Reports that top Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish formally asked to be posted (the first step for him playing in MLB next season) are apparently overstated. Via NPB Tracker, an excellent source for information about the Japanese Leagues, Darvish wrote on his blog today:
Muttered as on Twitter
Temasen decided nothing! !
(^_^;) Does not have to decide not decided on anything but himself
This translation being via Google Translate of course. I don’t have much personal interest in this story, as although I would be excited to watch Darvish pitcher on this side of the Pacific, I don’t think the Mets should sign him and I don’t think he’d want to sign with the Mets. Plus, it sounds like Darvish hasn’t quite made up his mind yet.
But I don’t care about any of that. I really just wanted an excuse to give you all a link to the Google Translation of his blog, which is unintentionally hilarious.
