Cubs, winless Darvish face Reds

The Chicago Cubs certainly aren't paying right-handed starter Yu Darvish $126 million for this.

Almost two months -- and seven starts -- into his Cubs career, Darvish still hasn't won. He's still not giving them a lot of innings, and he's certainly not pitching like a top-of-the-rotation starter should, especially given the amount of money he's making.

Still, when Darvish (0-3) starts Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park, in his second start since the flu sent him to the disabled list, manager Joe Maddon will accept a performance much like his first start.
