On Monday night, Chicago Cubs pitcher ​Yu Darvish took home his first win since May 20th, 2018 against the Miami Marlins in what was admittedly far from a perfect start. Darvish issued 4 walks and hit one batter across 5.2 innings pitched, yet only allowed 2 runs, lowering his ERA to 6.11.

​​When Darvish was asked why he walked none in his previous start against the Pittsburgh Pirates and then 4 against the Marlins, his response was concise: "I'm Yu Darvish"

It's quite hard to argue with that kind of logic. However, Darvish was all over the place with his pitch location on Monday night, including a 99 mph fastball that hurt not only Lewis Brinson, but the catcher and umpire as well. 


Perhaps he should work on cleaning up his command before his next start against the ​Arizona Diamondbacks before he harms anyone else. In the meantime, he'll surely be content with the W.
