Chicago Cubs: Have some trust and faith
So let’s analyze this a bit and break it down in simple language for those that can’t follow this high literary fare. The Cubs have assembled one of the best pitching staffs in baseball. They know how to build, cultivate and produce winners (Kyle Schwarber, Javier Baez, Albert Almora, Kris Bryant, Willson Contreras, etc.). They think Darvish should rest and not pitch right now because it is in his and the team’s best interest.
You’ve got to trust this organization knows what it’s doing with its players. Maybe I’m wrong, but I think Darvish may just end up being the star of the season for the Cubs; we’ll all think Epstein is a genius (which he is); Darvish will be reborn and “Yu-San” will become a Chicago legend. I believe this scenario is more likely than Darvish ends up being a bust.
Get healed up. We’ll wait for you Yu-San… because we want to be champs again and you’re going to help get us there.
