The only reason Jake is in any dicussion is because he would get less years and money than Darvish. If the years and money are the same, either Jake's agent needs a big raise or Yu's agent needs to be fired.

Easily Darvish.


And when you add in the likely draft pick from Jake signing elsewhere, it’s even more of a no brainer.

This question/prosposal has been brought up in different forms before in here but Darvish in that scenario I’d say 95% of the people who’ve voiced their opinion would pick Darvish (and 100% of the smart poster on here would pick him). I think Darvish is the clear option in just about any scenario short of Jake’s market turning in to a 1 year deal or Darvish approaching $30 million in aav (or whatever the FO has determined is the AAV they won’t touch or if they go to it, it affects future plans).

This is way over the top. Darvish is the clear preference, but Jake at 1 year is ridiculous. The draft pick is the biggest hindrance to jakes market. Even without it Yu may be the favorite, but not at, say, 3 years vs 5.

But the answer to the original question is Darvish.

I’m thinking eventually Darvish signs for 5/120-150. Arrieta’s going to look for that 6th year and someone like Minnesota or Seattle will eventually give it up.

Someone on Twitter that tweets like they have a direct connection to the FO. I just ignored them at first but then some other Cubs fans/bloggers I follow interact with them like they were credible-ish.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I've started pretending that Derwood's posts are just from a really, really, REALLY long Jim Anchower article, and it works pretty great.

and even if it's completely made up it's boring af this time of year and it's something to talk about. you gauge the credibility of any and all communication you receive. that's on the person receiving the message.

plus, SOMETIMES, it's legit someone that has some way of inside info so it's fun imo (see: pearl jam poster guy w/ Lester)

It does put a fine point on how useless a guy like Heyman is, when anyone with zero information can sound just as "official"
