I post this not because it is news, but because it is a good reminder that, in the offseason, one must read reporters breaking “news” closely to make sure it actually, you know, means a dang thing:
Source says Hiroki Kuroda, who turns 40 in February, is mulling over 3 options: another MLB season, a season in Japan, or retirement.

He needed a “source” to tell him that.
Not that this is not valuable. I mean, we now know that Kuroda is not planning a career in ice dancing, championship dressage or attempting to qualify for the lumberjack world championships (to be held in Heyward, Wisconsin on July 23-25, 2015).
Good to know.
