Mets Interested In Hiroki Kuroda

Mark Hale at The New York Post writes about the Mets interest in Japanese righty Kuroda:

The Mets have legitimate interest in Kuroda, and according to one person with knowledge of the team's thinking, the Mets advanced to Round 2 of the bidding process. The Mets didn't submit an official offer for Kuroda, but indicated what they would consider spending, a Round 1 semi-proposal that moved them into Round 2.

Kuroda now could become an interesting option for the Mets, who view him as a middle-of-the-rotation innings-eater. He would slot in behind Pedro Martinez, Oliver Perez, John Maine and perhaps even Orlando Hernandez. But they are not the only team who is interested.
