  1. Didn’t the Rangers lose? Isn’t Yu Darvish signed to them for the next however many years? Why is his name being discussed during the postseason?

  3. Could you explain that Green grid a little please? Green is more? View is pitcher or catcher? Thanks.

  4. Well, I for one appreciated the article. In my APBA league I’ll have a choice of Darvish / Bundy / Harvey / Miller early in the 1st round, and I get the player for his career. I’m not sure which was to go right now, so articles like this are helpful.

    Thank you, Jack.

  5. Yeah, that’s right, and the view is from the catcher’s perspective. Editing the post to reflect. Thanks.

  6. I agree. Can we please stop having articles explaining significant changes in performance of interesting star players? If I wanted to read something like that, I could just go to Fangraphs.

  8. Really awkward opening paragraph. The second sentence isn’t even a sentence. I usually hate it when people point out minor grammar things but it’s just confusing to read.

  11. yeah took me a a moment but its thrle catchers view. green is more frequency. interesting and angering for everyone who is fa fan of the 29 teams that made token or no bids for a mid 20s starter with high octane stuff and decent and improving command.

  12. Yes, but it’s not like this subject is new:

    “The obvious follow-up question is: so what’s changed? Comparing Darvish’s most recent six starts to his previous 22 starts, he’s nearly tripled the use of his cutter. He’s thrown fewer sliders and splitters. He’s been caught by Geovany Soto instead of Mike Napoli and Yorvit Torrealba, and Soto has now basically been designated as Darvish’s personal catcher.”

    That was written less than 3 weeks ago, just as Yu was finishing a dominant stretch and heading into what we all thought would be a playoff run. So this one just feels rehashed, while he is no longer a relevant/newsworthy player at the present/near future.
