There are an awful lot of verses to read, but if and when you are inclined to do so here they are for your reading pleasure.

Debut for Daisuke
Leadoff hit then six go down
Overall looked good

Go Matsuzaka
Three more K's in two innings
Down go the Marlins

March madness is here
Daisuke gives up two big flies
Was Joe in the house?

Rain rain go away
Mats reached base and scored a run?
Luck of the Irish

Steady improvement
Daisuke solid setting down
Fifteen of sixteen

Media panic?
Fans remain optimistic
F.U. Shaughnessy

Red Sox prediction:
Let’s get it started!

Matsuzaka’s first
Goes seven in cold K.C.
A win and ten K’s!

Daisuke and Felix
A great pitching feast tonight
But wait—sushi too

Emperor Dice-K?
No, tonight King Felix reigned
His curveball lethal

Dominates early
Then doesn’t get his strike call
Unglued? 1-and-2

Coco and Cora?
Hideki Okajima??
Oh Mo…Red Sox win!

Daisuke gets win
A nice three-game sweep

Victory in Bronx
Solution for Daisuke?
No more fourth innings

Mariners make-up
Wild night; he looked out of sync
Adjustments in sight?

Who knocks Daisuke?
People try to put him down
The kid is alright

It’s Dice-K Nation
What’s he done for you lately?
Nine frames, in control

Interleague event
Daisuke's home with the Braves
Player of the Week

Matsuzaka flu
Hits Rangers in the stomach
But Sox get the runs

Dunkin Daisuke?
Delivered four donuts and
Hits by the dozen

Pitchers duel late
DiNardo downs Daisuke
Who would have thunk it?

Schilling gives up just
one hit; Daisuke receives
just one run on trip

Dice, Oki and Paps
Giants can’t take down Monster
Strangely, Bonds not big

Back to the 80’s
Maddux speed; but Daisuke
Hungry like the wolf

Great June for Dice-K
1.59 ERA
The kid’s for real

Boston Pops D-Rays
18 9-K Overture
Lugo off the schnide

Due to lay an egg?
Can’t complain about ten wins
Good first half for ‘rook’

Eleventh Heaven
A Daisuke ‘W’
Jays left feeling blue

Devilish Dice-K
6 K’s, 6 walks, leaves in 6th
Hell hot, Red Sox not

D-M bests C-C
Spiraled gyro? Jazz fusion
good in those pitches

Daisuke and Doug
A different battery
But bats need a charge

Mariners again?
Fourth time the charm, ten strikeouts
Enough for a win

What more can he do?
Great start but lead is Gagne
in Camden comeback

Dice-K matinee
Not quite a four-star effort
And poor production

Third loss to D-Rays?
Once again, where are the bats??
Best ten-loss pitcher???

Friggin Idiot
Spoiled what was otherwise
A great Station night

Labor Day weekend
Clay No’s O’s on full pitch tank
Dice-K out of gas?

Inner harbor hell
Dice-K effort for the Birds
Three weeks till playoffs

Encouraging sign
Matsuzaka bounces back
A Game 2 starter?

Daisuke subpar
But ‘Tek and Lugo come through
Sox in postseason

Daisuke’s great eight
Kongurachure-shonzu! (congrats)
Fifteen wins not bad

LDS Game Two
Daisuke can’t go five but
Manny oh Manny!

Sox sweep the Angels
Papi & Manny excel
LCS Friday!

Series tied at one
Now it’s up to Daisuke
to rock in Cleveland

Bad Dice roll last night
Sox need to Wake up at Jake
or pray for some rain?

Westbrook, Byrd slam door
Bats erratic, no clutch hits
3-1 down…comeback?

Do or die tonight
Sox will head back to Boston
Packing bats or clubs?

Beckett is brilliant
Fastballs zip and benders break

Schilling, Carmona
The joy of Game Six awaits
Fens rocks Saturday

Man of mystery
Which Daisuke will we see?
Game Seven…the best!

Fall Classic begins
Red Sox and Rockies, play ball
Let’s say Sox in six

Beckett and Francis
Duo square off in Game One
Showers go away

New Game One records
Thirteen runs scored, twelve-run win
Bats, Beckett stay hot

Pitching wins titles
Schill, Oki and Paps come through
A Holliday gift

Two ribbie pitchers
Cy Young, Babe Ruth…Daisuke
Base hit broke Rocks’ hearts

Don't forget the kids
First time two rooks top order
Dustin M-V-P?

Southpaw Jon Lester
What an emotional year
Breakin' out the brooms

Champs…how sweep it is!!
Lowell MVP…deserved
Red Sox…two in four!!


"You'll have your day, Sir Roger, and it will be bloody. You'll look for Tom and Bill for advice. They'll gladly hand you a good old fashioned, circa WW2 cyanide capsule. It will be fast and fairly painless. Much better than you will deserve. Mother Flipper."
-Beebs 2/8/16

"Listening as Michael Holley opined that Pete Rose may be a despicable person but he played the game right and was the best single shitter ever."
-BobP 6/23/15

"But tit is always a factor."
-BobP with the ultimate typo, no fooling! 4/1/16
