Daisuke Matsuzaka K’d one and allowed a hit in his first inning against Major League Hitters. Next step: Hall of Fame.
Matsuzaka threw 15 pitches in the inning, 11 for strikes. He threw a first-pitch strike to each hitter.
Bill Parcells visited the press box between innings. He said he knows nothing about rumors that the Patriots might be interested in acquiring Randy Moss. He has no opinion on Dice-K.
‘‘I wasn’t watching the first inning,’’ said the Tuna.
I want to know what on earth Bill Parcells is doing at a game featuring Daisuke Matsuzaka if he’s not watching Daisuke Matsuzaka. That’s at least three fans that could have gotten in and actually appreciated the moment, even as overhyped and ultimately insignificant as it is.
Update: Matsuzaka went three innings, gave up two hits and a walk and struck out three. He escaped a second-inning jam and allowed no runs. So the panic that will set in if/when he has a bad start is averted at least five more days.
