Where did you come up with him being the 4th best pitcher in the world? I'm not doubting that he's good or anything, just want to know where you pulled that number from.

Not even counting that he throws a gyro-pitch (or something) that major leaguers have ever seen,

You're kidding right? He may turn out to be a nice pitcher, but he doesn't throw anything that people haven't seen before. The gyroball is a myth. It's just a fastball that doesn't spiral. I think Daisuke is extremely overrated here and elswhere.


Well whatever he is throwing it freaked out Hermida and Jason Stokes.

Frances I like your Mars Volta reference, but not your thinking on the Dice-Man. Let's see how he does for an entire season, not two innings in preseason.

The funny thing to me was Dice-K was actually out-pitched in the game by a guy with a great Minor League track record who will likely be a very late round pick if picked at all.
