Yu Darvish is now a member of the Texas Rangers, who will be paying him quite a hefty sum in hopes that he can recreate his mound magic here in The States. He is making his way towards Dallas as we speak to meet with the Metroplex media for the first time.
The photo below is of Yu preparing to board his plane from Narita, Japan. He is wearing an…interesting…shirt.

Can anyone offer an explanation for what that might be on Yu’s shirt…other than what most folks are probably going to think immediately?
Update: Thanks to a commenter, it appears that Yu’s shirt is not a sign that he wants to be the next Tim Lincecum. It is likely a Japanese maple leaf.
Well there we go. See? Thanks to Yu, we’re bridging cultural divides already.
