    Cubs Cubs sign Yu Darvish to 6 years $126M

    Rosenthal:
    BREAKING: Yu Darvish to #Cubs, six year-deal in $150M range, sources tell The Athletic. Pending physical.

    It's up to $150M with incentives. Imagine getting paid that much after almost singlehandly blowing the World Series.

    Glad the Yankees didn't do that deal. That contract sucks.

    Cashman seems to view contracts and players very differently now but it does only seem like a matter of time until that happens again.

    This is only like 5 mill more per than Leake got. To get that extra 20 plus mill in incentives, he has to win cy youngs...hes good but that seems maybe unlikely

    Even though it doesn't feel like it now because I, like many Doyer fans, are still bitter over his World Series performance, losing Darvish hurts our rotation depth probably more than losing Greinke two years ago because the FO hasn't even tried to get reinforcements this time because of the stupid fucking luxury tax.

    I would have loved to have seen Yu in Milwaukee. Sure, it was probably a long shot but it would have been fun.
