Six wild pitches?! C'mon man. Can anyone explain to me what Diasuke is afraid of. He looks scared to pitch to contact and just nibbles the Red Sox to death. If I were Jason Varitek (who didn't catch last night), I would only call fast balls. In, out, up, down. Just locate the fast ball and pound the strike zone. Daisuke (I'm not using Dice-K anymore until he learns how to pitch) has too much going on with his pitches. Because he works on so many, none of them are spectacular and none of them are an 'out' pitch that he can go to.
This crumby performance by Matsuzaka plus the fact that Jon Lester doesn't look right is very disturbing. Josh Beckett hasn't performed great either to be honest. People keep talking about the Red Sox pitching depth, but it doesn't count if everyone is mediocre.
