    What are your expectations of Matsuzaka tonight?

    NESN:
    The last time the Red Sox played at Fenway Park, Daisuke Matsuzaka simply dazzled, stealing the show on Patriots' Day. They return home on Friday night, and Matsuzaka will look to pick up right where left off in front of the home crowd.

    The Sox welcome the Seattle Mariners to town, and Matsuzaka will look to keep what's been a very impressive hot streak going. After tossing the Patriots' Day gem, Matsuzaka stayed hot with another dominating performance against the Angels on April 23. In his last two starts, the right-hander has allowed just a combined two hits over 15 innings of work in two wins.

    No expectation.  But it go a long way to a general good feeling toward my man Dice if he put together 3 quality starts (I'll take a qs, never mind the gems he has been twirling) in a row.

    Definitely reasonable.  I want him battling and throwing strikes.  When he and the offense put it together at the same time, it will be pretty to watch.

    Hope he delivers for you, Hammah. I'd be happy with a six inning quality start.

    With Dice-K,you really don't know what to expect.I think and hope he'll go 6+,3runs (2 earned) and get the win.
     Good Luck with your bet Hammah.

    My feeling is Dice-K will twirl a gem and make me eat crow for predicting mediocrity from him this season. I hope he does. Go Dice-K!

    Daisuke Matsuzaka is 2-1 in eight career starts against the Mariners with a 4.11 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and .231 BAA.

    In 2007 I saw Matsuzaka pitch against the Red Sox in Seattle when the Mariners completed a three-game sweep of the eventual World Series champions:

    Matsuzaka won the other two starts I witnessed against other teams:

    The only expectation I've learned to expect from Dice-K is not to expect anything!!  :)

    Tough call.  But, since you asked, I think 6 innings and 2 or 3 runs is about right.
