Roll of the Dice... comes up a winner

Congratulations go out to our man, Dice-K Matsuzaka, most recently named the AL Player of the Week. Seems our man from the Far East has finally found his groove.

After opening the season with a 1-2 record, he's won 5 of his last 6 starts.
Over the week of 5/20, Matsuzaka went 2-0 with a 2.12 ERA and 11 strikeouts in two starts.
including a complete-game victory against the Detroit Tigers. Yeah !

Definitely started the season a bit shaky, but has certainly been the master of adjustments, to get his strong command back. Great to see our $100 million dollar man investment seems to be paying off... Have you guys gotten your Red Sox shirts, written in japanese yet?


Game 2 tonite continues the Red Sox/Yankees series. This one will give us Julian T vs. Mike Mussina. Should be a good game, I expect both teams should be able to muster some runs against these guys. Neither are overpowering guys. Hopefully our batting practice will result in more runs than the Yankees' will. Hey, if Tavarez can get us to the end of the 6th with a lead; I don't have more of an expectation than that. I will be THRILLED. Then we can Let the pen give us an inning or two, and bring in Papelbon. You guys all know the drill. C'mon, after the Yankees won last night, today's papers and blogs and radio guys are all acting like the Yankees are a game away from first place... and that all of their troubles are over.

I doubt it.
