Big League Stew - MLB

Daisuke Matsuzaka became the latest Bostonite to make a start for the Pawtucket Red Sox on Monday night, giving up two runs in five innings before declaring his right shoulder problem-free.

Dice-K, you might remember, has been on the DL with rotator cuff issues since May 28.

Anyway, the minor league appearance was Matsuzaka's first and — for some reason —it was a little strange to see someone whose negotiation rights were purchased for $50 million pitching in Pawtucket and against a team that's named the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

So have at it, amateur Internet copywriters of the world.

How should the caption to this photo of Dice-K read?

Follow the jump for winners from Monday's C-A-C:

"I'm calling an end to the Hall of Fame game."  

1st — dmart1018.

The Babe waddles past the line of children, preparing to select which one (or five) he is going to consume for dinner.

2nd — Mike M.  

Ron wonders if he would be missed if he stopped at Mulligans for a beer ...

3rd — jlpamc81.

Finally, we get a full-length photo of Kevin Kaduk.

(Sez 'Duk: "Yeah, I probably asked for that.")
