Call Me Sentimental, But I Don't Want Kuroda to Go

I don't know what it is, but I really like Hiroki Kuroda on this team and would prefer that he stay with the club. I've heard all of the arguments, and readily accept that they make more sense than my emotional underpinnings about what the Dodgers mean and who should be wearing our colors. But, when I read quotes like the one below I can't help but believe he needs to stay right here.

From AJ Cassavell at MLB:
"My honest feeling is that I can't fathom wearing another uniform than the Dodgers uniform right now," Kuroda said through a translator. "I never thought about it, and it's really hard to think."
With the MLB non-waiver Trade Deadline coming this Sunday decisions need to be made very quickly.
"I haven't really decided on anything, so I can't really give you an answer," Kuroda said. "Today I was wearing a Dodgers uniform, and I was playing here, to win, for this team. I have a few days before the Trade Deadline, so I'm going to think about it, I'm going to talk to my agent about it, and we'll go on from there."
All I can say is, please don't go!
