The Texas Rangers routed the field in the bidding for Yu Darvish, as it turns out.
Indications are Texas' winning bid of $51.7 million was easily the highest bid. While stories have suggested that the Toronto Blue Jays bid was $50 million, meaning less than $2 million separated them and Texas, there is no evidence to support these claims.
There has been a lot of misinformation out there regarding the Darvish post (and especially as it relates to Toronto), and it's no surprise sice the posting process is secretive and the interest is extremely high. Toronto was abuzz over early erroneous reports that they won the bid.
The Blue Jays' exact bid isn't known, but word is that Texas easily won. The Yankees' bid is believed to have been somewehere in the range of $15-to-17 million but isn't exactly know, either. Reports suggested the Cubs also bid, and perhaps other teams did, too.
But no one bid like Texas.
