    Ridiculous

    This is getting out of control, I hope this dies out... or the White Sox get him:

    It IS out of control, but on a side note, I really like their jerseys. Makes it interesting for hitters switching from a lefty to a righty in the middle of the game....

    There is a 99% chance this guy ends up in New York, Boston, or some where in L.A. A small chance he ends up in the Pirate organization too. haha

    It also depends how well he hits. If he can't hit a beach ball with a tennis racket he will definitely go to American League.

    Darvish pitches for the Nippon Ham FIGHTERS, not the Nippon HAM FIGHTERS.
    That sucks, the Ham Fighters would be way cooler.

    Not true as pitchers aren't being paid to hit but to pitch. I'm sure most NL teams are willing to forgive a pitcher for not being able to hit if they have a sub-3.00 ERA and a WHIP in the neighborhood of 1.5.

    You're right that NL teams won't care if he can hit, but there's no way he's pulling a sub 3.00 ERA with a 1.50 WHIP.
