What You Should be Watching Right Now

Posted By on Thu, Mar 5, 2009 at 1:57 PM

You may not know the name Yu Darvish, but let me tell you something, you will. 

Darvish is a young Japanese pitching phenom, the most dominant pitcher to come along in Japan since Daisuke Matsuzaka. In fact, there are at least a few people saying that Darvish may be even better than the man we all now know as Dice-K

Right now, ESPN2 is showing a replay of the Japan-China World Baseball Classic game that took place this morning. Just a recommendation, but you ought to check it out. I won't ruin the game for you by revealing the result, just in case you want to watch it. 

The game is on until 4 pm Central, followed by some sort of NASCAR atrocity. I don't know if there will be another replay after this; check it out if you have a moment. Mr. Darvish is, so far, everything I've heard and more. 

And just in case you're stuck at the office and have no access to a television, here's a bit of Yu to watch.
