For you this morning:

Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports on Yoshinori Tateyama's former Nippon-Ham Fighters teammate Yu Darvish, and the posting process, and the likelihood that the Rangers could get in the mix for the 24-year-old should he be posted this winter as "widely believed". . . .

Ben Rogers of ESPN Dallas on Koji Uehara's former Team Japan teammate Darvish, who sits at 13-3, 1.56 this season for the Fighters, with 151 strikeouts and 21 walks (and 90 hits allowed, including three home runs) in 133 innings, and is now 71-25, 1.77 since 2007 . . . .

Jason Botts of AAA Buffalo in the Mets system on his 2008-2009 Fighters teammate Darvish, whose representation team includes noted American agent Arn Tellem:

Mid-90s power arm but would rather paint you on the black with sink and cut. Has great command, unbelievable composure, quiet and humble. Two nasty breaking pitches at different speeds and breaks. Fall off the table split. His stuff is top of the line. If he can be comfortable with the culture and the style of the game, maintain his confidence and command, he's gonna get big league hitters out. I wouldn't expect Roy Halladay. But after a year or two he could be a top of the line guy.

Here's how the posting system works.

Back now to our regularly scheduled divisional dogfight.
