Kuroda Worried About His Stadium Opening Start

From Andrew Marchand:
Hiroki Kuroda has never played in Yankee Stadium. So when he throws the first home pitch for the Yankees a little after 1 p.m. on Friday, he will have more nerves than anything else.

"Rather than being excited, I'm more worried about how I'm going to perform," Kuroda said through his interpreter.


"Since I've never pitched at Yankee Stadium, I'm a little bit pre-occupied," Kuroda said. "I just have to do my best."
Kuroda added that he's "honored" to be getting the ball in the home opener.

Is it just me or do you also hate hearing Yankees admit they're worried?
