It'd be cool if Chen and Darvish pitched against each other at some point this season.

IIRC, Chen signed a three year deal. Is he entitled to free agency after that, or does he remain under team control and eligible for arbitration after this contract runs out?

I think Darvish will end up pretty good but will fall short of the hype due to pitch count issues. Regardless of what the Ranger's say, they are keeping track and won't let him hit 120 like he used to do in Japan.

Chens been better so far (and way cheaper) but id be pleasantly shocked if that held up for the rest of this year and beyond. I think Chen's value took a hit because of his injuries, whereas Darvish was so dominant and flawless that he was perceived as having a higher upside and much higher floor. I think the high floor was extremely important in the amount of money the rangers laid our for him.
Duquette gave Wada more per year than Chen, so hopefully he can figure it out and contribute, too.
Also, how cool would it be if Chen and Darvirsh were competing for ROY at the end of the year?

He'll be interesting to follow over the course of the year, but if he keeps putting runners on at such a ridiculous clip, he's going to get lit up sooner or later.
