Vargas is younger, cheaper, and better at this point. Napoli doesn't even fill any real need on the team. I agree with a post I read earlier; the idea that Darvish's decision is somehow contingent on Napoli being part of the organization seems odd and highly unlikely.The interest in him last offseason was at least understandable from a FO perspective. This year it's head scratching. I get it that he's "their guy," but right now it seems like its the only reason, and IMO not a good one, for bringing Napoli in.

Doesn't something have to happen this weekend?Do the Twins report tomorrow?Or is it Tuesday?

 

Either Darvish is going to sign with total chaos breaking out as all the teams needing pitching scramble to get one of the other top pitchers in the next couple days.Or one of the other BIG 3 says to hell with it and takes an offer...leading to the same scramble.

 

But it seems something has to happen by Monday morning.

Since I never for a moment thought we'd sign him, I'm glad it's over.I imagine the uninspiring Lynn will be heading our way.Or even less inspiring, Jaime Garcia.

Or he never got the offer he wanted from the Twins.

At least we have roster flexibility to extend Hughes and sign Tillman.

It's going to be ****ing hilarious when the Twins big FA splash is Fernando Rodney.

That perhaps is because that offer would have needed to include playing in a different city?

Do you think Berrios starts the opener or do we go with Gibby and his veteran presence?

Cobb or Lynn have always been more likely. Darvish played the waiting game to see if the Dodgers could deal Kemp or the Yanks could deal Ellsbury, he finally relented and signed with the next big market club and that was Chicago.
