Goodness. That was simply amazing. Yu Darvish sends a nearly-perfect signal to start the 2013 that he will be in the Cy Young conversation, which shouldn’t be a shock after what he did to finish the 2012 season. So this Rapid Reaction will focus mainly on Darvish, of course. It was a 7-0 win that saw the no-hitter and perfect game end with two outs in the ninth inning. Marwin Gonzalez (of all people) ended Darvish's bid with a grounder up the middle. Darvish, who threw 111 pitches, was taken out right after that.
