In his last 2 outings, he has dominated the opposition. If you look at Becketts 1st year in Boston compared to Dice-K's 1st year, they are quite similar.
Beckett: 16-11, 204 IP, 191 H, 36 HR, 74 BB, 158 K, 5.01 ERA
Matzuzaka: 15-12, 204 IP, 191 H, 25 HR, 80 BB, 201 K, 4.40 ERA
Can we expect to see Daisuke make that jump to Ace status like Beckett did last year?
If Daisuke keeps pitching this well, Red Sox clearly have the best 1-2 punch in all of baseball.
