Japanese Phenom, Yu Darvish update

The Nippon Ham Fighters of Japan have received all bids and have most likely chosen the highest bidder already. So what is the wait?? Well the Japanese ball club has until next Tuesday to reveal the winner of the “Yu Darvish Sweepstakes” If the Rangers happen to be the high bid on Yu, they will most likely forfeit any huge money deal like a Prince Fielder or such. But that doesn’t mean the Texas Rangers can’t unload some “potential” stars for a soon-to-be star like Gio Gonzalez of Oakland, possibly Mat Latos of San Diego, Matt Garza from the north side of Chi-town or former Ranger minor-leaguer Jon Danks.

The 6’5″ half Iranian, half Japanese superstar will soon be headed to the States… What jersey will he be wearing? Only the Nippon Ham Fighters know…


Here are the Darvish comments floating around the “Twitter-verse”:

@DKnobler  Danny Knobler of CBS Sports said, “Still don’t know what the number of winning bid for Darvish was, but sources say the Fighters were very excited by how high it was.”

@JonHeymanCBS  Jon Heyman of CBS Sports and the MLB Network said, “word is, Yankees entered only a modest bid for Darvish. Not likely to get. Indications are winning bid is sky-high.”

@JimBowdenESPNxm  Jim Bowden of ESPN hears, “Rangers, Blue Jays, Yankees & Cubs all submit bids for Yu Darvish. MLB expected to announce winning bid on Thursday Morning”
