4/5 Red Sox @ Royals (Matsuzaka vs. Greinke)
Posted 04 April 2007 - 11:04 PM
From Reading to Tokyo, from Andover to Kyoto and parts beyond. Today is the day baseball fans from across the globe will all have their eyes focused on the Boston Red Sox. It's the day we've all been waiting for.
His name is Daisuke Matsuzaka. The Monster. The phenom from the Land of the Rising Sun. And today he will make his first ever major league start. We don't know for sure if he really throws a gyroball. Frankly, we don't care. Gyro or no gyro, we just want to see this guy pitch. We've soaked in the hype, been teased during the spring, and now at last, we get to see him for real.
Are you ready? I know I am.

we get to see him for real.
I'm a displaced Sox fan who grew up in MA but now lives in Nebraska. For me to watch a Red Sox game it has to be nationally televised, I have to go to a sports bar with an MLB package, or I have to go to the game. Of course, going to the game is almost always ridiculous, because pro baseball is usually so far away from here.
But I said "almost." Today is special.
Today my friend and I are making the modest 3.5 hour drive to Kansas City to see Dice-K's first MLB start. I'm just giddy beyond belief.
I guess that's enough of my little celebration. Now back to your regularly scheduled game thread.

As for today, I'm expecting the usual shakey first inning and then just pure dominance, or atleast I hope so, from there on out.
Will they give Manny the day off today and put WMP in left?

He is William Henry "Big Bill" Dinneen (Dineen) and today is his birthday, 1876.
Now go out there and win one for Big Bill.
