Darvish Day.

I waited all day Tuesday, a bit under the weather, for the news.  But alas, there was no Mike Flanagan/Mike Edwards awesomeness in this year’s arbitration submissions.

So that wait is over, and there’s another one to turn our attention to today.

And there will probably be another one after that, but let’s not take our eyes off the ball.

Grab your queso and a day’s supply of your favorite beverage, put the dog in his Rangers Snuggie, and settle in.  It’s Darvish Day, with the final buzzer set to sound at 4:00 Central, eight hours from now.  The month-long game has drawn down to the final possession, with the outcome still on the line.

The game clock is now showing tenths of a second, and we rise to our feet.  Wolf Blitzer has his eye-black on, Dick Clark is bundled up, Prince Fielder is too nervous to touch his vegetarian Grand Slam.

Keep your email and Twitter feed nearby.

Big day.
