Rangers Win Rights to Darvish
The Rangers have won the rights to negotiate with Darvish with a record setting $51.7 million bid. Now that the Darvish sweepstakes are over, Yankee fans are left to wonder what's next. The Yankees weren't really in this sweepstake, and Cashman has preached patience in this hot stove season. Last season the Yankees got antsy and signed Rafael Soriano for no reason, so the idea of signing just to sign someone has really lost its appeal to the Yankee front office. Apparently, the Yankees are going to stay the course, and let some of their own prospects compete for starting spots in the rotation. This could very well be a rebuilding year, but it could pay out big for the future.
