Who's Pitching for the Rangers?

Edgar: "Who's pitching for the Rangers tonight?"

Horace: "Yu."

Edgar: "I'm not pitching.  I'm just a fan of the Rangers."

Horace: "I know."

Edgar: "OK then, who's pitching then."

Horace: "Yu."

Edgar: "A wise guy, eh?

(insert more back forth here, a la the Abbott and Costello bit)

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: No pitcher from Japan since Nomo has even come close to living up to the expectations placed on them.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Yu Darvish is, according to most if not all the talking heads, far better than any pitcher ever to come over from Japan.  7 different pitches, 5 quality pitches.  If he's half as good as the hype he'll be good to pretty darn good.  If he lives up to the hype he might be the Rangers first 20 game winner since 1998.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Prince Fielder is off the market, signing with the Tigers.  Oh well.  It was nice to hope for another big off season splash by your Texas Rangers.
