Scott Boras will be holding a press conference at his Newport Beach, Calif., offices at 9 p.m. EST this evening. The Japanese media, as well as the Associated Press, is expected to be on hand. Boras will be, or he had better be, asked about the state of negotiations between the Red Sox and his client, Daisuke Matsuzaka. Boras has not been heard from recently as talks have essentially broken down between him and the Red Sox about the fate of Matsuzaka.
I hope someone in that crowd will ask Boras why he hasn’t made a counteroffer after nearly three weeks and ask Matsuzaka whether he’s willing to play for dirt cheap and at risk of injury in Japan for two years.
