Leading up to the posting for Yu Darvish, it seemed like the Jays were being mentioned as the favorite but they came up short to the AL champs, the Texas Rangers. The auction was secret so we’ll never know how close they were but the Rangers got him for a record $51.7 million.
Alex Anthopoulos was one of two general managers to travel to Japan to look at Darvish and the Jays seemed interested in the pitcher for a while. It’s just too bad they didn’t go a little higher. Darvish would have been a nice addition to the Jays staff.
