Another day, another roster move for the Red Sox. Just business as usual, at this point. The team sent Daisuke Matsuzaka to the disabled list on Tuesday, meaning that once again the roster would add a fresh face to the mix in hopes of keeping everything up and running. On the other side of the diamond, however, the Oakland A's didn't show any signs of distress after making a big move of their own before the game. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette has more.
