Farsa Darvish on Yu’s Status

Yu Darvish was in Fukuoka with his manager Hideki Kuriyama on November 19 to provide commentary for game 6 of the Nippon Series. Discussion about the posting system was strictly off limits with Yu, but that didn’t stop Darvish’s father Farsa from commenting. Here’s what Farsa had to say:

“Yu and I are talking about having a family meeting once the Nippon Series is over.”

“At this point it’s about 50-50.”

Farsa did a longer interview a few weeks ago, which is available in English over at YakyuBaka. The Nippon Series wraps up on November 20.

    Aaaaa. I wish somebody would protect him from the press. Like Okada-kantoku, he can be goaded into saying almost anything.

    Darvish’s divorce and alimony hasn’t been finalized yet. Then again, if he’s not gonna make that much more in the majors, it’s not going to affect things much.
