Dice-K might pitch in Toronto after all

It looked like it might be no dice for Dice-K fans hoping to see Daisuke Matsuzaka next week in Toronto -- until Mother Nature stepped in Thursday.

The Red Sox and Mariners were rained out in Fenway Park and that means Boston's rotation will likely be shifted to allow Matsuzaka to pitch Tuesday night's 7:05 game in the Rogers Centre against the Blue Jays. Matsuzaka, who was outdueled Wednesday in Fenway Park by brilliant Seattle sensation Felix Hernandez, was scheduled to pitch Monday's annual 11 a.m. Patriots Day game in Fenway against the Angels.

After the visit to Toronto, Dice-K's likely next start will be a doozy -- April 22 in the ESPN Sunday night game against the Yankees in Fenway.
