Yu Darvish. Texas Rangers. $60 million. Sixty. million. dollars. If they have to make that up through our ticket purchases, at $9 a pop (we really only go on promotional half-price-ticket nights), it’s going to be a long, long haul.
But, really, the jokes about his name—all the many, many little puns and word plays—will be worth it.
The Rangers want Yu.
Yu did it!
Wash looks to Yu to pitch the seventh.
Who’s on first? Yu. What…?
(And maybe a Whirling Darvish or two, just for variety.)
That’s right. We’re going to have our own version of Who’s On First.
I’m not sure it’s worth that kind of money, but I am looking forward to it.
