How unusual is Daisuke Matsuzaka?
There's going to be an orgy of coverage about Dice-K's stellar pitching debut for the Red Sox today, and of course it is foolish to extrapolate from one start. That said, I can't resist quoting from Tom Singer's mlb.com postmortem on the start:
"His ball moves funny. To me, it was like working a knuckleball pitcher," said Jeff Nelson, the plate umpire who spent the day looking over catcher Jason Varitek's shoulders.UPDATE: For a play-by-play description of Daisuke's first game, you would be hard-pessed to beat Bill Simmons. posted by Dan on 04.05.07 at 11:01 PM
