Yikes! Dice-K Starts Tonight Against The Tigers

Daisuke Matsuzaka won't be wearing his lucky #18 on his new Mets uniform—and he might need it. Tonight, Dice-K makes his Mets debut (wearing Doc Gooden's old #16) against the vaunted Tigers lineup. The team made the announcement after it was widely rumored that he'd been inserted into the rotation immediately. The Mets have suffered a string of injuries to starting pitchers and need warm bodies desperately. You might want to shield the eyes of young children during the broadcast.
