Could Yu Darvish be on the way to the States?
Previously, Darvish had announced he was staying in Japan one more year, as Japan's best pitcher is going through divorce proceedings.
However, Darvish tweeted to the masses that "The situation has changed a little. Actually, a lot. Don't know what's going to happen." (Translation via Yakyubaka.com .)
What does this mean? Could it mean Darvish has changed his mind about heading to the states?
One has to think that Darvish may have gotten word of Cliff Lee jilting the Yankees... and perhaps it was made known to him that he could be in line for a major windfall should the Yankees end up bidding for his services via the posting system. Of course, if Darvish was to be posted, you'd have to expect the Rangers, plus even the Nationals, Angels and other clubs in the thick for his services.
Hang tight. If Darvish does indeed get posted, this Hot Stove season is far from over.
