Nothing makes the ladies smile like a non-Daisuke start.

Daisuke’s inability to hold a 5-1 lead last night means there’s that much more pressure on Felix Doubront tonight. Will he rise to the challenge? Will the bats go shit crazy and knock Jeff Neimann out early?

I don’t know the answers to these questions. But I do know Matsuzaka’s not pitching tonight. So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.
