Talks Between Yu Darvish And Rangers May Not Be Going So Well

+

Sponichi: Talks between Texas Rangers and Yu Darvish are apparently not going well by Gen on Jan.07, 2012 @ 12:29 pm, under MLB, NPB Yu Darvish began his training in Miyazaki on Friday. The media was pretty much shutout from the workouts — the Nippon Ham Fighters asked reporters to refrain from making contact with Darvish (for interviews and photos). Sponichi reports that talks between Darvish and the Texas Rangers are not going well — Darvish is looking for around 1.5B yen (or US$20M) a year at five years while the Rangers’ first offer may have been around 616M yen a year at six years. They also note that the two sides have yet to really start the negotiation process. In a separate article, Sponichi wonders if Darvish has refrained from making comments to the press because he wants to make sure he can easily slide back into pitching for the Nippon Ham Fighters in 2012. link: http://yakyubaka.com/2012/01/07/sponichi-talks-between-texas-rangers-and-yu-darvish-are-apparently-not-going-well/

Mike Napoli Live Interview on "Ben and Skin Show"

3

In this podcast, Napoli talks about his tumultuous off season being traded twice in a week and how he feared pirates more than sharks on a cruise. A sense of bitterness can be detected when Naps says he is looking forward to facing the Angels to "show them they shouldn't have traded me." Ben and Skin take a stab at accusing the Angels of being payroll bullies because the Rangers operate on half of the payroll budget that the Angels do. Mike corrects them and says no, the bullies are the Yankees and the Red Sox. (For podcast click on "Audio" under Rangers News Feed heading and then the Ben and Skin Show.)
