Goodbye Daisuke Matsuzaka
Nearly 6 years ago I wrote this post and created this video welcoming Dice-K Daisuke Matsuzaka to the Red Sox.
Everyone knew at the time it was a bit of an expensive wager; now we know just how expensive a wager it was.
The Red Sox total bill for Daisuke Matsuzaka comes out to $881,282 per game pitched or $2,062,200 per win.

Wednesday October 3 2012 was Matsuzaka's last start as a Red Sox and it was your typical Dice-K start.
|D. Matsuzaka (L, 1-7)||2.1||6||5||5||1||2||2||1.71||8.28|
Matsuzaka's final line with the Red Sox: 50 wins, 37 losses, 116 games started, 321 walks, and surprizingly an ERA of 4.52
