Yu Darvish News and Notes: December 13, 2011

by on Dec.13, 2011 @ 11:18 am, under MLB, NPB


Makes note of a Fox Sports article by Jon Morosi from 12/12 that mention five possible suitors: the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, Texas Rangers, and Washington Nationals.


Thinks around seven teams, including the Texas Rangers, Toronto Blues, and New York Yankees, could be interested.

Notes a Boston Globe article by Nick Cafardo from 12/11 that mentions the following quote from Mike Brown, Arizona Diamondbacks' scout and former pitching coach for the Nippon Ham Fighters: “He's the real deal. ... He's got great stuff, a great presence on the mound. He would definitely be a top pitcher here if he comes out."


Carter left a comment that mentions the following tweet by CBS Sports' Jon Heyman: "estimate of 1 mlb exec what it will take to win yu darvish: $112.5M (thats posting plus contract). im guessing a bit lower"

    No need to “credit” me for it sir, I couldn’t do anything without your blog.

    I wonder who gave that information to the US medias, the one that said Darvish was asking for 20m$. That’s just ridiculous to me, a complete lie, but if it was to be proven … I’d be highly disappointed by him.
