Daisuke Matsuzaka – Pictures

Way back in December (I think), I got tickets to the Phillies/Red Sox exhibition series. Little did I know at the time of purchase, Daisuke Matsuzaka would be pitching the second exhibition game. I was able to snap some photos, which I think turned out especially well, considering my photography skills are severely lacking.

Here’s Dice-K working his way through a warm-up pitch:


And here he is throwing to Chase Utley:


His control was pretty off early in the game, especially with his breaking pitches, but he seemed to settle in as things progressed. For his past two starts, the only person who could really beat Dice-K has been Dice-K himself.
