Yu Darvish sends perfect tweet after Astros get penalties for cheating
Yu Darvish continues to demonstrate he has an elite sense of humor.
The Chicago Cubs pitcher was on the mound for Games 3 and 7 of the 2017 World Series for the Dodgers and was hit hard by the Houston Astros both times, losing both games. That came after he was dominant in wins over the Diamondbacks and Cubs earlier in the postseason, too.
Many were perplexed by the dominant ace getting pounded by Houston in the World Series, and only accusations of him tipping pitches could explain Houston’s success in those games.
In light of the penalties against the Astros being announced on Monday, Darvish sent a funny tweet suggesting the Dodgers might celebrate themselves as World Series champs (MLB’s statement declared the Astros cheated in the postseason). Of course, Darvish poked fun at himself with a “Yu Garbage” mention.
If the Dodgers are planning a 2017 World Series parade, I would love to join! So if that is in the works, can someone make a Yu Garbage Jersey for me?

Darvish and the Dodgers have never accepted Houston’s suggestion that the pitcher was tipping his pitches. Darvish wondered if the Astros had a way of cheating on the road. He was made out to be the goat of the World Series, but as time goes on, it seems more and more that he may have just been wronged by a cheating Astros team.
