Jeff Wilson has a story on the Yu-mania, which featured between 100 and 200 people following Darvish everywhere he went yesterday.
T.R. Sullivan has a story on the Darvish drama.
Gil Lebreton has a column on the pressures that Yu Darvish will be facing as the latest Japanese superstar to come to America.
Evan Grant writes that Roy Oswalt's decision to hold off on signing helps the Rangers, who now have more time to trade Koji Uehara or one of their starting pitchers to make room for Oswalt. I still don't understand why the Rangers need to jump through so many hoops to bring Oswalt here right now.
Sullivan writes that the Rangers' catching situation is somewhat unsettled, as it isn't really clear yet who will get the majority of the starts behind the plate.
Derek Holland says that, while all the attention right now is on Yu Darvish, people shouldn't forget about the rest of the team.
Richard Durrett has six items of note from Surprise yesterday.
