Daisuke Matsuzaka is Japanese for Derek Lowe
One game Daisuke Matsusaka is coughing up 5 runs in the first to the Yankees… next thing you know he’s throwing a no hitter into the 8th inning in Philadelphia… next start he can’t get out of the 5th against the Royals.
Isn’t that a microcosm of the Dice-K era in Boston? Every time you say “I think Dice-K is going to pitch like an ace now” he wets the bed. Every time you say “Oh man, it was a huge mistake bringing him here” he throws a great game.
