Daisuke Matsuzaka

Daisuke "Dice-K" Matsuzaka
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 185 lbs.
Born: September 13, 1980 in Tokyo, Japan
Purchased: by the Boston Red Sox from the Seibu Lions, December 2006
Acquired: as a free agent, August 2013
Departed: as a free agent, October 2014

 

Once a high-priced Japanese import who had one stellar year with the Red Sox, Dice-K was an excruciatingly slow worker on the mound, occasionally taking nearly 45 seconds to prepare his next pitch. If you don't think 45 seconds is a very long time, you clearly never watched one of Matsuzaka's starts.  In happier days here, on 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces, and in happier days yet below, on a 2003 Japanese card celebrating his being named Japan's Best Pitcher.  There are other cards below as well. After his second season with the Mets, Dice-K returned to Japan.
