Someone Calm Dan Shaughnessy Down

Per The Boston Globe:

“The Daisuke Matsuzaka Era officially began last night when John Henry’s $103 million mound investment threw his first pitches in a game in a Red Sox uniform.”

Against Boston College.

“We got to see that hesitation at the top of his windup.”

Great.

“We got to see him pitch from the stretch and get out of a jam.”

Which means he allowed baserunners. Against Boston College.

“We got to see him throw breaking pitches that seemed to defy the laws of physics.”

That may or may not have gotten him into a jam. Against Boston College.

Again, my point is not to say that Matsuzaka is a bad pitcher or to personally attack his abilities in any way. He is probably going to be very good. But the media (I’m looking at you too, ESPN) needs to really calm down.
