Yu Darvish


The excellence of Yu Darvish is not something many fans - or baseball players for that matter -  in Washington, D.C. have been able to appreciate in his two-plus seasons in the majors.


Coming off two blowout wins where they scored a combined 19 runs against the Rangers, one could have probably guessed all that would stop with Yu Darvish on the mound.


The Nationals have had no problem scoring runs against the Texas Rangers so far in their interleague series at Nats Park.


And so the time is near. Technically, the 2014 Major League Baseball season already began last weekend when the Dodgers twice beat the Diamondbacks in Australia.
