Yu Darvish Pushes for a Six-Man Rotation

Yu Darvish and Masahiro Tanaka, old friends and rivals from both the Pacific League in Japan and the American League, met in the tunnel underneath Yankee Stadium on Monday afternoon and chatted. The men have much in common. Both were highly successful in Japan, and both converted that into success in Major League Baseball. The big difference now, though, is that while Darvish has...

Five Errors Not The Story As Yankees Drop Series Opener To Rangers

Five errors in one game is pretty embarrassing for a team, especially when three are charged to its starting pitcher.  It's so embarrassing that it's easy to forget that none of those errors led to a run. Yes, the Yankees gave up four runs to the Texas Rangers last night, and all four runs were earned.  In case you've been living under a rock, the Texas Rangers have...

Texas will keep its biggest stars, but markets strong for Rios, Soria

The Texas Rangers are conducting a sale of some premium players and are involved in discussions concerning very good players, such as re-emerging bullpen talent Joakim Soria and .300-hitting outfielder Alex Rios. But stars Yu Darvish and Adrian Beltre and very likely even cornerstone shortstop Elvis Andrus, too, won't be going anywhere. Teams have called about all three big...

Yu Darvish’s, Rangers solid outing in win over Jays

The problem that sunk the Rangers’ season showed up in the very first game of the year. The secret to making something of the second half of the season was very evident in the first game of the second half. It’s all about the starting pitching. On Friday, Yu Darvish pitched the Rangers into the seventh inning and — poof, just like that — the second eight-game losing streak...

Still plenty of reasons to watch the Rangers

The chances of the Texas Rangers making a run at anything other than mediocrity in the final 67 games of the season are slim. The gambling site Bovada has the Rangers chances of winning the World Series at 750-1. Texas isn't even listed by the site for American League West odds. But that doesn't mean there's not a lot at stake for Texas over the final two-plus months...

WATCH: Texas Rangers Pitcher Yu Darvish Throws Beautiful Euphus Pitch in All-Star Game

I've never heard of a euphus pitch till earlier this season when Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish threw one in a game. For those that don't know it is pretty much a pitch thrown super slow on purpose. You would think that might make the ball easier to hit, but that is not the case.Just watch Colorado Rockies shortstop troy Tulowitzki stare at one in the All-Star Game.@_MarcusD_...

Astros finally figure out Darvish, sweep Rangers into last place in AL West

It would have been a joke a year ago, the idea of the Astros sweeping the Rangers for the first time in a decade. Rangers ace Yu Darvish wouldn’t lose to the ‘Stros in the third game of the series, at home, after his team lost the first two. No chance he’d drop a game that would put the Astros ahead of the Rangers in mid-July, even if by one percentage point. All of it’s...

Rangers starter Yu Darvish hit by glancing blow in the head

Yes, the injury thing really is becoming surreal for the Texas Rangers. On Tuesday, RHP Yu Darvish was hit in the head by a line drive while throwing in the outfield.

Where Nonsense Makes Total Sense

Baseball flies in the face of logic. Hence, the Mets will score six in the first three innings off Yu Darvish. — Metstradamus (@Metstradamus) July 4, 2014 Or, baseball and logic can have an ice cream together and the Mets will lose 2-0 in four and a half hours. — Metstradamus (@Metstradamus) July 4, 2014 I was all over it.
