Daisy Chain?

Wow. I didn't know "daisy chain" had so many meanings. Maybe another will be the sequence of events leading the Red Sox to the front-runner position to negotiate for Japanese hurler Daisuke Matsuzaka. If the Sox do win his signing rights AND sign him, then the first order of business will be nicknames.

Matsuzaka certainly has quite a resume in Japanese baseball, and the Sox obviously wanted to atone for last season's atrocity with a big splash. Dealing with $cott Bora$ won't be easy under the best of circumstances. I'm sure that Boras has a coffee-table book already prepared explaining how Daisy already belongs in the Hall of Fame.

Let's look at some other Daisies.

Daisy Duck.

Those of us old enough to remember L'il Abner and Al Capp remember Daisy Mae.

And the Dukes of Hazzard give us Daisy Duke...

So what have we here? Daisy Mats? Daiszilla? Yeah, Daiszilla. Bring on Daiszilla.

I think his nickname should be "Daisy Cutter" since he's going to carpet bomb the competition! ;)
