Darvish not done and not guaranteed
Wednesday morning. The sun has come up but Yu Darvish and the Rangers have not reached an agreement yet.
At this moment, they still have 81/2 hours to get it done.
The word this morning is the Rangers optimism has waned a bit. The two sides negotiated late into the night and there are definitely still some differences that have cooled the Rangers optimism.
They still hope to get something done before the 4 p.m. deadline.
But remember Prince Fielder is still out there. There are those who would rather see the Rangers come away with Fielder rather than Darvish, and stay with the current rotation.
Of course there are some who think the Rangers should sign both. There are no deadlines with Fielder. The issue right now is Darvish and a long day ahead for many.
Will it get done? Probably. But the feeling at the Ballpark is it is no longer a sure thing.
