    Man, it's a good thing you are going to give us a report cause otherwise I don't think we'll be able to get any info about how he did. Have fun. The K is one of my favorite stadiums.

    Re: Dice-K

    My thoughts on Dice-K.He is an above average SP- with good movement on his fastball and off speed stuff is what will take awhile for MLB to adjsut to, Ross Gload did not looked good at first plate apprene but on 2nd at bat- he made an adjsutment and sent deep drive to the warning track,That where the League will caught up with Dice-K on the 2nd go around for each club like there dis with Nomo and with on going adjustment with Saito with the Dodgers and plus it 38 degree at the K this afternoon and alot Japanesse media all around the K.I heard alot boo for Dice-K for sone his antics on the mound between pitches. I an afraid this type of reaction will be plenty where ever he goes with the Japanesse media- thy seam alot resentment from the American crowd towrds Dice-k.

    With the exception of David DeJesus, Matsuzaka's pretty much had his way with the Royals today. He's been painting the corners with about a half dozen different pitches. He's coming back out for the 7th, so we'll see how he does now that he's up around 100 pitches.

    Greinke outpitched him. If they've got him straightened out, the Royals might really have something. That's an awfully tough division, though.

    I completely disagree. Greinke's fastball is sitting 87-88 and he's giving up a ton of flyballs (to go with four doubles). Only the frigid conditions in K.C. are keeping the ball in the park. I saw Al Nipper have a game like this against Brett Saberhagen at Fenway once.

    Meanwhile Daisuke whiffed two and got a shallow fly in the 7th.

    I was very impress with Zack against David Ortiz- He got struck him out 3 times.Zack has world potential hopefully his mind straight and he become the SP- we all hope can be for the Royals.

    Matsuzaka struck out 10 and gave up 6 hits through 7 IP. Greinke struck out 7 and gave up 8 hits through 7 IP.

    Both pitchers pitched a great game, but Matsuzaka was clearly the better of the 2.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Greinke could be Comeback Player of the Year.

    He has the talent. Hopefully he has his head going in the right direction.

    I have no idea what you just said in part because the lack of periods, but Dice K is more than above average. He may get a lot of play because he's in Boston and because of the money they paid to get him, (barring injury) he will be money well spent. People caught up with Nomo because of his delivery. Dice K has much more effective pitches. He'll be more effective that Nomo.

    From what I saw today, he's in for a world of hurt this year. Add another 20 degrees fahrenheit and all the PE in those balls stroked to the OF will turn into KE.

    Look at the relative strengths of the 2 lineups, though. And I posted that before the 7th, so yeah, I'll take it back, but Greinke came close enough to impress the hell out of me, especially after everything he's been through.

    He wont be facing a line up like the Red Sox every game either though.

    Won't matter. His fastball drives in the slow lane. Everyone can hit that thing.
