OK Dice-K... you listen to me and listen good. (Someone please translate this for me!)
We all thought you were going to be a dominant ace.
Heck, I even equated you to Gandalf.
You don't have to be dominant... you don't even have to be great... or even good.
Just be medicore.
I'd take 6 innings 4 runs (a 5.00 ERA) and I think every Red Sox fan would too.
The bats are on fire and the bullpen is so deep that I think even Luis Tiant and Smokey Joe Wood can give the Sox an inning each.
Pitch a game good enough to win... and like J. D. Drew, nobody will remember your up and down regular season.
I know it is a weak rallying cry but it is good to have goals!
