Obsessive Yu Darvish Watch: Darvish Confirms 3.5 Hour Meeting with the Cubs

Chicago Cubs Rumors

Not only did top free agent starter Yu Darvish meet with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer yesterday, but he did so for three and a half hours without the help of an interpreter.

You can do the Google translate thing on those and get the gist, but something a little more useful on the translation front:

Cool to have meeting confirmed by Darvish, himself, and get a little bit of a window into the player. I’d imagine that was a challenging meeting for all sides, but I could see it being especially fruitful after they are all more comfortable with the way they’re communicating.

An interesting follow-up:

Is that another meeting with the Cubs, or with another team entirely? Or neither? Hopefully – for our obsessive urges – Darvish remains candid about sharing the particulars.

Last night’s update, if you missed it, is here.
