Okay, I was wrong about last night.  However, this team knocked Matsuzaka around pretty hard but a dismal performance by Proctor was the difference.  I said it then and I'll say it again, I have more confidence in Brian Bruney at this point and he should have been out there instead of Proctor.  This isn't 20/20 hindsight because I said it before Proctor threw his first pitch last night.

Anyways, tonight marks the return of Hideki Matsui from the DL, but the biggest news of the day is the announcement from Joe Torre that Phil Hughes will start against the Blue Jays on Thursday.  That should be a very interesting night.
