Asked about friend and catcher Chris Gimenez, whom the Cubs signed in a precursor to the Darvish addition, Darvish responded that he likes Willson Contreras better. He shared the story of how he quickly called Dodgers manager Dave Roberts over the weekend and told him his new primary goal was to beat Los Angeles.

I'm sure there's a little lost in translation here, but man, those two lines read (comically) cold blooded.

I thought that was hilarious. Also, his line about calling Roberts to tell him his primary goal was to beat the Dodgers gave me a woody.

Seriously, Roberts can suck it.

 

I watched the presser, everyone laughed and cracked up at the Contreras thing..it was clearly tongue in cheek.  I'm pumped to see what this organization can do with an already very good pitcher, as I recall his line after being traded to LA were very good.

I'm already in love with him. He's actually been a favorite of mine since he entered the league.

 

The Cubs are reported to have finished 2nd for his services back before the 2012 season, correct? They finally get their man.

I hope the plan is to simply not fuck him up.

Elite? Yes, but is Darvish an ace? You bet your ass he is.

Just being a dick and rehashing an older discussion

These are the same morons who text me to complain during every poor Lester start, but strangely go silent during his great performances.


This. So fucking tired of getting texts about poor starts. Sometimes I feel like they don't understand the concept of a 162 game season.

Get ready for more of the same x100 during Darvish's starts. I may need to turn my phone off for 40% of this season's games.
