I honestly think that Minnesota is Darvish's 2nd choice at best. Behind LA and maybe even Chicago and Texas. I just don't get the inclination that he wants to be in Minnesota. Which is fine. Unless the real sticking point is he's holding out for the 6th year, which is his right. Maybe the Twins can make the 6th year a vesting/player/team option.
What I'm really saying is I just want him to sign somewhere, anywhere. Preferably with the Twins. Just to get the logjam of free agents rolling.
