Wait, might the Rangers have won the Darvish bidding?

We’ve heard several reports -- or maybe one report repeated by a bunch of people -- that the Blue Jays are the high bidder for the Yu Darvish posting fee. But Buster Olney hears something else:

Most folks guessing/assuming Jays have won Darvish bidding. But just got off the phone with an AL exec who speculates smart $ is on Rangers.

I guess the key word is “speculates.” Those guys in the front offices are just as bored as we are all today, so they’re probably just speculatin’ on a hypothesis. I understand. I was this close to trying to top Gleeman’s epic ketchup post from last May. Viva the offseason.

Anyway, like we said earlier, we’ll hear who wins Darvish this evening.
