Will Yu Darvish be posted this winter

Postby Koko B Ware » Thu Jul 31, 2008 10:55 am

Curious if anyone thinks yu darvish will be posted this offseason? I have read the yankees will pursue him, but the opening bid to talk to him may be as high as 70 million....His manager in japan said if he asked to be posted he wouldn't stand in his way. Just curious what people's thoughts on him being posted are? Would like to snag him in my keeper league, but don't want to waste a roster spot if there isn't a good chance of him coming over next year. Thanks

I think he has 4-5 yrs before he becomes a japanese FA which eliminates the posting price that MLB teams would pay to the Japanese team. I think the Japanese team will hang onto him for 1-3 more years and then post him as he gets closer to FA. But I don't follow the japanese players too much.

No, very unlikely.

Wish I still had the article, but I've read he actually wants to stay in Japan. It was a pretty interesting article as well. Went into how the MLB is not good for baseball in Japan, etc. etc.
Good luck, feel free to PM me

Definitely not this off-season, but likely in couple years down the road.

All indications are that he has no plans to leave Japan at all. He has not given any indication so far of him wanting to come to the States at all.
