Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka is back after a year on the shelf recovering from Tommy John surgery. Word in Japan has it that he's undergone a remarkable transformation and is ready for some superhuman feats. At least that's according to the tall tales offered in this Nike ad posted on You Tube as part of its #NEWMATSUZAKA campaign.
Dice-K gave up four runs and five hits over five innings in his first start on Saturday, striking out eight and walking one against the Nationals. Lucky for these kids it was probably way past their bedtime Saturday night and/or well before they woke up Sunday morning. Those numbers are hardly the stuff of legends. But then again, Bryce Harper was born on Krypton.
