Fantasy Baseball: Tuesday's Top Performers

The Red Sox got a great performance last night out of starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka, as he struck out 9 and walked none over 7 innings en route to a victory. To me, it is a good sign for the Red Sox, as they may need him sooner than they think, with Josh Beckett suffering from back spasms, and being skipped in his next start. The Red Sox have to be hopeful that Matsuzaka will continue this, especially the zero walks part. They simply cannot catch the Rays or Yankees if they don't get better starting pitching than they have to this point.
