Well, it's almost official that the Los Angeles Dodgers don't want Yu.

According to a report from Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, Yu Darvish has "no chance" of re-signing with the Dodgers this off-season.

The blue team from Los Angeles came within one game of winning its first World Series championship since 1988, but after another tough outing for Darvish in Game 7 the 29-year drought will continue for the Dodgers after the Astros claimed their first title in franchise history.

During both his appearances in the Fall Classic, Darvish threw a combined 3 1/3 innings with a ballooned ERA of 21.60, and no strikeouts.

Several reports indicated that Darvish was tipping his pitches by not moving his hand when throwing a fastball and a slight movement with any other pitch.

After the World Series, Darvish apologized to all Dodgers fans for his lackluster performance.

Several analysts see Darvish as the number 1 starter in the market this winter and could get a "pretty big" contract.

In 186 2/3 innings between the Dodgers and Texas Rangers in the regular season, Darvish posted a 3.86 ERA, and during the playoffs he started 4 games, pitched 14.2 innings, with a 2-2 record and a 6.14 ERA.
