Buster Olney reports that the Sox have won the rights to negotiate an overinflated contract with Daisuke Matsuzaka with a bid in the $40 million range. Staggering. Previous high posting was $12 million for Ichiro.
PS: Apropos of nothing, we note that the DBacks have new unis. They now look like the Nationals, who look like the Astros, who look like the Angels, etc., but with some seriously lame typography. They’ve also got a sleeve patch that looks like an ejaculating penis. At least that’s unique.
