In exactly one week, we will know the fate of the Texas Rangers going forward. It may sound dramatic, but it’s true.
Next Wednesday (Jan. 18th) Yu Darvish will either be a Ranger or he won’t. There is no middle ground. There are no do-overs.
It’s being reported by some that Prince Fielder may be hanging back in his own contract negotiations, waiting to see whether the Rangers will have any room in their budget a week from now.
If Yu isn’t signed, Fielder could be the first domino to fall.
When this process began, most people seemed to think that a deal wouldn’t take long to put together. Now a lot of those same people expect it to go down to the wire.
But, gun to my head, I wager that Yu gets himself a deal.
If it doesn’t go down, expect everyone to be surprised. For now, though, we play the waiting game.
Or Hungry Hungry Hippos. That’s a much better game.
Below, I have reintroduced the Yu Darvish song title parody poll from last week. Feel free to vote again.
