Don't look now, but former Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka could soon become the Koji Uehara of Flushing. That's right, Metropolitans manager Terry Collins is so pleased with Dice-K's transition to the bullpen that he's considering installing him as the team's closer. Since being recalled from AAA, Dice-K has posted a stellar 2.08 ERA for The Amazins. Imagine—someday soon, we could witness a ninth inning that lasts 2 hours and 33 minutes. With a pitch count of 49. We can't wait!
