Dice-K eyeing rehab game next week

Dasiuke Matsuzaka may pitch in a rehab game next week, Terry Collins said on Wednesday.

Dice-K threw off flat ground on Wednesday, the first time since going on the DL in late July with elbow inflammation. He’ll likely pitch in a minor league game at some level to get stretched out, before returning to the bullpen.

Matsuzaka has a 3.87 ERA over nine starts and 19 relief appearances for the Mets this year.

He's on the DL?  Who'd have known.

Off-topic comment:  Cole Hamels was claimed on waivers.  If you were Sandy, would you have put in a claim on him - and offered Niese to PHL in trade?  Lots of $$ - but a major upgrade in talent, and an amazing L/R punch between Harvey & Hamels...

Whoa, totally forgot about him.

Anyone else notice that we haven't been as good without Matsuzaka, lately?
