Corné Hogeveen wrote a pretty damn good article in how the Mets should target the Cubs ace Yu Darvish and he had me sold. Unfortunately, the Padres are continuing their crazy off-season after trading for Snell and now Darvish. Not to mention San Diego also signing KBO star shortstop Ha-seong Kim to a multi-year deal.
Back to Yu, the right-hander will join a Padres team that is clearly pushing to win right now. Darvish would’ve filled in great as the Mets second starter behind ace Jacob deGrom.
The Cubs will receive Zach Davies, Reginald Preciado, Owen Caissie, Ismael Mena, and Yeison Santana.
