The acquisition of Yu Darvish will cost the Rangers just under $18 million per season, considering the six-year pact, the posting fee of $52 million, and the contract of $56 million. This pales in comparison to the average annual salaries in the recent deals for Zack Greinke, Justin Verlander, and Felix Hernandez, whose salaries will average over $25, and there’s an argument that Darvish is better than all three of these pitchers.

I'm done. I'll post $70 million to Japan and hope for the best...

The Yanks want him badly (gee, go figure) and some say the posting fee may go as high as $70 million. That probably puts him out of reach for us. Just once, I'd like to see us make a splash. I'm tired of the washed up has-beens, never wasses, journeymen retreads we constantly bring in, hoping we'll find a Miguel Gonzales.

This owner has not shown a real interest in investing in this team's future.
But he's got 2 sons.
