Too busy to be creative tonight. I'm going lightning style with my prediction. Tigers are first in baseball with a team .290 average, 3rd with a .352 OBP, and first with a .471 slugging mark. They lead the 2nd place Indians by 35 runs scored on the season. There offense is goofy. Dangerous business.

Daisuke is usually clutch when the team needs him.

I hope this isn't going to happen to Daisuke every time he faces a team for the second time (or more). He's gotten knocked around every time.

Not a very good start by Matsuzaka, but I'm not too concerned. He's had a string of very good starts and was bound to have a bad start sooner or later.

Don't be too worried about teams who see Daisuke multiple times. Seattle has seen him 3 times now. His last start against them was extremely impressive. Toronto still can't figure him out either.

Just when Dice-K was really on a roll, he turns in a performance like this. I know Detroit has an impressive lineup, but he just didn't pitch well at all.

That said, he's still going to end up with 18+ wins, not bad for a 'rookie'. :)

Before this game, I thought to myself that this is the true test for DiceK. Unfortunately, he didn't do too well. Hope he gets better.

What happened to Matsuzaka? He reverted back to his home-run prone ways.

2 steps forward. 1 step back.

Should we change his nickname to Dice-HR?

You're hilarious

Please do check his stats. Even with 3HRs today his HR allowed is still no where near top 10 in the MLB

Not a huge concern. Pitcher has good games and bad games and today was Matsuzaka's bad game.

I noticed the Daisuke haters disappeared in June, but with one bad start, they all come out of the woodwork. Look, a pitcher can get away with average stuff on his bad days against the weak lineups, but this team went to the World Series last year (and should have won it). Daisuke shut them down once, but the flat fastball and failure to control his breaking pitchers wasn't going to get him by on Sunday.

I'm sure it was a blip, and he'll hopefully bounce back against the Blue Jays. It'll be interesting to see how he does the third time around.
