posticon Los Angeles Dodgers Acquire Yu Darvish


Congratulations to the Los Angeles Dodgers on acquiring Yu Darvish (ダルビッシュ・セファット・ファリード・有). Hopefully, now, with his help, the Dodgers can finally win a championship.

I was very confused by Yu Darvish's name until I finally realized "Darvish" is his surname, not his given name. I am used to seeing Asian surname + Americanized given name (like my own), but in Darvish's case, "Darvish" is his Iranian surname from his father and "Yu" is his middle name.

Re: Los Angeles Dodgers Acquire Yu Darvish


How nice to see your post, Ccwf. Welcome back to the board! emoticon

I don't follow baseball too closely, but am aware of the recent woes of the Dodgers and so I'm glad that Yu Darvish has joined the team. I was not familiar with him until I looked his name up on Wikipedia. He was born in Osaka, Japan, but is half-Iranian and half-Japanese. His father's surname is Darvishsefat (Darvish for short).

He seems to have quite a successful career and I trust that his entry will be good luck for the Dodgers!
