Is it safe to believe the hype now?
Six hits, 10 K's and held the Royals hitless in three at-bats with runners in scoring position … Believe, brother, believe.
The performance was so strong even the CHB gushes, "in his first game Matsuzaka delivered on all the expectations that accompanied his celebrated journey to America's major leagues"
As David Pinto wrote after the Matsuzaka's fourth inning, "My advice to the AL after watching that inning: Be afraid, be very afraid."
Red Sox set them up the bomb!
