No Yu for You

Darvish hasn’t signed a contract for 2011, so the case isn’t totally closed, but his latest comments are consistent with what he’s been saying for years. He has consistently disavowed any interest in playing in MLB, though this season he was less adamant about it, and admitted some contact with agents like Scott Boras and Arn Tellem.

Darvish pretty much has zero say in this matter unless he's threatens to sit out of baseball for a season or more. His Japanese team has complete control over where he plays (in Japan or in the US) until he becomes a FA in 2014. As long as they are willing to risk their big payday they won't make him available until 1 or 2 seasons before 2014.
