Default Darvish

I live between Chicago and Milwaukee and the news in both cities reported the Cubs signed Darvish to keep the Brewers from doing so. For one thing, what the Cubs paid Darvish would have bankrupted the Brewers, and Darvish is no more the solution to the Brewers pitching needs than he is the Cubs. I think the post that suggested Darvish might be the solution for the Cubs next year is probably right. Six years from now when that contract is nearing its end...not so much. The Brewers were much better last season than anyone anticipated and Darvish may have made them better next season (remember C.C. Sebathia?) but they can't afford to be saddled with the salary when he starts to break down. This is what makes baseball the greatest game. The hot stove league can't be beat.
