    Yu Darvish To Be Posted Today

    Jon Morosi

    Source confirms: Yu Darvish will be posted Thursday by the Nippon-Ham Fighters. @MLBONFOX
    At this time, Yu Darvish has decided to use the posting system.

    Because I wanted to relay this to the fans first, I am announcing this here.

    I greatly appreciate the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters Baseball Club.

    Because we’ve only just begun the posting process, I can’t talk about the details now.

    I wish to hold a press conference once everything is decided.

    This is from his personal blog.

    I hate the posting system with a passion, but I want the Yankees to sign Yu Darvish.

    I'm hoping this is the one big signing the Yanks make this off-season.

    PLEASE SIGN HIM!! I don't like our current rotation, I think Darvish is going to be a good pitcher and could potentially be our #2 starter.

    He'll walk out to the mound to the Soulja Boy anthem...

    From all accounts I have read, Yankees aren't seriously interested....

    I have a lot of mixed emotions about this. It would almost certainly result in Yankees eating more of AJ's contract and moving him. I'll wait and see what the posting is and what it takes to sign him before I judge the move or non move.

    Valentine's been managing against this guy for years and loves him. He's gonna try to get the Red Sox involved, but they might be reluctant after their Daisuke experience.

    We'll see, reports say that the Yankees scouts LOVE Darvish. But the media keeps saying that they won't because of Igawa, which would be STUPID because Darvish is NOTHING like Igawa. I just hope the Yankees don'tmiss on a opportunity to get a possible #2 starter. Our rotation as is isn't that good.

    I heard the Yankees have been talking about trading Burnett, willing to pay 8.5 mil of his contract but sources say it will take eating 16.5 mil of his contract to trade him. I personally would do that, the Yankees have tons of money and Burnett is trash and doesn't fit here.

    The beauty of the posting system is that for someone like the Yankees its just cash and doesnt count towards the luxary tax. They dont have to worry about trading prospects in this case as well. Just open up the piggy bank. I've seen Darvish in person. He's as good as advertised. Won't step in and be a number one, but can be a solid number 2 with a great chance to be number one after he gets the feel for MLB hitters.
