The latest in the Hiroki Kuroda sweepstakes revolves around the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Jon Heyman and Jon Paul Morosi are both reporting that the Red Sox are still interested but still have a number of options, and Joel Sherman is reporting that while the Yankees are looking at a deal with Kuroda, it's now down to something around 1-year.

On top of that, Sherman raises a good question -- if Kuroda (or Edwin Jackson) is in, who's out in New York?
