Well no one safe after this failure of a season. There also a chance they lose him anyway. Very dissatisfied and disappointed on how this season went down.

I don't consider Darvish an ace. Too inconsistent for me. I do believe he can become a solid #2 starter. I would offer him #2 money and if he can't live with that then let him go. They would probably be better off going ahead and trading him to make sure they get something for him before he becomes a free agent.

Bubba, I agree 100% with you that he isn't an Ace. He might flash the tools sometimes but the results haven't been there. I'm all for trading him. The Cubs are an interesting team. Corner OF prospects. Starting pitching.

Dodgers have some good young starters also. MLB network is saying the Astros would be a good fit for Darvish. Said it will come down to the owners wanting to make a deal with them.

I don't think the Astros should give up much for him .... he's a decent 3rd or 4th starter, but he's no ace ....

Darvish line for the night:

 

8IP 5H 3R 3ER 1BB 12SO

 

Gave up 3 solo HRs tonight, but looked good.

Cubs have a young catcher named Victor Caratini that I wouldn't mind getting in a trade. He is 23 and behind Wilson Contreras.

Dodgers are interested in Darvish and Kershaw left today's start after 2 innings. If he is out for a little bit, the Dodgers may want to make a move quick.

This may be a dumb question, but I don't keep up with it as close as some of y'all do. But when is the deadline?

My problem with Darvish has always been his inability to pitch with a lead. He as A+ stuff but never seems to put it all together and anytime his team gets him a lead, he lets off.

Reports are saying Kershaw will miss 4-6 weeks. Yankees, Dodgers, and Cubs all have shown interest in Darvish. Dodgers prospects are the most big league ready.

^ Yadier Alvarez 21yr old RHP #38 (top 100)

Alex Vergudo 21 yr old OF L/L #49

Walker Buehler 23 yr old RHP #7

 

Three of the names I've seen today being thrown around for Darvish.

Huge, huge grain of salt with this post. Guys not a verified member of Twitter, let alone a known reporter.

 

David Weiss' Twitter- Sources: #Dodgers and #Rangers nearing a deal that would send Yu Darvish to Los Angeles for multiple prospects. Should be done by end of day

Bleached Report having Houston as a possible destination for Yu. A big part is that Yu will have a lower price tag than Sonny Gray.

 

That is if Houston makes a move for a starter. Bleached Report isn't sold the Astros move for a starter with McHugh and Morton back and Keuchel returning soon.

While I'd like to have Yu (at a very small price) I'd much rather have a dependable lefty reliever. I don't really see any value in a starter that we can't afford next year. I'd pass

I guess you FORGOT how well McCullers was pitching going into the break. Everyone has a cold spell, he will snap back...
