this is a forum that you frequent, and seem to have an opinion on everything, yet i dont see you calling out anybody for picking Hamels over Darvish here.
Searching your posts, the only thing you had to say about Hamels this spring just so happened to be in the Yu Darvish thread
you are now questioning.
He could very easily be better than Hamels but I wouldn't pay for the upside when we already know what Hamels can do. We know Darvish can strike out MLB hitters at a very high rate (2nd in the majors in K% by a wide margin), and we know that he had elite+ control in Japan, but he hasn't put it all together yet so I'd be hesitant. The upside is very tempting. Playing half his games in Arlington certainly makes me even more skeptical, though. at least he'll get a bunch of games against the Astros, heh.
