Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish has quickly made a name for himself with the organization and is quickly becoming a legend on the team. Maybe one day the Rangers will make a Darvish character to join the Dot Legends Race against Nolan Ryan, Jim Bowie and company.
Right, there are not many pitchers to compare him with. Looking back at some of the clips on MLB.com shows how great he is. Many of the clips are title with sayings such as strong start, outstanding performance, stellar start, near no-no, and near perfect.
With those last two, they’ll some day be no-hitter and perfect game. He’s been one pitch away several times and it is probably a safe bet to say he’ll eventually get a no-hitter one day and possibly a perfect game.
It might even seem unfair how easy Yu Darvish makes it look. Even when a pitch is thrown through the air and glides perfectly in the glove for a strike three call, it still seems at wasn’t good enough for him. That some how that pitch didn’t land exactly where he wanted it.
As fans, we tune in to every game and hang on every pitch from him. Again this season he has taken another game to the last out for a no-hitter, but Big Papi David Ortiz spoiled the moment.
Yu Darvish will continue to dazzle fans and probably even the his fellow teammates on the Texas Rangers. He’s only been with the Rangers for a short time, but he has had several great moments.
Here is a look back at 10 of those moments.
