Beat "Arizona" TakeshiThanks to Hiroko Ota, Minister of State for Economic and Fiscal Policy, I was able to provide another stunningly accurate prediction for Daisuke Matsuzaka's last start. Continuing the trend of celebrity guests, I've enlisted famous Japanese film director, actor, and all around personality Beat Takeshi to make the latest guess. Here's what he had to say:
Yeah. At first he just kind of stared at me for a few minutes. Then, he had this to say:
"Lots of strikeouts."
"Lots of blood and screaming."
No. No. No. You're going to far. Just stick to baseball. This is real. No surrealism.
"A dog will bark in the distance and then a speeding police car will crash through the centerfield fence, followed by an ambulance."
Stop. This is about real baseball. Daisuke Matsuzaka vs. Randy Johnson. Red Sox and Diamondbacks.
Do you have anything for me?
Is this it?
8 IP, 5 hits, no walks, 1 run, 9 strikeouts
Thanks. I'll go with that. Best start to date.
