Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish officially signed to a six-year, $60 million deal with the Texas Rangers on Wednesday. Darvish, perhaps the most highly-touted player to ever come out of Japan, will be counted on to help shore up the Rangers' pitching staff following the loss of their former No. 1 starter C.J. Wilson, who signed with the Angels in December.
The signing also gave editors and headline writers across the country the opportunity to come up with their own witty play on words based off of Darvish's first name. ("Yu" is like "you," you see.) They haven't had this much fun since Hope Solo's run last summer.
