Kansas City, MO – The Royals played their season-opener this week against the Red Sox. They started off winning unexpectedly, 7-1 on Tuesday . . . but just as the weather chilled in Kansas City, so did the Royals luck. And they lost the next two games. But the games themselves were overshadowed by the major league pitching debut of a Japanese superstar . . . Daisuke Matsuzaka. He's becoming known in the US as Dice-K.
