Game 131, Mariners at Rangers

Hisashi Iwakuma vs. Yu Darvish, 5:05pm A week after facing Masahiro Tanaka, Hisashi Iwakuma once again takes the hill opposite a superstar countryman. Yu Darvish missed most of the year recuperating from the Tommy John surgery that he had shortly before the 2015 season, and his absence is one reason why the Rangers have some strange pitching stats on the year. No team in the...

DrakftKings: C-Yu-Later-Arriegator

I know the lede may scream Millennial, but I wasn’t born in the 90’s, my cursive writing is on point and I don’t wear a beanie in 95 degree weather. I never use shorthand when texting or emailing, but it's tough to pass up on word play when Yu Darvish is part of the feature. Two weeks ago I gave you Tres Zurdos and this week I’m following up with Tres Diestros, or three...

Yu Darvish’s Night at the Plate

We are currently in the 20th year of regular-season interleague play. I’m not sure exactly how many repetitions it takes for an event to transition from exciting novelty to mundane part of the schedule, but somewhere along the way interleague play has done just that. We now accept that this is a world where things as bizarre as Marlins/Mariners series will occur from time to time...

WATCH: Yu Darvish crushes huge home run and his teammates love it

Who says the DH leads to more entertaining baseball? If the Rangers hadn’t been playing in Cincinnati on Wednesday, Yu Darvish would have been on the bench instead of in the batters box in the top of the fifth. Lucky for all of us (unless you’re a Reds fan, in which case you’re unlucky on multiple levels) Darvish was standing in, and facing a 1-2 count. Then, magic: Yu...

Yu Darvish hits first career home run (Video)

Coming into Wednesday’s game between the Rangers and Reds, Yu Darvish had just one extra base hit to his credit. He now has two and the second one was pretty impressive. Darvish came up to bat in the fifth inning and drove the fourth pitch he saw out of the ballpark for his first career home run. And it wasn’t a cheap one either. Take a look. Yuuuuuu cranked that…#PitchersWhoRake...
