    David Schoenfield

    SURPRISE, Ariz. -- One thing you can say about Yu Darvish: He isn't just a thrower, a guy with a million-dollar arm and five-cent head. After struggling with command and location in Sunday's spring training game against the White Sox, Darvish went...

    David Schoenfield

    I want to say that Roy Oswalt always seemed underrated but I'm not sure that's exactly true. He finished in the top five of the Cy Young race five times, so it's hard to argue he was completely ignored. He was certainly respected and admired within t...
