Dodgers sign Kuroda

Given the high level of interest in Hiroki Kuroda both in the Royals front office and here at RR, I think this warrants a new diary entry.

Initial reports are that the Dodgers were able to snag Kuroda for three years at $36-40MM, which translates into around $12-13.5MM per year.  I'm guessing the Royals might've been willing to go to a fourth year for Kuroda, but unwilling to go beyond $11MM a year.

In any case, this pretty much means the Dodgers' rotation next year is going to be loaded if Jason Schmidt is healthy, with Schmidt, Brad Penny, Chad Billingsley, Derek Lowe, and now Hiroki Kuroda.

Suddenly, doesn't Carlos Silva look at least a little bit more attractive for the Royals? :)
