Opinion: In spring start, Yu Darvish flashes reasons Padres can dream on greatness this season
PEORIA, Ariz. — There he was standing on the mound, wearing the brown-and-gold uniform in a spring-training game for the first time, representing the San Diego Padres’ hopes and dreams.
The Padres loaded up all winter. They grabbed frontline starters and locked up stars, trying to scare their neighbors up the I-5 Freeway.
Well, if the Padres are going to interrupt the Los Angeles Dodgers’ dynasty hopes, no one is more important than Yu Darvish, who showed in his first spring training start why the Padres acquired him from the Chicago Cubs in a salary dump.
Darvish dazzled in his debut Sunday, striking out four batters in two innings against the Kansas City Royals. He threw seven different pitches, and permitted just one baserunner, a single. He certainly looked like the guy who dominated the NL Central last year, going 8-3 with a 2.01 ERA and finishing second to Trevor Bauer, then with the Cincinnati Reds, in the Cy Young race.

Texas’ Brazos Electric Power Cooperative Files For Bankruptcy
Brazos Electric Power Cooperative Inc., the largest power generation and transmission cooperative in Texas, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection citing a huge bill from the state’s grid operator following major outages recently amid the winter storm.
Brazos received a $1.8 billion bill from electricity grid operator Electric Reliability Council of Texas or ERCOT for the seven day winter storm event that caused power failure for millions of residents for days.
In the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, the company listed both estimated assets and liabilities of $1 billion to $10 billion.
Brazos Electric provides electricity to more than 660,000 customers across the state of Texas through its 16 utility company members.
In its filing, the company said that it filed for bankruptcy to protect itself, its member cooperatives, and consumers from a massive bill.
In mid-February, majority of the state’s power plants were shut down following unusually frigid temperatures that affected around 4.3 million people without heat or light for days, and caused severe damages to houses and businesses.
In the state, other utilities and power companies also face hefty charges in billions of dollars related to the recent blackouts.

PHOTOS: Historic images from the construction of the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel
Two tunnels, 11 years in the making, bored approximately 1.7 miles through the Continental Divide. Originally known as the Straight Creek Tunnel, the westbound bore was officially named the Eisenhower Memorial Bore before it opened. The eastbound tunnel construction started after the westbound bore was complete and was named after former Gov. Edwin C. Johnson. The tunnels help connect Colorado’s east and west sides via Interstate 70. The project began in 1968 and was completed in 1979.
