Hub’s opening day
Signs read: WE LOVE DAISUKE
Manny asks, “Who’s that?”
– Yanks Fan In Boston
YFSF and YFIB in particular get a nod in The Riddle from soupless Tom Verducci on SI.com for YFIB’s winning Daiku from our contest earlier this year. The hat tip is on page six of the article. It’s a good, long read from Verducci, who considers the cultural differences facing the Boston star, the Sox, and the Media while marveling at the range and durability of Matsuzka’s arm. (D)Ice-less Man?
Daisuke gets rave reviews from several sources, including a remarkable take from Karim Garcia, who says, “He’s going to be like Pedro.” (?!?!) Who is Kar.. um, never mind. Larry Lucchino says, “We’re trying to take a more Japanese-like philosophy [while looking] at the long-term perspective.” One can only wonder if concessionaires at Fenway will offer expensive square fruit.
