Daisuke Matsuzaka Banished To Bullpen...Beckett To Take His Place

Theo Epstein recently approached the powers-that-be and told them that the Boston Red Sox bullpen needs a ton of help. Well, the first step in improving the 'pen AND the rotation was taken today when Josh Beckett was called up to the big club after his successful rehabilitation starts and Matsuzaka was removed from the rotation to make room for him. Epstein also plans to acquire a couple relievers who can be more effective than the washed up Ramon Ramirez. Good riddance to Dice K. He was, at least this year, a complete bust who was tough to watch as he tried unsuccessfully to find the plate. My goodness!

Good morning from Peter on Tuesday, the day after a horrid job by the Boston Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka. Of course, the above paragraph was fiction which might possibly come true after the All Star break. It better! If it does, it couldn't happen soon enough. It's gotten to the point that I almost do not want to watch a game Daisuke starts. That won't change. I promise you. Boston lost to the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 6-5. Matsuzaka, soon (I hope) to be out of the rotation, needed 112 (!!) pitches to go five plus innings. Include two huge mental errors in the mix, too. He, with a little help from another gem of a pitcher, Ramon Ramirez, blew a 5-1 lead to lose the game.
To put it bluntly, they both suck and with Matsuzaka in the rotation and Ramirez in the bullpen, the Red Sox will go nowhere. Period. I don't think Matsuzaka even KNOWS where the fuc*ing plate is.

I'm sick to my stomach just thinking about last night so I'm going to wrap this up. If you click on this post's title you'll be directed to a great article about the travails of Daisuke from the Boston Herald. Remember, BE SAFE. I hope you had a great 4th.
