.
I would like to point out a mistake I made so you know I am accountable for everything I say on this website. Earlier in the season, I wrote that Kuroda is a 37 year old National League pitcher and that he would not fare well in the power-hitting American League East.
I was wrong. Kuroda has been nothing short of spectacular lately and there is nothing I can say except that I still believe it was realistic for me to think he might struggle.
I am not going to fall into the same trap I made before, however. I am not predicting Kuroda will dominate for the rest of the year. I just hope he can keep it up because, let's face it, he's pretty old.
