All eyes on Dice K, for the exhibition game

Another Tornado coming to town!

The Phillies first test this early season will be Saturday when the Boston Red Sox and their 100 million dollar pitcher, Dice K, they call him. His real name is Daisuke Matsuzaka and the Phillies will get their first look at the Japanese sensation. All eyes will be on this game to see if the Dice man is the real deal.

I'd like to see the Phils show off in this game and really welcome him to Philly with about a 12-4 rout! That may be unlikely but we will see what happens soon enough. Dice had 19 strikeouts in only 17 innings pitched during Spring Training. The buzz around him reminds me of the buzz that surrounded 'The Tornado' Hideo Nomo when he pitched for LA.

Welcome home Phillies! The first game at home is tonight at Citizen's Bank Park
