In a profile piece on Junichi Tazawa, is a swipe taken at Daisuke Matsuzaka?

Tazawa still has plenty of work to do, but it would appear the Red Sox are going to give him the time he needs to make himself major league ready. But because he has no professional experience prior to this year, he is not set in his ways.

The article then goes on to articulate a Red Sox philosophy.

“One of the things we try to teach in the organization is pitching to contact,” said Sea Dogs pitching coach Mike Cather, who pitched parts of three seasons in the big leagues with the Atlanta Braves. “The more pitches hitters see, the more difficult it is to get them out. Having him throw a pitch he has conviction with, rather than throwing a ball because he doesn’t want to throw the pitch, is way more important. When he takes that upon himself, that’s a big step.”
