(WSCR) As the Yu Darvish sweepstakes comes to a close, Kevin Goldstein joined The McNeil and Spiegel Show to discuss the Japanese-born pitcher.
Theo Epstein and the Cubs reportedly have placed a bid to bring the pitcher to Chicago.
“He’s a very, very good pitcher,” Goldstein said. “I mean, this is no joke. You can see plenty of guys putting up big numbers in Japan, but when you go out to scout them and talk to teams that have seen him, they’ll tell you it’s not going to work over here. That’s not the case with Darvish.”
