It’s 5:30am on the East Coast and no news yet. The Sox (and Peter Gammons) say that Daisuke Matsuzaka has to be on a plane for Boston this morning, or there’s not enough time to do a deal. I call BS. California is a big state. LA is a big city. With lots of sports teams. And even more doctors. This is another transparent move to put pressure on Scott Boras. It won’t work. The deadline isn’t takeoff.
I will be on the road all day, unfortunately. The rest of you can use this as a free-form open thread for all things Matsuzaka-san.
