SURPRISE, Ariz. -- If Yu Darvish is feeling any pressure after leading the majors in strikeouts last season, it isnt showing. The Texas Rangers ace was even in a joking mood Tuesday at spring training. Darvish wisecracked that the New York Yankees might have paid too much for fellow Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka by giving him a seven-year, $155 million contract on top of a $20 million posting fee to the Rakuten Golden Eagles. The deal made Darvish No. 2 when it comes to Japanese players in the majors: He has a six-year, $56 million deal signed before the 2012 season after the Rangers paid $51.7 million to Hokkaido for the right to negotiate with him. "I dont know the details of the posting system, but I think the Yankees gave him a little bit too much," Darvish said with a chuckle through his interpreter during his first spring training session with reporters. Even before the session was done, the remark was all over social media and the Rangers released a statement to make sure everyone knew Darvish was kidding. "I am sorry if anyone took my comment seriously about Masahiro Tanaka at the press conference," Darvish said in the statement. "I assumed by the reaction in the room that everyone knew I was joking." The 27-year-old Darvish could opt out of his contact after five years if he wins a Cy Young Award and potentially get a contract exceeding that of Tanaka. He came close last year, finishing second to Max Scherzer in the balloting after leading the majors with 277 strikeouts -- the most since Randy Johnson struck out 290 in 2004 with Arizona. Darvish, who manager Ron Washington has already named the opening day starter, was 13-9 with a 2.83 ERA in 32 starts last season. "If we score him runs, he might win 35 games and hes only going to get 32 starts," Washington said. Darvish lost four 1-0 decisions, the first pitcher to do that in a season since Orel Hershiser with the 1989 Dodgers. "Never once did he ever make any whimpers of, Boy it sure would be nice to get some runs, never once," pitching coach Mike Maddux said. "Thats the kind of teammate he is. Hes going to go out and do the best he can and wants everyone else to the best they can." The Rangers averaged 3.08 runs per game in Darvishs final 23 starts. "The game is something you cant control, so you cant be pessimistic or optimistic," Darvish said. "The main thing is to keep yourself healthy. If youre healthy enough, I think numbers are going to follow. The outcome is something that is a result of having a healthy season. I cant really control what goes on in a game situation." Darvish went on the 15-day disabled list last July with a right shoulder strain and was bothered by back nerve irritation in September. Darvish said he shied away from heavy lifting during the off-season to help the back. His lack of fastball command, which gets his pitch count up early, has been a concern. "Youll probably see during the course of the season how much I have improved," Darvish said. "Im more relaxed and I can do many things at my own pace and Im aware of whats going on and people know me better than in the past." An improved Darvish could equate to a blockbuster contract. No joke. Notes: RHP Tanner Scheppers (back spasms) and LHP Matt Harrison (stiff neck) were held out of throwing Tuesday. .2B Jurickson Profars right shoulder is still stiff, preventing him from throwing. He likely will be limited to DH duties until mid-March for exhibition games. Cheap Jerseys .

The Formula One circus has arrived in town and on this Thursday afternoon the teams crew members are setting up their equipment in the pit lane ahead of the three day race weekend. BEREA, Ohio -- Browns cornerback Joe Haden hopes to deliver Rex Ryan a lump of coal on Sunday. Haden returned to practice Friday after missing two days with a bruised hip and said he may play in Sundays game against the New York Jets. On a conference call earlier this week, Ryan, the Jets loquacious coach, praised the talented Haden as a "rare guy" and joked that one of the items on his Christmas list was for the cornerback to miss this weeks game. "Man, Im Bad Santa," Haden cracked. Haden was limited to riding a stationary bike on Thursday, but he was back on the field Friday and looked to be himself while doing sprints and drills during the portion of practice open to reporters. Haden was injured last week against Chicago when he was hit in the hip by Chicago tackle Jermon Bushrods knee while trying to make a tackle on a running play. Haden, arguably Clevelands best defensive player, will likely be a game-time decision. Of course, he wants to play. "If it was up to me, Im always going to ball," he said. "Thats what I want to do. I want to play. Lets put it there. I want to play, for sure." Haden is having a Pro Bowl-worthy season for the Browns (4-10), who have dropped five straight and eight of nine. Although Haden has given up some big plays in Clevelands past three losses, Browns defensive co-ordinator Ray Horton believes the fourth-year cornerback, who has been assigned to cover the oppositions top receiver every week, has played at a consistent, elite level. "When you look at the body of his work, hes had a fantastic year," Horton said. The Browns will be without starting tight end Jordan Cameron on Sunday as he remains sidelined with a concussion.dddddddddddd. Cameron, who leads the Browns with 75 receptions, was also injured at some point late in the loss to the Bears. Hes following the NFLs guidelines on head injuries and must be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can play. Also wide receiver Davone Bess missed his second straight day for personal reasons. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said he should know on Saturday whether Bess will travel with the team. As the Browns went through final preparations for Sundays game, a voice from their past was still making noise. Jets tight end Kellen Winslow, who began his pro career with the Browns, got some attention in Clevelands locker room when he said his former team doesnt have anyone who can cover him. The remarks are typical Winslow -- brash and boastful. "Hes thought that for years," said Chudzinski, who coached Winslow in Cleveland. "Thats the confidence that you want football players to have." Haden wasnt surprised by Winslows claim. "I saw it. Its funny," Haden said. "What would you all expect him to say? You want him to say, Yeah, man, those dudes up there are going to cover me?" I dont really know him that well, but just hearing of his personality, that sounds like the kind of guy that thats what hell say. It is what it is. On Sunday after the game, then well be able to figure out if we were able to guard him, if we werent able to guard him. "So no matter what we say now, it wont matter." cheap jerseys cheap jerseys china cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
