Since we're already looking forward to next Winter on January 6th, here's some news that may affect it. Rumors have mounted more each year about when Darvish will come to the US, and there was an earlier report that he only stayed this year because of personal problems. He's earning about $6 million in Japan this year and would likely command about double from an MLB team. Given that the Angels will likely have 2 rotation spots open for 2012 and the relatively shallow depth of available FA's, he'd certainly warrant consideration. Maybe we could squeeze him in after Mathis' extension.
