edit: as I look, that is a speculative post. I got the official right here. first!ARLINGTON -- The Rangers have agreed to terms with Japanese right-hander Yu Darvish on a multiyear contract. A news conference is expected to be held on Wednesday at Rangers Ballpark.
The Rangers won negotiating rights with a $51.7 million bid that will now be paid to the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. Texas was able to come to an agreement with Darvish before a 5 p.m. ET Wednesday deadline.
The deal is for six years and for approximately $60 million.
Congrats. I am in a similar boat. Generally I don't think about it or if I do I am always late to the party. i think i have 1-2 minor somethings under my belt but nothing to brag about.
