Whenever his baseball career comes to an end, Cubs starter Yu Darvish probably could make a solid living as a comedian.
Sunday, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was named a 2019 NL Gold Glove Award winner. After the annoucement, Darvish pointed out the "big" part he played in Rizzo's stellar defensive campaign through an Instagram post:
You know how many times I had to run to cover first base for him to win the gold glove? I’m 60 feet away from first base, but him? He’s only 10 feet away. But congratulations! #cubs #everybodyin #Joking
He also told me If I buy Louis Vuitton backpack for him I don't need to run firstbase anymore.— ダルビッシュ有(Yu Darvish) (@faridyu) November 4, 2019
Darvish has been quite the jokester on social media recently. After a year-and-a-half, he clapped back at Justin Verlander, using the latter's own joke against him following a blunder the Astros starter made in the World Series.
All-Star staring pitcher? Check. Top-of-the-line comedian next?
