Yankees May Not Be Willing to Spend Big on Darvish!/Joelsherman1/status/127143062131572736

Given the veritable bevy of issues with a pitcher transitioning from Nippon Professional Baseball to Major League Baseball, I suppose I cannot fault the Yankees brass for some hesitancy in throwing money at Darvish and the Nippon Ham Fighters. However, the fact that the Igawa signing was an exercise in idiocy from the get-go should not in and of itself hinder the team's efforts going forward. I wish that someone would step-up and admit that Igawa was not a terribly promising import from the beginning, as opposed to showcasing his struggles as a reason to avoid Japanese pitchers on the whole.
