Yu Darvish contract poll: Should Texas have matched?

Would you have wanted the Rangers to match the 6 year, $126 million (with an opt out after 2019) deal Yu Darvish signed with the Chicago Cubs?

As you all know, Yu Darvish has reportedly agreed to a six year, $126 million deal with the Chicago Cubs that includes a full no trade clause for the early years of the deal that transitions to a partial no trade clause, and that gives Darvish the right to opt out of the deal after 2019.

There’s been a certain amount of consternation among Texas Rangers fans about Texas not being willing to do this, so I figured I would put up a poll on the issue...

Would you have wanted the Rangers to sign Yu Darvish to the same deal he signed with the Cubs?

    This entire debate is tantamount to siding with the billionaire owners and evaluating deals thus makes you anti-labor
