    Dice-K?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Pitching for the BoSox today.


    You can add a tag if you want... but ESPN has told us the game is all about him anyways.

    Just a reminder today's game is on FSN and is also in HD on ESPNHD. I am not sure but ESPN might be blacked out locally because it is also on FSN.

    Good lord, who came up with that nickname? Me thinks ESPN's fingerprints are all over that one.

    You think?

    Here's to hoping we deliver a vicious battering to ESPN's idol today.

    Re: 3-26 Game Thread vs. Red Sox (Matsuzaka pitching)

    This is from C. Trent's blog. With Matsuzaka pitching today they had to give out 200 media credentials to a spring training game.

    Big day at the old ballpark today. There's a huge media crush expected with about 75 reporters in the Red Sox traveling party, including a ton of Japanese reporters following around starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka. Overall, PR guru Rob Butcher said - with ESPN, FSN, and Tokyo Broadcasting System - he had to issue about 200 daily media credentials.

    The list includes: Boston Globe, Boston Hearld, Providence Journal, Hartford Courant, Lawrence Eagle Tribune, MLB.com, AP, Portland Press Herald, Asahi Shimbun, Chunichi Shimbun, Fuji Evening News, Hochi Shimbun, Jiji Press, Kyodo News, Nikkan Gendai, Kikkeil Shimbun, Nikkan Sports News, Sankei Shimbun, Sankei Sports, Sports Nippon, Daily Sports, Mainichi New2s, Tokyo Sports Press, Yomiuri Shuimbun, FM Nack 5 Radio, Fuji TV, NHK, NTV, TBS, TV Asahi, TV Tokyo and Nuevo Dia.

    It was inevitable. He's a pitcher, his first name is pronounced almost exactly like "Dice-K", there's just no way that was ever going to be avoided.

    Quick, I need an algebra lesson plan to use utilizing the game on ESPN...

    We'd hate to let work stand in the way of a good spring training game

    I still say, and no I can't speak Japanese, that his name should not be pronounced like that, but instead should be Die-sook-e or Die-sook-eh

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    looks like the opening day lineup.

    Not great but it could be worse. Gonzo should never bat anywhere other than 8th.

    Phillips hitting 3rd isn't likely to turn out well either.

    I'll give him the benefit of the doubt right now considering he is still somewhat of a rookie. (an older rookie, though) He isn't likely to get much more patient... but he'll surely figure out how to handle ML pitches better. Assuming he can keep from falling into one of his nasty slumps, he'll be a pleasant surprise this year.
