Dice-K issues statement

For the first time this spring, Daisuke Matsuzaka did not meet with the media after his performance. He was scheduled to meet with the media but changed his mind and issued a statement which read:

‘‘This time of the year, I think the content of my pitching is more important than the result on paper. I’m not happy with the content of my pitching today. I threw a lot of walks and wasted balls and it was tough for my fielders to defend and to get into a good rhythm on offense. It’s something I want to pay attention to in the regular sesason.’’
