Daisuke Matsuzaka
's tenure in Boston has had it's up and downs. The lows have been magnified more than the highs, but the Japanese hurler can turn some heads from time to time.

Matsuzaka did that on Friday, pitching well in the Red Sox' victory over the Blue Jays. Matsuzaka didn't get the win, but manager Bobby Valentine thought the righty's fastball and changeup were as good as they've been all year.

Valentine was also pleased with the effort of guys like Daniel Nava and Mauro Gomez, who continue to fight despite the Red Sox being out of playoff contention.

Check out the video above to hear more postgame reaction from Valentine.
