Yu Darvish to be posted after 2011 season?

According to Sponichi, Yu Darvish will most likely be posted after the 2011 season.

An unnamed source close to Darvish apparently told reporters that too many things happened this year that kept Darvish from making the decision to post, most notably problems with his marital life.  But since things appear to be moving forward on that front (a divorce seems imminent), nothing will be holding Darvish back after the 2011 season.

The article also mentions the strengthening program Darvish is currently working on this off-season (increase from 90kg during the season to 103kg) as a sign that he may have already started preparing for his MLB career.
