Hopefully we finally get a leak we can trust on this whole Yu Darvish saga, otherwise, according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, while it sounds like the bid will be accepted [note: shock!], we may be waiting three to four hours from the time of his 7:15 PM ET tweet to get the official announcement of which team will get a 30-day window to exclusively negotiate with Yu Darvish.
$50-million sure doesn’t get ya what it used to, does it?
And if my clock-reading is correct, and my insistence on round numbers doesn’t fuck it up, that would mean we’re looking at somewhere between 10 and 11 PM ET before we’ll know. Motherfucker, just tell us al-goddamned-ready!!
So… there’s that.
