The silver lining to Yu Darvish's injury

Yu Darvish is probably going to require Tommy John surgery. As Jeff noted yesterday, this is a blow to the Rangers already slim playoff odds, and now our projections have them as perhaps the worst team in the American League.

Yu Darvish strikes out Adam LaRoche with 59 mph curveball

Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish has an arsenal of nasty pitches, which should probably make what he did Sunday illegal.
