Report: Yanks Will Make Qualifying Offer To D-Rob, Not To Kuroda

There you go.  From one of the more reliable sources himself.  Feinsand posted a story on this a little over an hour ago, and given everything we knew or had read coming into today, there's little reason to suspect this is inaccurate.

I expect the team and D-Rob to work out a new 3 or 4-year deal before he ever hits the open market, and I would have expected it to happen regardless of whether they made him a QO.  Now that they appear to be passing on Kuroda, I think that means the first step in addressing next year's rotation will be to re-sign Brandon McCarthy.
