It is Sunday and time for The Sunday Request.

The Giants lineup is thin enough that losing Pence for any length of time isn’t going to be fun. Man, this even year odd year thing is starting to get creepy! Let’s talk defending champs on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Odds To Win The MLB 2015 World Series + Best Bets

Yu Darvish has exceeded expectations in his 1st 2 seasons with the club.  Based on his 6 YRs/$56 MIL contract, he is seriously underpaid in the last four years of his contract.  Based on that value created, the team was able to sign Fielder and Choo.  Darvish finished 2nd in AL Cy Young Voting with a 2.83 ERA and a AL Leading 277 in 2013.  But he has a torn UCL and will probably have to go under the knife for Tommy John Surgery, i call this a season ender for the Rangers playoffs chances even before we hit the MLB opener on April.5th

Yu Darvish had exceeded expectations in his 1st 3 seasons with the club. Based on his 6 YRs/$56 MIL contract, he was considered seriously underpaid in the last three years of his contract. Since that value created cash for other deals, the team was able to sign Fielder and Choo last winter, but those two sustained massive injuries in 2014 (along with the RHP – and about 57 others lin 2014) in what was a losing season, Darvish finished 2nd in AL Cy Young Voting with a 2.83 ERA and an AL Leading 277 for the 2013 season, but he has a torn UCL now – and will probably have to go under the knife for Tommy John Surgery, I call this a season ender for the Rangers playoffs chances even before we hit the MLB opener on April.5th.  Oddsmakers are on board with what I have said, with the team tied for the 22nd worst odd to win it all this campaign.

With yesterday’s grim news on the 2015 season of Yu Darvish. I think it is safe to say the Rangers will have a tough campaign this year as well.

It was one thing having all of their top players coming back from injury already, but now you lose one of the true aces left in the American League.  This is a doomsday special.  I don’t think Yovani Gallardo will take on Darvish’s type of role and thrive.  If anything, the Rangers might be able to flip him later in the year.

Jon Daniels should not trade for another pitcher either.  This Division is the best in baseball, and if he were to do that, it would be bad money spent.  Hopefully Prince Fielder and Shin-soo Choo can have bounce back seasons for you, and at least the future will look up beyond 2015.
