It seems scouts from eight MLB teams (seven have been mentioned: Yankees, Mets, Braves, Rays, Rangers, Orioles, Twins) were at yesterday's game watching Yu Darvish pitch.

Said Hiroyuki Oya (Braves), "I see there's a lot of us here today."  He was at the game with a radar gun and a video camera.

Jim Colborn (Rangers) said before the game, "I'm really interested to see how well he pitches with all these scouts here today."  And after the game said, "He had good control and his delivery looked stable.  I'm sure all scouts were impressed by him today.  He probably fits into the 10th percentile of MLB players in terms of his abilities."
