The Yu Darvish Decision

UPDATE (10:35 p.m.): Announcement coming soon ... Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos plans to announce tonight his team won the bid for Japanese sensation Yu Darvish, according to my industry sources. I was told the Blue Jays would have an announcement around 9:30 p.m. (since delayed) that would blow away the great fans of Canada, who've been thrilled at the idea of Darvish signing with Toronto. Both parties have 30 days to agree on a contract. Early reports on the Blue Jays throwing down "a monster bid" were accurate. The bid was likely north of $50 million, a much higher figure than most in the Toronto organization expected. One of my sources: "How many tickets do you think we'll sell tomorrow? This thing will pay for itself."


Jays fans are flat-out going bananas right now. "Hope you are right. This could be a moment we look back on in a few years as the turning point in the franchise," tweeted @Anthopojays.

Let the situation sort itself out before you crucify the man. He has taken a great risk putting his neck on the line, and I dont think he did it for the page views.

First off he has no facts. He is saying someone backed him up on Twitter by saying "totally agree that Jays posted best bid despite what Jon Heyman tweeted". That is saying he thinks the Blue Jays won. THINKS. You don't post something without facts.
