That's right folks...today is the day that Daisuke Matsuzaka is returning to the big boys club and pitching on a mound. I know there is a lot of discussion, complaints and just frustrations sometimes with Dice-K, particularly with how things went down last year...however, that doesn't temper my excitement. I think Dice-K is a fantastic pitcher and the fact that we are getting him back into the rotation...I think good things can come from that. He's looked fantastic down there in AAA.
So, welcome back Dice-K! And please...feel free to bring it and give a shot at going 7 strong.
And yes...everyone is invited to the Welcome Back Dice-K party...except of course, Alan Embree and Tim Wakefield. They had a prior engagement...in a bitter barn.
