Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka blows lead

New York Mets RP Daisuke Matsuzaka blew a three-run lead in the eighth inning in a loss to the Miami Marlins Monday, May 5. Matsuzaka walked the first two hitters he faced in the inning. "When I was warming up in the bullpen, I was struggling with my command," Matsuzaka said through an interpreter. "Going into the game, I just tried to focus on the batter and getting outs. But I couldn't control my body well today. I really regret taking away Niese's win and the team win." Matsuzaka had walked six in 10 1/3 innings in seven relief appearances prior to Monday's outing, but he was working for the third straight day after warming up in the bullpen Sunday, May 4. RPs Carlos Torres and Jeurys Familia were unavailable to pitch Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Such are the perils of owning Dice-K in hopes he receives some save opportunities. He technically isn't even the closer - that job belongs to Kyle Farnsworth - making him mainly an NL-only commodity desperate owners.
