Meanwhile, in Goodyear, Arizona:

On Sunday, [Daisuke Matzusaka] topped off at 88 to 89 mph on two scouts’ guns, considerably slower than what he threw in his first few seasons in Boston. He is trying to make a comeback after Tommy John surgery in 2011 and a 1-7 record last year with Boston.

Not gonna hold my breath here.

    That “C” logo is so racist toward the “A’s” and “B’s” of the world. Alphabetism at its worst I tell ya.

    It appears he was on the same cheesy nacho and fried chicken diet he was on in Boston.

    This guy was done 5 years ago. He just threw way too many pitches in high school and in the Japan league.

    He’s going to be a stud this year. He’s finally going to use that “Gyro Ball” he was talking about 5 years ago.

      He really did look amazing in the World Baseball Classic, right? I mean, we didn’t imagine that.

      What happened?

    I wonder what Dice-K thinks about the Chief Wahoo logo.

    Is Daisuke Matsuzaka being bad at pitching really a news story? It’s been the same song since 2008.
