Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP
In-and-out of trouble, Matsuzaka had an edge-of-the-seat 18-3 season. It has never been easy with Matsuzaka over his two seasons with the Sox, but he usually seems to make it work. Most impressively, Matsuzaka faced 18 situations with the bases loaded, and never gave up a hit. He was the MVP of the WBC for the second straight time. No one can doubt he's a winner, no matter how he does it.
