Some games, like yesterday’s, are great to watch. Others, like tonight’s, have the potential for simple greatness.
Two great battles will be on display — Daisuke Matsuzaka versus Ichiro Suzuki, the beginning of which you can see here, and Matsuzaka versus Felix Hernandez.
Ichiro vs. Daisuke
The Monster vs. King Felix
This could be a game we discuss for years, on a par with the 1912 Wood-Johnson duel, the 2003 Martinez-Clemens playoff matchup, or the great Marichal-Gibson games of the 1960s. Two great pitching talents and two legendary countrymen facing off in the same contest.
Potentially great games often disappoint, and this one could, too. But it just might not, and that is exciting indeed.
