Dice K Needs Tommy John

Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka has elected to have Tommy John ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow and intends to inform the team of his decision when he meets with club officials this week, according to a baseball source. ESPN

This is huge news for the Red Sox who lost their pitcher to put them over the hump. The thing that sucks the most is that he tried every option before realizing he had to get this done. This may be the last time we ever see Dice K in a Sox uniform as he is a free agent after this year and the recovery time is a little over a year.

Dice K finished his Red Sox career with a 49-30 record with a 4.25 era and 568 Ks. To put that in persecutive that's a lower ERA than Josh Becketts Red Sox career era and a pretty good winning percentage to boot. I'm not going to say that the season is over, but it looks glum with this more than significant loss.

RIP Dice K
