Stupid Red Sox fans or Yankee fans in disguise?

The Red Sox paid over $100 million to sign six years of Japanese pitching phenom Daisuke Matsuzaka (including over $50 million up front to buy "negotiating rights"). As you've heard by now, "Daisuke" is pronounced "dice-K," which of course lends itself to clever nicknames. Like "Dice-K."

And, of course, fan pictographs. Matsuzaka pitched very well in his debut, and a number of news organizations carried versions of this picture

with a caption like "Red Sox fans cheer on Dice-K."

I'm no expert in these things, but I read that as "Die-K."

Hmmmm, ARE there experts in these things? Maybe Puzzle Master Will Shortz?
Third Option: Disgruntled Seibu Lions fan?
