Daisuke in camp
Daisuke Matsuzaka arrived at the Red Sox minor league complex in Fort Myers, Fla., at 12:01 this afternoon. He drove up to the Red Sox offices in a black Cadillac Escalade, and emerged wearing a sleeveless gray T-shirt, shorts and sunglasses perched atop his head. He was handed a black Adidas gym bag.
In Fort Myers to greet him were roughly 65 members of the Japanese media, another 25 to 30 American media members, and about 10 TV cameras.
As expected, Matsuzaka had nothing to say upon arrival.
At about 12:32, he left the clubhouse for his first look at the complex. He stretched and played long toss for about 15 minutes with catcher George Kottaras. The media was shooed away in the middle of the long-toss session.
He'll address the media on Thursday at 5 p.m.

Mitt channeling Sox energy?
Just moments ago, as a crowd in Dearborn, Mich., waited for Mitt Romney to formally announce his candidacy for president of the United States, the choice of music conjured Romney's home state of Massachusetts.
Yes, that was "Sweet Caroline," the anthem of summer nights at Fenway, drifting down from the loudspeakers.
