    Since the people being named a little too obvious for my tastes, I'm going to go international with my favorite.

    Yu Darvish - P - Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters



    Ever since Dice-K left Japan, the 21 year old Darvish has emerged as the best pitcher in Japan. Last season he went...

    15-5
    1.82 ERA
    .174 BAA
    207 2/3 IP
    123 H
    49 BB
    210 K

    He throws a Low-Mid 90's (92-94) Fastball, with a Sinker, Slider, Change and Knuckle-Curve.

    I hope he stays unknown as I chose to keep Kerry Woods (for $4) in my Roto League. Looks like Wood is getting the closer job....for now.

    As I have R. Soriano, I think Im gonna handcuff Moylan if i can get him for $1-$2.
