Coming Out of Left Field

I have to learn to read headlines

Just now I was checking Yahoo! Sports for any news on Daisuke Matsuzaka, and got very excited when I saw a link saying the Sox had signed a Japanese pitcher. I immediately clicked into the story and started reading while calling out to the wife, "They signed him! A two-year contract!"

Then I read a little more and realized the contract was not for Matsuzaka (which I should've noticed right away since he's a righty and the headline referred to a lefty), but a relief pitcher named Hideki Okajima. Which is still good news, since the Sox need bullpen help and Okajima is a good setup guy. But it wasn't quite what I was hoping for. Back on the D-Mat watch ...
