Local Cubs fan, John Casey, swears he is done bad mouthing Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish both in-person to his friends and on all social media platforms. That is of course until Darvish has another bad game.
“Listen, I’m a big enough person to admit when I was wrong,” said Casey of Roscoe Village. “When Darvish was struggling with control early in the season, I was mean to him, I said nasty things about him on twitter you name it.
One such tweet read, “If I had a gun with two bullets and was in a room with Hitler, bin Laden and Yu Darvish, I’d shoot Darvish twice.”
“But I swear it, on the lives of my children and my children’s children, that I will never, ever say another bad thing about Yu Darvish until he has another bad game. And you can take that to the bank.”
Darvish sparkled on Wednesday throwing six scoreless and walking none in the Cubs 5-2 victory over the Reds.
