Pretty cool. You can see Darvish’s song and antics on the San Diego show of his first AB:

You can see that Darvish was trying to get Rizzo’s attention and also signaling to anyone watching him that it would be worth listening to his music this time.
Anthony Rizzo raises his arms in disbelief as Yu Darvish uses his walking music.

Turns out Darvish didn’t really troll Rizzo with the move, he honored him:
Yu Darvish stole Anthony Rizzo’s music when he came knocking on his first start against the Cubs today. It was his way of honoring him.

“I used this song because it was Rizzo who kind of took care of me when things weren’t really working out my way in Chicago,” Darvish said, according to ESPN. “It was, in a way, to say ‘thank you’ to him. And obviously I have a good relationship with him.
Well done, Yu. Loved by everyone, and funny too.
