If you haven't read the Sports Guy's latest mailbag, you missed him asking his readers for a nickname for new Boston starter Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Bill, How about Daisuke "Skyline" Matsuzaka. Here's what it has going for it:
1) It will remind everyone in New York, home of a world-famous skyline, that neither the Mets nor the Yankees, with all their cash, bid enough to get Matsuzaka.
2) It rolls off the tounge. Say it: Daisuke "Skyline" Matsuzaka.
3) Doesn't "Skyline" sound like an unbelievably expensive nickname that reflects the sky-high expectations Boston's gonna have for him?
4) Some geek made an excellent comparison of the pitcher to a car of the very same name.
