Heyman also posted an article that mentions Darvish's visit to the Dallas-Forth Worth area as being a "positive sign." A snip:
And Darvish's visit can only be seen as another positive sign in a negotiation that is sure to end with Darvish signing with the Rangers and taking over C.J. Wilson's role as Rangers ace. Negotiations are ongoing, and indications are that there's progress being made. They are about halfway through the 30-day negotiating window, but this may be one negotiation that doesn't go the limit.
"There's no reason to think this won't get done. There's no reason to think this has to go to the deadline, either,'' one high-ranking baseball person said.
Heyman figures Darvish will get a deal worth around $10 to 13 million over five or so years.
Sponichi also mentions that when Darvish visited Rangers Ballpark he also had a chance to meet a number of top officials, including Nolan Ryan and Ron Washington. And according to the Star Telegram's Jeff Wilson, he also got a tour of the stadium from Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton on Monday (1/2).
