Commentary: What to do about Yu Darvish?

It seems like when it comes to the subject of Yu Darvish, I’m the lone wolf at CubsHQ. Everyone sees Darvish emerging from injury and rejoining the rotation in 2019, but I have my doubts. Full Story »

At the end of the day, Darvish dealt with an injury-plagued 2018, and that's all that there is to it right now.

A healthy Darvish would be huge for the Cubs during their vanishing Championship Window of time.

Even though his contract does seem inflated, it should've seemed inflated when Darvish (a pitcher who hasn't put together a season ERA under 3.00 since 2013) originally inked the deal.

But holding the contract against him in the wake of injury issues has gotten a little out of hand both in the Cubs' fan base and MLB media.

That's what fans do. They love their teams.

Injury-plagued seasons happen in baseball. If he's able to overcome his injury struggles and return to top form, the contract will definitely be worth it. Just look at what Justin Verlander has been able to do after struggling with injuries in recent years.

I don't think Cubs care about a Verlander season, just want him to try to pitch 150+ innings would be excellent after injury
