    Re: Yu Darvish playoff choker

    Darvish also has a lot more miles on his arm than Arrieta lifetime for sure because of the way Japan abuses young pitchers.

      Of course, Arrieta may be 31 but he's in great shape and has low mileage on his arm for a 31 year old. Letting him walk would be a very bad decision, he's also a great big game pitcher. Don't have a World Series without him and I don't see how you justify letting him walk unless you're going to trade for an elite starter and then sign another one.

        I'm letting him walk before I sign him to a crazy 5-6 year deal.

          I'd give him a similar deal to Lester, maybe one year less, slightly more money per. 2018-2019-2020 is a window the Cubs have, so the important part of the deal is how you expect Arrieta to pitch those 3 years.

            I would too except we know who his agent is.

              Crazy to think this team could still be playing if they get Verlander, which was obviously the dumber move, rather than Quintana.

                Javy, just think about how the Tigers took the Friedman deal over Theo's! What a fortunate trade!

                  Darvish having himself a game here! He has nothing at all. Flipping coins out there

                    If Astros win, Yu Darvish should be Astros’ World Series MVP.

                      Hate to say it here, but the b.p. Pitchers at the derby offer more than Darvish

                          Don’t have much vested interest in this game, but if I was a dodgers fan I’d be pissed Kershaw didn’t start and try to go 4-5 innings and then go to morrow and Jansen and whoever else.
