Yu Darvish is playing games with baseball fans all over the country. He’s spent his offseason being offered Money to play baseball, and he’s been trolling people on his twitter account. He seems to be having fun with all of this, but he’s the only one enjoying it. 14 days away from the first pitcher and catcher workout, and he’s still a free agent. So what’s been going on?

Darvish has been waiting for the Dodgers to make an offer. They need to make a move or two in order to clear up space to afford him, and stay under the penalty. Which they said they absolutely did not want to go over. Even to the extent of trading Yasmani Grandal or Logan Forsythe, who played pretty big roles with the Dodgers in 2017.

At this point the Cubs are still front runners despite Darvish waiting for the Dodgers. He has said he wants to go back to LA, but the timing and the money situation might not be right for that to happen. Which is something we need to take advantage of, and possibly bump up our offer a little bit to make him sign before the Dodgers can do anything.

Another team heavily involved in the rumors is the Texas Rangers. They have also been called the frontrunners at one point, but they said they were “unlikely” to make any moves at the top of the free-agent pitching market. Which once again, is a positive for the Cubs.

Then there’s also the Brew Crew making their way into the conversation. I would rule them out after trading for Christian Yelich and signing Lorenzo Cain for 5 years. But anything can happen..

I also still don’t feel like the Cubs NEED to get Darvish to win it all, but he would certainly help.. Go Cubs Go!!
