Dice-K Mania!

Well it seems the hype was justified, at least fo the first start. Daisuke Matsuzaka made his first start of the spring today, and was DOMINANT. His line was as follows:

7IP 6H 1ER 1BB 10K

Matsuzaka, who wasn't satisfied with his spring-training performances, threw 74 of 108 pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old right-hander, 108-60 with a 2.95 ERA and 1,355 strikeouts for the Seibu Lions, did not have to face two of Kansas City's top hitters: Mike Sweeney and Mark Grudzielanek were given the day off following a night game. That said it was a promising beginning for the pitcher. The Red Sox won, 4-1.
