In other news, the sky is blue, rain is wet, yadda yadda,

How long do the Sox stick with Dice-K in the rotation? I can only imagine that situation is even more dire than the Yankees and Wang – Matsuzaka is signed for around $11 million a year for the next three seasons after this one!
Can Matsuzaka be sent to the minor leagues, ala most-expensive-AAA-starter Kei Igawa?

My mistake, Dice-K’s contract only escalates to that much with good performance. He’s at $8 million, $10 million, $10 million through 2012.

I don’t follow the Sox much other then when they play the Yanks – is the Dice-K issue pretty much thought to be all WBC-related?

I was at that game, and it was the first time I’ve seen a pitcher record only 2 kinds of pitches – balls or hits – in the first 11 deliveries to the plate.
It reminded me of that 2003 game against Pavano and the Marlins when the RS got 14 guys to the plate (or some obscene number like that) without an out.
DM gave up 3 straight hits on consecutive pitches, then threw 8 balls, and finally threw a few pitches that were hammered at people for a change. Absolutely amazing he got away with just 2 runs.
I know everybody saw all this, but it happened a couple of hundred feet from me, and I’m still in shock……….
Next time I go, I’m gonna make sure it’s Wake pitching………he’s comfortingly predictable by comparison.
BTW, our offense has really sucked the past 2 days……just saying.

on the bright side, i think dice.k did work out of another bases loaded jam without giving up a run…i think that makes 17 in a row, not bad….maybe the solution is for him to walk the bases loaded to start every inning, then work out of it…shutout ;)
