The BoSox set the market with their bidding for Daisuke Matsuzaka. Now the Hanshin Tigers are licking their chops. Yesterday, they posted Kei Igawa, a 27-year-old lefty and 3-time Japanese league strikeout king, who this season posted a sub 3.00 era. Will the Sox, now that they’re Big Spenders, try to bring in someone for DM to talk to on his off days? Will the Yanks want to give Hideki a countrymate with whom he can discuss the finer points of anime porn? Place those bids, folks! Gavel comes down at 5 o’clock on November 27.
Fifty Million? Do I Hear Fifty Million?
