I kinda 25% think this might be true and either his boss or the doctor told him to take that horsefeathers down hence the sudden and complete retraction

I tend to agree that something is going on. The swiftness and force of the denials was pretty telling.

And the retraction was so goofy after he was so adamant a few minutes before

I have a friend who knows Big Cat pretty well and asked him to text him to see what’s going on/what happened. I’ll see if I can get anything worth anything to post here. But agree that there might be something here and Carl jumped the gun or way over stepped on what his “source” gave him and was told to STFU by someone

Not to go all David here.... but Darvish’s second most recent follow on Twitter is Justin Grimm (and he only follows like 300 people and it’s not like Grimm is some great twitter personality, he hasn’t tweeted since July) and Strop recently started following Darvish..... he also liked the apology from Carl.

I think it's kind of hilarious Darvish keeps responding to sourced rumors about him on twitter.

Hoyer: Ok great, we have a framework agreement in place, we're just waiting for the medicals to come back.

I see Darvish getting more, and he's a better choice for any team.

I"m honestly not even sure Arrieta is getting 100M anymore based on how this market is shaping up. 4/100 is about the most I could see someone shelling out.

I am not sure Jake is going to get more than Darvish but i think Jake has not given signs of coming down from his asking price and Darvish may have. That is why the Cubs are after Darvish now IMO. I think Darvish is the better pitcher going forward so if it were me i sign Darvish.

I still haven't seen any indication that Darvish "may have" reduced his asking price. Darvish is obviously the better pitcher going forward, but if the numbers end up (not that they will) with Darvish @ 6 yrs/$160 mil. and Arrieta @ 4 yrs./$90 mil. it might be a tough decision.

He claimed that Darvish was signing with the Cubs because his source was the doctor who performed the team physical on him.

Great way to lose a source.
