Yu Darvish seems to be settling in with his new team in LA, preparing to make his first start for the Dodgers on Friday night. Before he wears Dodger Blue on the mound for the first time though, Darvish thanked the fans of his former team in a full-page ad.
While it’s assuredly not the best game to go out on and that is gnawing on Darvish, hopefully Rangers fans are able to look past that final performance and fully appreciate his time with the team.
Some fans might be conditioned to expect such a catastrophic ninth inning (Colorado managed to win without recording a hit at all in the inning), some new details could shed light on why exactly Robles’ pitching performance went so awry.
After the game, Robles revealed that he couldn’t feel parts of his fingers in the ninth inning but made the decision to stay in the game. Sure, that might make it slightly hard to throw a ball, much less pitch well in any capacity.
The numb fingers weren’t the worst injury Robles experienced during the game, as he also fell awkwardly during the inning prior and “pinched his genitals,” which is just … uh … um … nope!
While that’s a pretty good explanation for a final inning that did not go according to plan at all, both of those things are probably painful enough that Robles could have asked Cheap Miami Dolphins Jerseys out of the game Cheap Lions Jerseys and gone to recuperate in the clubhouse.
